What are factors affecting Static Load on ships?

The loads acting on the hull structure when a ship is floating in still (calm) water are static loads.

These loads are imposed by the:

  1. Actual weight of the ship’s structure, outfitting, equipment and machinery.
  2. Cargo load (weight).
  3. Bunker and other consumable loads (weight).
  4. Ballast load (weight).
  5. Hydrostatic pressure (sea water pressure acting on the hull).
