There currently exists no direct method for predicting the righting energy of a ship based on key geometric hull properties. Consequently, naval architects traditionally select hull parameters based on other constraints and merely check the dynamic stability indicators after designing the preliminary body plan. Quantifying these relationships would allow such indicators to be used as design variables in optimizing a hull form. Additionally, the hull form has a considerable impact on ship motion theory and dynamic stability criteria. This thesis suggests possible functional relationships, to predict the residuary stability of a design using basic hull parameters
