Page 7
.

A graph of these values at the various heel angles forms a GZ curve. These additional data depend on which (if any) stability criteria have been selected. A range of heel angles are specified and Hydromax calculates the righting lever and other hydrostatic data at each of these heel angles by balancing the loadcase displacement against the hull buoyancy and. the centre of gravity against the centre of buoyancy such that the trimming moment is zero. curves of form and sectional area at each draft are available. the horizontal distance between the centres of gravity and buoyancy. Various other information is often overlaid on the GZ curve.

The selected stability criteria are evaluated. this may be specified. the centre of gravity is increased until one of the criteria fails.
Limiting KG Quickstart
The Limiting KG analysis may be used to obtain the highest vertical position of the centre of gravity (maximum KG) for which the selected stability criteria are just passed. The computed KN results will then give a more accurate estimate of GZ for KG close to the estimated VCG since the effects of VCG on trim have been more accurately accounted for. If the analysis is performed free-to-trim and an estimate of the VCG is known.

Floodable Length Quickstart
This analysis mode is used to compute the maximum compartment lengths based on user-specified equilibrium criteria. only damage criteria will be evaluated. If the analysis is unable to converge for a certain displacement this will be noted and the next displacement tried. As well as the standard deck edge and margin line immersion criteria (one of which must be specified) the user can also add criteria for maximum trim angle and minimum required values of longitudinal and transverse metacentric height. A check will be made to ensure that any selected equilibrium criteria are passed. only intact criteria will be evaluated. if the intact condition is used. If limiting curves are required for each of the stability criteria individually. In addition a range of permeabilities may be specified. The VCG is also required to ensure accurate balance of the CG against the CB at high angles of trim.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
A graph of maximum permissible GZ plotted against vessel displacement is produced as well as tabulated results indicating which stability criteria limited the VCG. however at least one large angle stability criterion is required. are very insensitive to VCG and may prevent the analysis converging. such as angle of maximum GZ. Only relevant criteria will be used. For more detailed information see Limiting KG on page 95.to. Floodable Length Analysis Requirements

Preparing a Design in Maxsurf
There are several important checks that must be carried out in Maxsurf before opening a design in Hydromax:
Setting the Zero Point Setting the Frame of Reference Surface Use Skin Thickness Outside Arrows Trimming Coherence of the Maxsurf surface model
Setting the Zero Point
Ensure that the zero point is correctly setup in Maxsurf. The frame of reference defines the fore and aft perpendiculars.
Setting the Frame of Reference
It is vital that the Frame of Reference is correctly setup in Maxsurf before attempting to analyse the model in Hydromax.
Page 18
. However it is possible to specify upto nine additional locations at which the drafts should be reported. In Hydromax you have the option of displaying longitudinal measurements such as LCB or LCF from the model zero point or amidships. A consistent zero point and frame of reference should be used for the model throughout the Maxsurf suite. The frame of reference cannot be changed in Hydromax.

e. ensure that the thickness and projection direction have been specified for the hull shell surfaces.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Note: Draft and Trim specification It should be remembered that the drafts specified for an analysis are the drafts at the perpendiculars (or amidships) and the trim specified (and reported) is the difference between the draft at the AP and draft at the FP. To activate skin thickness in Hydromax ensure that the “Include Skin Thickness” option is selected when reading the file or calculating the hull sections. the internal structure surface should be placed to model the inside of the tank if the tank wall has significant thickness.
Skin Thickness

Internal Structure
If skin thickness is to be used in hydrostatic calculations. i.
Surface Use
In Maxsurf you can choose between two types of surface use Hull Hull surfaces are used to define the watertight envelope of the hull. Internal structure Internal structure surfaces are used for all other surfaces (any surfaces which do not make up the watertight envelope) and also surfaces which are to be used in Hydromax to define the boundaries of tanks and compartments that have complex shapes. To include skin thickness. internal surfaces will be ignored in the forming of hydrostatic sections.
Page 19
. Thickness can be specified differently for each hull surface. The following table describes the difference between each surface use in Hydromax: Included: Hydrostatic sections Selection of tank/compartment boundaries Skin thickness applied to the surface Verify that all surfaces that are to be used as tank/compartment boundaries are defined as Internal Structure. Note Tank boundaries made from internal structures surfaces do not have skin thickness. Skin thickness for hull surfaces will be treated so that the hull sections go to the outside of the plate whilst any tanks are trimmed to the inside of the plate. If a surface is defined as internal structure. resulting in more accurate hydrostatics. it is not included as part of the hull shell by Hydromax.

