Tanks may have two permeabilities; one, which is used when the tank is intact, and the
other when it is damaged. Compartments and non-buoyant volumes have only one
permeability, thought it is listed in both columns. The compartment permeability is
applied when the compartment is flooded in a damage condition and the non-buoyant
volume permeability is applied at all times since it is always flooded.

In the case of damaged tanks and compartments, the permeability fraction is also applied
to the free-surface-moment contribution of that tank or compartment.

Permeability of Compartments

As opposed to tanks, compartments typically have structure (other than plate
stiffeners) and equipment inside. In case of large variations in permeability within
a compartment it is recommended to model separate linked compartments with
separate permeability to increase accuracy.
For example an engine room with engines and auxiliaries at the tanktop could be
divided up in a lower- and an upper engine room compartment. The lower
compartment will have a permeability of, for example, 60% and the upper
compartment a permeability of 95%. Depending on the level of accuracy required,
the engines and equipment could also be modelled individually as empty tanks.
