Over the last years MARIN has developed an integrated model testing approach for the prediction of the performance of free-surface Anti Roll Tanks (ART) in reducing the roll motion of vessels. Beside the tailor-made test programme, the approach is mostly characterised by the specific test set-up that allows the measurement of the reaction forces generated by the ART on the ship model
during seakeeping tests in a wave basin. After a brief introduction of the working principle of free-surface ARTs and the MARIN test set-up and programme, the paper describes in detail the measurements obtained from ARTs during a series of seakeeping test campaigns.
