Abstract (english): Providing a reliable numerical tool for the prediction of parametric roll and pure loss of stability is a difficult task. It is acknowledged that the occurrence of these two failure modes is mainly attributed to the variation of roll restoring arm, which should be calculated accurately. This work studies exclusively the roll restoring arm variation numerically and experimentally. First, partially restrained experimental tests at different constant heeling angles (up to 30°) are conducted to measure the variation of roll restoring arm in regular waves. Second, a numerical method for the calculation of roll restoring arm in waves taking radiation and diffraction moments into account is adopted. The calculation results are benchmarked against experimental model test data. Third, the characteristics of roll restoring arm variation and the effects of radiation and diffraction moments on roll restoring arm variation (GZRD) in head and following seas are investigated. Finally, the feasibility of GZ calculated by the integral of instantaneously average wetted surface is studied by comparing the results with that calculated by the integral of the fully instantaneously wetted surface. The research show that the GZRD can be ignored in following seas. The GZ in head seas consists of two important harmonic components, and GZRD is the main contribution of the second harmonic component. Therefore, GZRD should be calculated with consideration of the instantaneous heeling angles and Froude number in head seas, especially for the prediction of large amplitude roll motion at high speed.
