Obar et al. described a series of model tests and a numerical model of a rectangular barge in
regular beam seas with three degrees of freedom in roll, heave, and sway used to investigate the onset of capsize. The model had minimal freeboard resulting in significant water-on-deck. This paper employs the numerical model to examine specifically the impact of the coupling in heave with heave velocity initial conditions or in sway with sway velocity initial conditions on ultimate stability. Direct comparison with experimental results was used to validate the numerical model and can be found in Lee et al.
