At The actual Sg ig always changingr particularly
in the
_lrarbour.
The effect of tide water and rivers is such
that constant measuring of the sg. is reguired
through
out loading. rn some harbours where the effects of
sea and fresh water mixing are extreme, it is necessary
to measure Fwd, Aft, and Midships Sg,s, dod use the
average for Draft and Deadweight calculations. It
may be necessary to get measurements for both port
and starboard sides of the ship if maximum accuracy
is reguired. Measuring the Sg at different depths
29
2. t0
may also be reguired.
Use a partly stopped, weighted container and a Iine
equal in length to the distance from the deck to the
kee1, to sample the water for Sg measurement. Drop
the container into the water and withdraw it at an
even rate. Witi: practice, the container will be
j
ust
filIeo as it breaks the surface. Water samples collec
ted in this way will represent a good average of the
water in which the ship is floating.
Sg measurements for Draft and Deadweight surveys must
be made with a certified hydrometer.
DENSITY AND TEMPERATURE
2.11 A great deal has been written regarding the effect
of temperature on density. This is important when
L7
consideratign,
or when specific gravity
sclentlf ic calculat ions.
2.L2 However, in draft Burveys, it is unnecessary
to measure
the tempetature of the river, lake, or oeean water
in which the vessel is riding. The hydrometer
reading,
if taken as Eoon as the sample is drawn, will include
the tenperature' as welr as the salinity effect on
specific gravity.
A GOLDEN RULE IS, THEREFORE, MEASURE THE WATER TEMPER
ATURE IF YOU MUST, BUT DO NOT USE IT IN DRAFT SURVEY
CALCUTATIONS.

The Bernou'lli effect can be ddmonstrated by trying
to blow a piece of card off the end of a cotton
reel
(Figure 5). It is
,impossible
to blow the
card off. The high air ve'locity on the inner face
of the cartl causes a Toqal drop in pressure

crest of a wave. There is less displacement
and therefore less support in the troughs.

219 Since the keel is constructed with a heavier weight
of metal, the deck is where almost all failures occur.
The deck of a cargo vessel is further weakened by
hatchways and other necessary openings. These openings
must be reinforced. Sharp corners tend to concentrate
stresses, So hatch corners reguire special attention.
2.2O The deck is subject to other stresses such as deck
cargo and the weight of water when heavy seas are
shipped. Since deck beams must be cut out at hatch
coamings, the load bearing strength is reduced. The
weight and placement of deck cargo and the effects
of heavy seas must be carefully considered. The deck
plates should be strengthened, if reguired. Hatch
coamings should be checked for strength and rigidity
I,ONGITUDINAL CENTRE OF GRAVITY
2.2L The longitudinal centre of gravity ( ;b
)
of a ship
is that point
along its ,.nnln where oJ"nulf of all
weights are forward, and onehalf aft. That is, it
is the balance point
for the ship and its contents.

Cargo segregation and port rotation sometimes make
ideal trimmirr,g difficult and costly. The consumption
of fresh water and fuel on a long voyage must be con
sidered.
The removal of weight can make a poor trim
worse or it can improve it, depending on where the
weight is located.

TRIM CORRECTION
3.15 Trim Correction values for a given Displacement are
tabulated
in the Ship Stability Manual. Even if these
are readily available, the following formulas should
be studied in order that the principles governing a
Draft Survey are ful1y understood.
3.16 Before calculating
the First Trim Correction, Corrected
Trim
(cT) (Ref. 3.3) must be converted from meters
to centimeters.
Multiply cT
(m) by 100 to get centi
rneters.
3.L7 To calculate the First Trim Correction,
nrultiply TRIM
by Tpc, then multlply the
product by the Longitudinal
centre of Flotation
( Lcr) x 100. Then, divide the
final product by the Length Between Perpendiculars
( LBP).

