Development of an algorithm for calculating the stability of a ship, applied in OBSS
2022, vol.14 , no.3, pp. 25-36
The paper presents an algorithm of the developed on board stability system (OBSS). The OBSS covers the new requirements for damage stability on tankers. The methods for calculations provide the opportunity to build the hydrostatic and the cross curves at a given condition. The program includes a module for direct construction of the limited curves for the maximum allowable applicable values of the center of gravity KG and the minimum allowable values of the initial metacentric height GM. In addition, a range of allowable values for GM is defined, which guarantee smooth fluctuating movements and minimize the kinetic symptoms.
