Damage Stability and Decision Support - How can we be better prepared and what questions do the teaching face?
Paper i proceeding, 2006
In the case of a damage situation adequacy of ship stability can become questionable. In a situation like that it is important that the Master of the ship makes the right decisions. The first moments can often be very crucial for the development of the damage and thus the whole situation. This paper discusses the design of a damage stability education and presents examples of decision support systems which also were worked with during a research project called Damage Stability Control in the education of Master Class 1 in the merchant fleet, with or without Safety and Cargo System.
