In October 1998, a post-Panamax, C11 class containership encountered extreme weather and sustained extensive loss and damage to deck stowed containers. The motions of the vessel during this storm event were investigated through a series of model tests and numerical analysis. This confirmed that parametric roll was the most likely cause of the accident. The results of this study were presented in a technical paper in 2003 (France et al 2003).
