    I have been using auto hydro for probabilistic damage calculation for passenger vessel of 70 pax .After running in auto hydro , i am getting the s value as 'zero' in all cases in spite of all dependent values of s like gz max, range , moment of heel, K value(c value), angle of heel etc within range. Is there any other factor determining s .....???????

    Well just a quick answer.

    The s factor is a calculated based on the values you mention and some other. Certain limitations are set by the rules, forcing the s-factor to be zero under certain circumstances. See SOLAS II-1 Reg 7-2 for the calculation of the s-factor.

    Its hard to see what's limiting your stability at the moment without any GA, or calculation results to look at. Maybe you can post some more information?
