Abstract : The report describes the development of a time domain computer simulation for ship capsizing in following waves. A survey of the recent literature in this field is presented. The formmulation of the present approach is discussed, along with computer program limitations and assumptions. The program developed is used to study the phenomenon of low cycle roll resonance as demonstrated by a two-dimensional section in forced heave motion and by a fast cargo liner in following waves, both regular and irregular.
