Ship roll stabilization has received attention for more than a century. From a wide variety of anti-roll devices, the anti-roll tank (ART) is considered for its simplicity, low cost and action at low or even zero speed. In the past several types of ARTS have been proposed and tried in practice. The simplest type of ART is the free surface ART (FSART),see Figure 1.
