This paper presents experimental investigations involving the dynamic behaviour and survivability of a damaged ro-ro passenger ferry. It concerns a modern design, which has an extensive lower hold for ro-ro cargo purposes. Two main damage scenarios have been considered: lower hold intact and damaged. Besides damage survivability in beam waves, the research focused on the ship dynamics as a result of transiert flooding following a breach of the intact hull. The following parameters have been varied: KG, creation rate of damage opening, cross duct area, internal configuration and cargo deck permeability. Some conditions have been simulated numerically.
