The DDG5l pre-contract hull form as represented by Model 5514 was evaluated for capsize events at End of Service Life Load Limit for the Righting Arm Limiting and In tact 100 Knot Wind Limiting KG Conditions. The results are compared to FREDYN 9.3 predictions, and results from previous Model 5514 capsize experiments. Results are also presented for a limited number of calm water maneuvering and irregular wave test. The results are to be used as benchmarks for comparison with capsize results observed for future hull forms as compared to conventional hull forms.
