A methodology is presented to systematically modify the hull shape of a ballast-free container ship, in order to manage the issue of righting lever variation in waves. The IMO second generation intact stability criteria have been identified as a stability performance assessment tool, while the vertical prismatic coefficient has been selected as the leading parameter of hull modifications to carry out the sensitivity analysis.

Abstract

A methodology is presented to systematically modify the hull shape of a ballast-free container ship, in order to manage the issue of righting lever variation in waves. The IMO second generation intact stability criteria have been identified as a stability performance assessment tool, while the vertical prismatic coefficient has been selected as the leading parameter of hull modifications to carry out the sensitivity analysis. A revised Lackenby procedure has been chosen to make systematic changes at the hull form. The outcomes of this investigation point out that the proposed procedure is suitable to enable the ship to be fully compliant with the IMO vulnerability levels with minor design adjustment.
