Ship antiroll gyros are a type of equipment used to reduce ships’ roll angle, and their parameters are related to the parameters of a ship and wave, which affect gyro performance. As an alternative framework, we designed a calculation method for roll reduction rate and considered random waves to establish a gyro parameter optimization model, and we then solved it through the bacteria foraging optimization algorithm (BFOA) and pattern search optimization algorithm (PSOA) to obtain optimal parameter values. Results revealed that the two methods could effectively reduce the overall mass and floor space of the antiroll gyro and improved its antirolling effect. In addition, the convergence speed and antirolling effect of the BFOA were better than that of the PSOA. View Full-Text
