Small craft - Stability and buoyancy assessment and categorization - Part 1: Non-sailing boats of hull length greater than or equal to 6 m (ISO 12217-1:2015)

ISO 12217-1:2015 specifies methods for evaluating the stability and buoyancy of intact (i.e. undamaged) boats. The flotation characteristics of boats susceptible to swamping are also encompassed.
The evaluation of stability and buoyancy properties using this part of ISO 12217 will enable the boat to be assigned to a design category (A, B, C or D) appropriate to its design and maximum total load.
ISO 12217-1:2015 is principally applicable to boats propelled by human or mechanical power of 6 m up to 24 m hull length. However, it can also be applied to boats of under 6 m if they do not attain the desired design category specified in ISO 12217‑3 and they are decked and have quick-draining recesses which comply with ISO 11812.
In relation to habitable multihulls, ISO 12217-1:2015 includes assessment of susceptibility to inversion, definition of viable means of escape and requirements for inverted flotation.
ISO 12217-1:2015 excludes:
       inflatable and rigid-inflatable boats covered by ISO 6185, except for references made in ISO 6185 to specific clauses of ISO 12217;
       personal watercraft covered by ISO 13590 and other similar powered craft;
       gondolas and pedalos;
       sailing surfboards;
       surfboards, including powered surfboards;
       hydrofoils and hovercraft when not operating in the displacement mode; and
       submersibles.
ISO 12217-1:2015 does not include or evaluate the effects on stability of towing, fishing, dredging or lifting operations, which need to be separately considered if appropriate.

Petits navires - Évaluation et catégorisation de la stabilité et de la flottabilité - Partie 1: Bateaux à propulsion non vélique d'une longueur de coque supérieure ou égale à 6 m (ISO 12217-1:2015)

L'ISO 12217-1:2015 spécifie les méthodes d'évaluation de la stabilité et de la flottabilité des bateaux à l'état intact (c'est-à-dire non endommagés). Les caractéristiques de flottabilité des bateaux susceptibles d'envahissement sont également comprises.
L'évaluation des propriétés de stabilité et de flottabilité faite en utilisant l'ISO 12217-1:2015 permettra d'attribuer à un bateau une catégorie de conception (A, B, C ou D) appropriée à sa conception et à sa charge maximale.
L'ISO 12217-1:2015 est principalement applicable aux bateaux propulsés par l'énergie humaine ou une énergie mécanique, d'une longueur de coque de 6 m à 24 m compris. Elle peut, cependant, être également appliquée aux bateaux de moins de 6 m, s'ils n'atteignent pas la catégorie de conception désirée en appliquant l'ISO 12217-3, et s'ils sont pontés et munis de cavités rapidement autovideuses conformes à l'ISO 11812.
Pour ce qui concerne les multicoques habitables, l'ISO 12217-1:2015 comprend l'évaluation de la susceptibilité à l'inversion, la définition d'un moyen d'échappée viable et les exigences de flottabilité à l'état inversé.
L'ISO 12217-1:2015 exclut:
       les bateaux pneumatiques et semi-rigides couverts par l'ISO 6185, excepté lorsque l'ISO 6185 fait référence à des paragraphes spécifiques de l'ISO 12217;
       les véhicules nautiques à moteur (motos aquatiques), couverts par l'ISO 13590 et engins à moteur similaires;
       les gondoles et pédalos;
       les planches à voiles;
       les planches de surf, y compris les planches motorisées;
       les hydrofoils et les bateaux stabilisés par des plans porteurs lorsqu'ils ne sont pas en mode à déplacement; et
       les submersibles.
L'ISO 12217-1:2015 n'inclut ni n'évalue les effets sur la stabilité provenant du remorquage, de la pêche, du dragage ou d'opérations de levage, qui doivent être, si nécessaire, considérés séparément.

