Buoyancy and stability are the most important technical parameters of a ship. These must be carefully considered throughout the design process. Furthermore, relevant stability criteria are frequently checked also on board the ship. In this book the theory of ship buoyancy and stability are presented with several practical applications. The relevant regulations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), for both intact and damage stability, are also briefly reviewed. The focus is on the underlying physics and description of the applied assumptions and simplifications in the regulations. Therefore, the material is believed to be useful also for graduated naval architects in the industry.
