/ Stability of passenger vessels
French term or phrase: tassement des passagers
Stability of passenger vesssels.

Heading in a document about the effect on a vessel's stability when passengers are packed into one side.

I'm looking for something more "technical" sounding than "squeezing in", "packing", "compacting".

Any suggestions out there?

... b) In the worst service condition, the angle of heel due to the effect of crowding
of passengers should not be greater than 10 degrees or 80% of angle of deck ...

Thanks. The one word I hadn't thought of - and the clue to plenty of hits on "crowding of passengers and intact stability", technical enough for the Marine Safety Directorate (www.tc.gc.ca/MarineSafety/Directorate/TP/TP10405/Tp10405e.htm), technical enough for me!