Coherence of the Maxsurf surface model
Hydromax will generally have no problem correctly interpreting your design as long as the following requirements for the Maxsurf model are observed:
Page 20
. Ensure that you have used the Outside Arrows command from the Maxsurf Display menu to define which direction points outwards (towards the seawater) for each surface. you should have completely closed transverse sections or sections with at most one opening (e.

Note: Maxsurf surface trimming information may vary for different precisions. Reducing the precision of the sections can greatly improve performance.
Surface Precision
The Surface Precision options has two functions:
Setting for calculating the hydrostatic sections Setting used to form new compartments or tanks. sounding pipes etc. there are two options:
Page 22
. key points. if it was known that a design had a significant discontinuity in its sectional area curve at amidships. The upper limit for the number of stations is 200.
The precision at which the design was saved in Maxsurf is included in the Maxsurf design file (. For example. It also allows designs with significant longitudinal discontinuities in their sectional areas to have stations specified either side of the discontinuity. To open an existing design. Reducing the number of stations will speed up the analysis time but reduce the accuracy. Hydromax also allows saving of all input and output files into individual files. Therefore it is recommended not to change the precision setting when opening the Maxsurf design file in Hydromax. avoiding any errors inherent in the integration of evenly spaced stations. This is extremely useful for hulls that have features such as keels or bow thrusters that need to be accurately modelled and may need a locally denser station spacing to do so.
Note: The accuracy of the results depends much more on the number of sections than the accuracy at which the sections are calculated. Hydromax recognises this precision setting and will and set the Surface Precision button accordingly. by specifying one station 1mm aft of amidships and one station 1mm forward of amidships this discontinuity can be modelled very accurately. The first option allows you to use the station grid created in Maxsurf. conversely increasing the number of stations will increase the analysis time but lead to higher accuracy results.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Updating the Hydromax Model
To update the hydrostatic sections to the latest Maxsurf Design File. it is more likely that this option would be selected if it was realised that the zero point for the tank plan were slightly different than the zero point of the lines plan and a small correction to the zero point was required.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Click “no” to maintain position relative to zero point. select “Recalculate Hull sections” in the analysis menu after reloading the Maxsurf Design File with the “read existing data and sections from file” option selected. This function can also be used to include/exclude surface thickness or change the number of sections and to change use/not use trimmed surfaces without reloading the Maxsurf Design File. Any tanks and loadcases will also be updated with this command. loads etc relative to the hull.
Selecting “no” will move all data other than the margin line with the zero point. but their numerical values will remain the same: The example shown is quite extreme. Thus the tanks and loads etc. will move relative to the hull.

Whilst it is always preferable to give Hydromax a completely closed model with no ambiguities. “hydrostatic sections” or just “sections”.
Hydromax Sections Forming
Hydromax works by applying trapezoidal integration to data calculated from a series of cross sections taken through the Maxsurf model surfaces. non-intersecting (and non-self-intersecting) contours.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Note: Changes to the Maxsurf design are only recalculated after the new Maxsurf design has been re-loaded into Hydromax. a hull surface with no deck). or can be unambiguously closed. The same is true for groups of internal surfaces that have been selected to define a tank boundary. compartment definition etc remain part of the Hydromax design file. 4) use the “Recalculate Hull Sections” from the analysis menu.

.g. This section outlines the section forming process used in Hydromax and may be helpful when preparing a Maxsurf design for Hydromax. Hydromax deals only with sections that are completely closed. Note: The golden rule is that for any longitudinal position. Hydromax will automatically form these sections. using “Read existing data and sections” to make sure the loadcase. one opening is acceptable and this will be automatically closed with a straight line. the section must be made up of closed. contours cannot be contained wholly within another contour. This means that if the model is simultaneously being edited in Maxsurf and Hydromax. In practice. Hydromax will try to resolve any problems with the model definition in the manner outlined in the following sections. Hydromax will automatically close the section with a straight line connecting the opening ends. Furthermore. the section is made up of two line segments. This is not an acceptable shape. having both a gap at the centreline as well as an open deck).g. an ambiguity exists as to how the two line segments will be connected. called “Hydromax sections”. it is necessary to: 1) save and close the model in Hydromax 2) save in Maxsurf 3) open in Hydromax.

