This course covers hydrostatics and stability principles for Ships and other floating structures: from hydrostatic equilibrium to righting arm curves and statutory stability criteria verification, and longitudinal strength.
- Hydrostatic principles, floatation, weight vs buoyancy, metacentric height.
- Righting arm curve & stability criteria
- Downflooding points
- Tank types & free surface models
- Heeling moment models
- Longitudinal strength: shear force & bending moment, girder deflection