Mala plovila - Stabilnost in ocena vzgona ter kategorizacija - 1. del: Čolni razen jadrnic s trupom, večjim ali enakim 6 m (ISO 12217-1:2015)

Standard ISO 12217-1:2015 določa metode za oceno stabilnosti in vzgona brezhibnih (nepoškodovanih) čolnov. Zajete so tudi značilnosti plovnosti čolnov, ki so izpostavljeni zalivanju.
Ocena značilnosti stabilnosti in vzgona z uporabo tega dela standarda ISO 12217 bo omogočila, da bo čoln vključen v konstrukcijsko kategorijo (A, B, C ali D), ki je ustrezna glede na konstrukcijo in največjo skupno obremenitev.
Standard ISO 12217-1:2015 se uporablja predvsem za čolne, ki jih poganja človek ali stroj, z dolžino trupa od 6 do 24 m. Uporablja se lahko tudi za čolne, krajše od 6 m, če niso razvrščeni v želeno konstrukcijsko kategorijo, določeno v standardu ISO 12217-3, ter imajo krov in žlebove za hitro odvodnjavanje, ki so v skladu s standardom ISO 11812.
V povezavi z večtrupnimi bivalnimi plovili standard ISO 12217-1:2015 vključuje oceno izpostavljenosti prevrnitvi, navedbo ustreznih možnosti umika in zahteve za plovnost v prevrnjenem stanju.
ISO 12217-1:2015 se ne uporablja za:
napihljive čolne in napihljive čolne, ki imajo v spodnjem delu trupa togo enoto, ki jih obravnava standard ISO 6185, razen pri sklicih iz standarda ISO 6185 na določene točke standarda ISO 12217;
osebna plovila, ki jih obravnava standard ISO 13590, in druga podobna plovila na pogon;
gondole in čolne na pedala;
jadralne deske;
deske, vključno z deskami na motorni pogon;
hidrogliserje in plovila na zračno blazino, kadar ne delujejo v načinu izpodriva; ter
plovila, ki lahko plujejo pod vodno gladino.
ISO 12217-1:2015 ne vključuje ali ne vrednoti vpliva na stabilnost pri vlečenju, ribolovu, črpanju ali dvigovanju, pri katerih je treba ustreznost stabilnosti obravnavati posamezno.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Introduction

This part of ISO 12217 enables the determination of the limiting environmental conditions for which an

individual boat has been designed.

It enables the boat to be assigned to a design category appropriate to its design and maximum load.

The design categories used align with those in the Recreational Craft Directive of the European Union,

EU Directive 2013/53/EU.

The design category given in respect of stability and buoyancy is that for which the boat satisfies all the

requirements according to 5.3, as summarized in Annex I.

1 Scope

This part of ISO 12217 specifies methods for evaluating the stability and buoyancy of intact (i.e.

undamaged) boats. The flotation characteristics of boats susceptible to swamping are also encompassed.

The evaluation of stability and buoyancy properties using this part of ISO 12217 will enable the boat to

be assigned to a design category (A, B, C or D) appropriate to its design and maximum total load.

This part of ISO 12217 is principally applicable to boats propelled by human or mechanical power of

6 m up to 24 m hull length. However, it can also be applied to boats of under 6 m if they do not attain the

desired design category specified in ISO 12217-3 and they are decked and have quick-draining recesses

which comply with ISO 11812.

In relation to habitable multihulls, this part of ISO 12217 includes assessment of susceptibility to

inversion, definition of viable means of escape and requirements for inverted flotation.

This part of ISO 12217 excludes:

— inflatable and rigid-inflatable boats covered by ISO 6185, except for references made in ISO 6185 to

specific clauses of ISO 12217;
— personal watercraft covered by ISO 13590 and other similar powered craft;
— gondolas and pedalos;
— sailing surfboards;
— surfboards, including powered surfboards;
— hydrofoils and hovercraft when not operating in the displacement mode; and
— submersibles.

NOTE Displacement mode means that the boat is only supported by hydrostatic forces.

It does not include or evaluate the effects on stability of towing, fishing, dredging or lifting operations,

which need to be separately considered if appropriate.