A common example of ambiguous sections is a model with multiple decks. because there are too many dependencies in the program. Hydromax will make an attempt to remove excess portions of the curve to form a single continuous contour.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
A section through a multihull containing a single closed contour
A section comprising two closed contours
Hydromax will link curve segments together if they are only separated by a small amount. The user cannot change these tolerances.
Ambiguous Sections (e. Hydromax will have difficulties distinguishing the intended main deck.

. Where surfaces intersect. However this is not always possible so it is much better practice to trim the model correctly manually.g.

If the bulwark‟s volume is expected to influence the hydrostatic calculations. In particular.
Checking the Hydromax model
Before starting any analysis you should check whether Hydromax has been able to correctly interpret your design. the left and right arrow cursor keys will enable you to step through the sections one-by-one. but this depends on the height of the bulwark relative to the rest of the section. For more information see the Maxsurf manual. look closely at intersections between surfaces to make sure that Hydromax has interpreted the shape correctly. Therefore. This works the same as the Maxsurf body plan window and is an extremely powerful tool to validate your Hydromax model. you can step through the sections one-by-one to verify that they have been correctly calculated.
Show Single Hull Section
In the body plan view. checking your sections after opening the design in Hydromax is strongly recommended. These sections should be continuous with no gaps and no unexpected lines. To prevent ambiguities it is recommended to trim the bulwark in Maxsurf.
Show Single Hull Section Checking the Sectional Area Curve Using Rendering to Check the Model
Note: Sections that are not formed correctly cause the majority of problems with Hydromax models. The following tools are available to validate the Hydromax model. Incorrect sections in the model will give incorrect results. generally these will be treated correctly by Hydromax and removed.
Page 30
. You can then click in the inset box to view the sections. This is done by selecting Show Single Hull Section in Body Plan view from the Display menu.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
The example above has bulwarks. the bulwark‟s volume has to be properly modelled in Maxsurf by modelling both the outside and the inside of the bulwark.

This is not a foolproof method since it does not necessarily highlight problems in the non-immersed part of the hull. Using Rendering to Check the Model
The model may also be rendered. If this displays any unexpected spikes or hollows Hydromax may not have correctly interpreted the hull shape. which makes it easier to see if there are any areas of the model which have not been properly defined. Select Render from the Display menu whilst in the perspective view and turn on the sections:
Page 31
.
This Cross Sectional Area curve indicates there may be a problem with section forming from 12 m to 16 m.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Checking the Sectional Area Curve
Another way of checking the Hydromax model is to perform a specified condition analysis at quite deep draft and look carefully at the sectional area curve in the graph window.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Note: In rare instances incorrect rendering may occur. As long as the sections are formed correctly.
Further detailed checking of hull and tank/compartment sections
When checking that your model is correct. you are interested in whether the sections are correct. This does not necessarily mean that the model is incorrect. To do this go to the body plan view in Hydromax and select “Show Single Section”:
Page 32
. the model is correct.

In the single section view. then you can show all of them. if there are many it may help to hide some and check a few at a time). only tank sections near the current hull section are shown:

. but turn on the visibility of all the tanks of interest (if there are few tanks.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Then to check that the tanks are OK. leave the view as it is.

Coordinate System
Hydromax uses the Maxsurf coordinate system:

. it is important that you set up the required initial conditions for the design. Hydromax uses the aft perpendicular and forward perpendicular together with the baseline and the zero point for all calculations and gives the results in the units specified in the display menu.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Setting Initial Conditions
All Hydromax calculations are performed in the frame of reference of the model. Note: Before you run any analysis using Hydromax.

From the stern. some analysis results will be meaningless or may even fail to complete.
Frame of Reference and Zero Point
It is essential that a frame of reference be specified. Drafts are always measured to the Baseline in the centre plane of the vessel. Changing the zero point after you have started analysing the model in Hydromax is not recommended.
Draft Marks
Drafts are automatically calculated at the perpendiculars and amidships. See: Setting the Zero Point and Setting the Frame of Reference on page 18. This is done through the Data | Draft Marks dialog. Immersed depth measurements are made perpendicualar to the free-surface. Draft and trim are measured on the forward and aft perpendiculars. you may specify upto nine additional locations at which the drafts should be reported. looking fwd From above. bow to the right.

