Stability – I : Chapter 5

    1. From the following information , calculate the DWT available up to the tropical loadline SW :-
Persent freeboards : port 1.6m, starboard 1.79m inRD 1.017.
Tropical SW freeboard : 1.63m
Tropical of  SW draft : 9.6m
FWA 150mm, TPC 20.4 .
Solution :

Present freeboard port = 1.68cm
Stbd side = 1.79m
Water of RD = 1.017,
Tropical SW freeboard = 1.63c
Tropical SW draft = 9.6m
FWA = 150mm
TPC = 20.4

  • A ship loads in fresh water to her salt water marks and proceeds along a
    river to a second port consuming 20 tonnes of bunkers. At the second port,
    where the density is 1016 kg per cu. m, after 120 tonnes of cargo have been
    loaded, the ship is again at the load salt water marks. Find the ship’s load
    displacement in salt water.

  • A mariner Enters port with 17,700 tons displacement,KG=28 feet, and GG=1.05 feet.A piece of Heavy machinery which weighs 180 tons is lifted by shore based cranes and placed on death so that its centre of gravity is 47 ft above the ship Khel and 19 feet two star board of centerline what will be the final mean draught gvm and angle of list when loading is complete?
