Abstract : The patent relates to a device whereby a ship mounted stabilizer roll tank is instrumented to generate signals indicative of the tank moment. The ship is also instrumented to generate signals indicative of its actual roll. The measured tank moment is weighted to yield a signal indicative of the difference between the actual stabilized roll and the estimated unstabilized roll.
