Theories and procedures for predicting a ship’s hydrostatic response to various conditions are addressed. Methods for computing the stability characteristics of both intact and damaged ships are studied. Floodable length computations are taught. Stability and subdivision criteria are explained. The lines plan for a hull form is developed and analyzed. A naval architect must have below abilities to generate a good job on this subject: Describe methods for calculating a ship’s hydrostatic properties, including calculation of areas, volumes, centroids, and important hydrostatic parameters such as Δ, LCF, LCB, KB, KM, TPI, MT1. Draw and interpret a ship’s lines drawing. Calculate … Continue reading SHIP HYDRO STATIC & STABILITY
