INITIAL TRANSVERSE METACENTRE
This is the point of intersection of the lines of action o buoyancy force (Bf) when the ship is in the upright andsubsequentlyheeled conditions
within small angles of heel.

where
v
is the volume of the transferred wedge of buoyancy and
V
is the ship¶s volume of displacement.

If B is plotted for several small angles of heel it may be assumedthat it follows the arc of a circle centred at M.

BM is termed the
metacentric radius
and the height of the initialtransverse metacentre (KM) may be calculated thus:

=
