Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

The International Maritime Organisation is developing the second generation intact stability criteria which include parametric rolling, pure loss of stability and the other three failure modes. This paper will focus on the application of the draft parametric rolling and pure loss of stability criteria on the well-known post-Panamax C11 class containership and a high speed containership developed in the FASTPOD project. The roll amplitude calculated from the proposed analytical method in level 2 parametric rolling criteria is compared to experiment results. The influence of the main particulars on the check by the criteria is investigated.
