Building today's aircraft carriers is the culmination of science and the art of shipbuilding for maritime nations with this type of vessel in its naval fleet. The wartime role of aircraft carriers during the 20th century evolved rapidly, so in less than 50 years the aircraft carrier has changed from an auxiliary warship of limited combat value, into the most important and valuable genre of warship. As aircraft carriers grew in importance, so did the need to establish and improve the stability criteria, with special attention to determining the stability criteria after sustaining damage below the water line. Stability of aircraft carriers in damaged condition is vitally important from the standpoint of the retention of both operational and combat capabilities. The fundamental purpose of this paper is to verify the capability of an aircraft carrier after sustaining damage with regard to maintaining sufficient stability to be still operational and combat capable i.e. to withstand prevailing wind and seas in damaged condition. The results of these calculations were presented in the form of regression equations with an R 2 value of between 0.9 and 1, giving the possibility to use them for the fast and efficient prediction of the expected equilibrium position of the damaged aircraft carrier with a flooded compartment, or group of adjacent compartments. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
