AbstractA comprehensive study of the physics of capsize phenomenon, focused on the behavior of small fishing boats in extreme waves, has been conducted by the National Research Council of Canada. The paper presents a philosophy of an original concept of experimental investigation into the mechanism of ship capsizing, which consists in a specially designed composition of free and captive model tests. Also outlined are the experimental technique developed and the test program.