Trim and Stability calculations are mainly a matter
J
of correctly interpreting pians, tables, a.ta graphs.
ship stability and Tank manuals
provide va]ues for
Longitudinal Center of Gravity
( LCG
) ,
Transverse Center
of Gravity
( KG)
,
Moment of Inertia, and other data
necessary for ship loading calculations 
5.2 This data may be
j_n
graph form
(Figure 14), or tabular
(Figure 16). Tables are more common, and are easier
to work from.
/'^
(S.:)
Lonqitudinal Center of Gravity can be calculated from
\./
'/
the Forward
perpendicular (LCG FP), the After Perpendic
ular
(LCG AP), or from Midships
(MID)
Carcurations of LcG from the6p)are shorter, and avoid
dealing wlth two sets of longitudinal moments. This
greatly reduces the chance of error, so a1I our examples
will be based on LCG FP.
The LCG of a hol d is assumed to be at the longitudina]
center of that hold. The LCG of uniformly distributed,
homogeneous cargo, such aS grain, is also at the center
of the hold.

5.23 It is the responsibility of an office to always
maintain a stable ship, in order to protect Iives,
the ship and its cargo;
5.24 Stability calcufations are the most important
aspect of the loading calculations. Not only
the crewrs comfort but stress on a shiprs struc
ture is affected by stability, .ld a ship in
_1!aUfe
equilibrium is not so liable to capsize.
5.25 Transverse Stability

are familiar with, so only the main, practical
points are summarized here.

id'i rn a heavy seaway, the liquid in a srack tank
will surge with considerable
speed and force,
sometimes causing damage to the tank itself.
5.29 Fuel oil tanks are normaJly only f i]l_ecl to B 0

Fresh weier anc fuel are bcth
subject to daily consumption, so it is impossible
to keep these tanks fu11 for the entire voyage.
Dividers, or swash plates,
can minimize the free
surface to a large extent.
5.30 Sea water ballast tanks shou]d be either filIed
to their limit, or empty. When filling these
tanks, it is good practice
to let them overf low

GRAIN LOADING
6.1 If a ship i.s to darry grain, it must have a Grain
.
Loading
Plan. This plan must meet with IMco and
SOLAS reguirements,
and must be approved by the
approPriate
Government AgencY
IMCO ANd SOLAS REQUIREMENTS
6.2 The IMCO and SOLAS requlrements for loading grain
are:
6.2.1 The Angle of Heel due to shift of grain
shall not be greater than twelve
( \2') degrees
'
6 2.2 ' The residual stab
jlity
area shal1 not be
Iess than 0.075 metreradians.
6.2.3 The correct metacentric
height sha1l not
be less than 0.30 metres.
GRAIN STABILITY CALCULATIONS
6.3 The trim and stability and Grain stability should
be made as soon as details of the grain cargo
to be loaded are received.
Depending on the stowage
Factor(SF)ofthegraintobeloaded,slackholds
may be reguired.
check the approved Grajn Loading
Ptand for the designated slack holds in this situ

The actual Horizontal
Heeling Moment

GENERAL
CTTAPTER SEVEN
rcLLING PERIOD IESI FOR G,I
7.L l{tren a large anount of deck cargo is ca:ried, or dien port
rctation
produces unusual weight concentration in upper ho1ds,
stabiJity must receive careful attention. l,lhren a ship is
nearing her stability liJrit, and there is a significant anpunt
of cargo deadweight allowances yet available, it is goo'd
practice to conduct a rolling period test in stjl1 waters.
7.2 The Rollilg Period Test is nrost freguently used for tjmber
carriers, but should be applied vtrcnever G,l is an important
factor for loading. It should be noted that safe ocean cross
ings have been nnde by ships having a minirnrn corrected Gtr4
of not nrcre ttran 0.03 M at any point in the vo\zage.
7.3 The loss of A{ t}rrough constrrption of Fuel Oi1 and Ftesh
Water nn:st be taken into account. An average loss of 04
per day can be derived f:ron the.detrnrture ard arrival. Ttim
ard Stability calculations.
7.4 Ttre nnin advantage of conducting a rolling period test is
that the actual GM is observed, making the result alnost
error free. There will be a large difference between the
corputed G"1 based on the shipcuiJder's data and the actual
G'1 based on test. This is because the shipbuilders base
their ccrrputations on the Inclining Eperinrent of an enpty
ship.
T]}{BER DECK CARGO
7.5 When loading a deck cargo of tinber, particularly drlr, sawn
tjnber, add fifteen
(15) percent to the deck cargo weight.
Tirber terds to absorlc water at sea, ard this causes a consid
erable loss of GM.

