Abstract

Determination of the stability parameters and the position of a ship in the condition of flooding of the watertight compartment W. Mironiuk, A.Pawlqdzio & R. Wr6bel The Naval University of Gdynia, Poland Abstract This paper presents the results of stability calculations in the case of damaged watertight compartment during flooding. Working out these calculations there have been applied the constant displacement method and the method of established volume. The work has contributed to the analysis of changes of metacentric height, angles of heel and angles of trim, which may occur during flooding of the watertight compartment. The method of determination of the position of a ship during the flooding of the watertight compartment and computer programmes elaborated might be exercised on training stability and survivability simulator which is being prepared to be executed at The Naval University of Gdynia. These calculations might be of some help in training midshipmen and functional persons who ar
