AbstractA comprehensive study of the mechanism of ship capsizing in heavy seas is conducted at the National Research Council Canada. The focus is put on the behaviour of small fishing vessels in quartering extreme waves. The paper presents some detailed analyses of model experiments. The composition of ship motions during the whole cycle of a quartering wave passing the ship length, and the hydrodynamic forces, exerted on the hull, are identified. The majority of submergence on a ship propensity to capsizing. The hydrodynamic phenomenon and the subsequent couplings are heeling moments created in such a situation are discussed.
