To help investigate the July 26, 2006, Crown Princess heeling casualty, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has developed a method to extract forces and moments acting on a ship from voyage data recorder (VDR) and other sources of recorded motion parameters. Other parameters can also be extracted with this simulation technique.
