Let’s take a look at intact stability criteria and inclining experiment, the two stages of ship design and construction where evaluation of GM is an absolute necessity and plays a major role in ensuring that the ship is stable.
Torsion box is a continuous structure in the top part of ship’s longitudinal bulkhead, freeboard deck and sheer strake which provides sufficient strength against torsional moments and other bending loads. Read inside the article to know more on the importance of torsion box.
Ship designers must know the important aspects of the IACS Common Structural Rules (CSR). Let’s take a look at the most important and notable aspects of the Common Structural Rules (CSR) for solid bulk carriers and oil tankers.
The easiest and handiest tool for analysing a surface ship’s stability, is by graphs or curves. A ship designer or an officer on-board should be able to know the stability characteristics of a ship just by looking at the curves. Let’s understand curves of static stability of a vessel.
