An Approximate Method for Cross Curves of Cargo Vessels
Abstract:In this study, a formula is presented to estimate cross curves of cargo vessels and to predict statical stability at the preliminary design stage of the vessel. The predictive technique is obtained by regression analysis of systematically varied cargo vessel series data. In order to achieve this procedure, some cargo vessel forms are generated using Series-60. The mathematical model in this predictive technique is constructed as a function of design parameters such as length, beam, depth, draft, and block coefficient. The prediction method developed in this work can also be used to determine the effect of specific hull form parameters and the load conditions on stability of cargo vessels. The present method is applied to a cargo vessel and then the results of the actual ship are compared with those of regression values.