7.8 For the rolling period test to give good results, the follow
ing conditions must be nret:
7.8.1 ff the ship is alongside, she nmst be clear of her
berth, wj.th her lines slack, so she can roll freely.
7.8.2 Barges
And
lighters nn:st be vlell clear so as to not
hinder the ship's novernent.
7.8.3 Enough weights rnust be available to l_ist the ship
at least fifteen ( 15
)
degrees. T\,vo or more derricks may
be reguired.
IWTE: The stsredores should be infornred in advance if the need
for a test sesns likeIy. Their cooperation in iifting
the weights is often required.
7.9 ltre best position for the observers is the forecastle deck.
There they can note the incunation of the supersbrrcture,
especially the bridge wing, against a reference point.

L0 Lift the weights on one side of the ship. when the ship
has been steadied in the listed
lnsition,
drop the weights
onto the dock or into the water. Ensure the cargo r:unners
are slack, so they offer no resistance.

Thc stability
information

having regard to the foregoing'
It is recommcnded
that items (a) and (b) above be included in.the stability Infonnation Booklet as guidance notes to
thc mastcr.
AS.10:2
Areas n'here the formation of ice should be taken into account
A ship which may trade in such an area during winter should be in possession of stability information which indicates the
cffcct of thc formation
of ice on the exposed hull, superstructure and deck cargo.
,I.his
cffect should be taken as either a "full icing allowance" or "half icing allowance' depending upon the particular
arca of operation.
These allowances and areas of operation are as follows
Fult icing allowance
An exoosed horizontal surfaces
(decks, house tops and tops ofdeck cargo etc) should be assumed to carry an ice weight
ornig# Gztbtth.
To account for the weight of ice considered
likely to form on all exposed vertical surfaces it should be assumed that
this weight equates to that ihictr woutd result if the lateral area of one side of the ship (and any deck ergo) above the
waterline was subjected to an ice weight of lskght
(3'l lb/O'
The position of the centre of gravity shoutd be calculated having regard to the respective heights of the assumed ice
covered areas. In the case of the projected lateral area the elfect of sundry booms, rails,
'*'ires
etc (which will not have
been included in the area calculated) shculd be taken into accouni by increasing the calculated weight by 5 per cent and
the calculated moment of this weight by 10 per cent'
Half icing allowance
This should be taken as one half of the "full icing allowance"'
Areas where a "full icing allowance" should be applied
(a) The area north of latitude 660 30'N between longitudes 10o w and the Norwegian coast'
(b) The drea north of latitude 630 N between longitudes 28o W and 10o W'
(c) The area north of latitude 4f N between the North American continent and longitude
28o W'
(d) All sea areas north of the European, Asian and North American continents east and west of the areas defined in
(a),
O)
and (c) above.
(e) The Okhotsk and Bering Seas and the Gulf of Tatary'
(0 All areas south of latitude 600 S.
Areas where a Aalf icing altowance" should he applied
All areas north of latitude 610 N between longitude zsp w and the Norwegian coast which are south of the areas which
require a'full icing allowance.' other areas frthin the Seasona! Winter Zone (as defined in the Rules) agreed between
!L
owners and thc Department when warranted by experience'
