Abstract: A procedure is presented that can serve within the ADOPT DSS framework as a prediction tool for large amplitude roll motions. Several failure criteria are discussed for different applications. The core of the motion analyzer is the simulation code E4-ROLLS, which is fast and robust enough to generate time series on the ship motions in heavy weather. The procedures defined for the DSS were tested for some full-scale accidents, where one application was demonstrated in this paper.
