Abstract
To study the motion behaviour of a damaged frigate, tests have been performed in calm water and in waves of different heights and periods. The paper contains comparisons between experiments and simulations for selected conditions, that allow to highlight the effect of Air-Flow. Particular attention is also paid to transient flooding and roll transients, and to the effectiveness of cross flooding arrangements. Significant air flow has been observed during the experiments and the paper aims at assessing the importance of the phenomenon in modelling the behaviour of the vessel.
