Experience from Parametric Rolling of Ships
2012 (English)In: Parametric Resonance in Dynamical Systems / [ed] Fossen T. I., Nijmeijer H., Springer, 2012, 147-165 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter reviews three recent full-scale events with parametric rolling for Ro–Ro Large Car and Truck Carriers (LCTC). The events represent three principally different modes of parametric rolling: principal parametric resonance where the period of encounter is half of the roll natural period in following seas (I) and in head seas (II), and fundamental parametric resonance where the period of encounter coincides with the roll natural period in following seas (III). Roll motion, course, and speed recorded during the events are presented and analyzed together with the present weather situation based on recordings, forecasts, and re-analysis. Different aspects of on-board operational guidance for assisting crews in avoiding parametric rolling are discussed in relation to the presented events. Involved complexities and considerations that are normally not included in well defined model tests or numerical simulations are exposed.