If the loadcase does not update. Any changes to the loadgroup are then automatically incorporated into any loadcases that reference them. Static weights that make up the vessel lightship are specified here as well as tank filling levels. The exception to this is if tanks have not yet been formed or the vessel is still rotated from the result of an analysis. A loadgroup is included in a loadcase simply by specifying the loadgroup name in the “Item Name” column. These may be used to define groups of fixed weights (such as the steel weight or lightship weight) in a single location which may then be cross-referenced into a loadcase.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Modelling Box Shape Tanks
Simple tanks and compartments are created by specifying six values that define a boxshaped boundary for the tank. This box will be called the Boundary Box. This is done by finding the intersection of the tank bounding box and the hull. Each value defines one of the six planes of the tank.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
This will give you a new set of compartment definitions with one default tank. and the port and starboard limits of the tank.

Select Add or Delete Compartment from the Edit menu. Hydromax will form the sections that define the tanks and compartments. Thus it is not necessary to make the tanks fit the hull manually – this is done automatically by Hydromax. The column headings in the Compartment Definition table include terms such as 'F Bottom. When the “Update Loadcase” command from the Analysis menu is used. make sure you have created a Compartment definition file.
Adding and Deleting Compartments
Before you can start adding compartments.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Modelling Tapered Tanks

The default is for compartments to have parallel sides. If you wish to define tapered compartments, it is possible to enter different transverse and vertical values for the points defining the forward and aft ends of the compartment. If a different value is entered in one of the “ditto” columns, a tapered tank will result. Tanks can be tapered or sloped in Plan or Profile views. Hydromax does not have a mechanism for creating a sloped tank boundary in the Body Plan view.

By changing the “ditto”-input fields, tapered tanks can be formed

Note: Tapering can be done in Plan and in Profile view. Tapered tanks in Body Plan view have to be created using a boundary surface. See Modelling Tanks Using Boundary Surfaces on page 54.

Linked Tanks

Tanks and compartments may be linked. This means that although they are defined as separate tanks, they act as a single tank with a common free surface. To link tanks, compartments or non-buoyant volumes, first make them the same type as the parent and give them the same name. The easiest way to do this is to copy and paste the name from the Name column of the parent row into the Name column of the linked tank row. They may then be linked to the parent by typing l or linked in the Type column. Linked tanks and compartments do not have to be physically linked in space. However, the fluid in a linked tank or damaged compartment is always assumed to be able to flow freely between the linked volumes.

Page 53

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Modelling Tanks Using Boundary Surfaces

Tanks, compartments and non-buoyant volumes may have their boundaries defined by surfaces as well as being constrained to particular dimensions. This allows for the modelling of arbitrarily shaped tanks.

Forming tanks using boundary surfaces

The surfaces to be used to define the tank boundaries are selected by clicking in the Boundary Surfaces column in the middle of the Compartments Definition table. A dialog will appear that allows you to select which surfaces form the boundary of the tank. If a tank uses boundary surfaces, the cell in the Boundary Surfaces column is coloured blue.

Page 54

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

If you wish to use a Maxsurf surface to define a tank or compartment, tick next to the surface name in the Boundary Surface list. Note that symmetrical surfaces appear twice as there will be a starboard and a port side copy of the surface. The Starboard surface is first in the list and the Port surface second. The port surface is also identified with the suffix (P) after the name. Note: Only internal structure surfaces appear in the boundary surfaces list. Symmetrical surfaces are duplicated, with the port-side surface having “(P)” appended to the surface name. After selecting the internal surfaces, it is necessary to type in the extents of the boundary box. Hydromax will automatically set the “Fore” and “Aft” limits of the boundary box to just within the longitudinal limits of the Boundary Surface. This ensures that at least 12 sections are inserted in the tank. Also see: Forming Compartments on page 62 Number of Sections in Tanks on page 67 Longitudinal Extents of Boundary Box on page 67

Modelling External Tanks

External tanks may not be modelled in Hydromax. However, it is normally possible to add "Hull" surfaces in the Maxsurf model, which will enclose the external tanks. The tanks can then be modelled in Hydromax.

Additional box-shaped hull surfaces used to define deck tanks

Page 55

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Modelling Non-Buoyant Volumes

Non-buoyant volumes are effectively permanently flooded compartments. These parts of the hull can normally be modelled using trimmed hull surfaces. However, there are occasions where it is more convenient to use non-buoyant volumes. In some cases, where the volume to be flooded forms sections within the hydrostatic section, this is the only option, e.g. waterjet ducts. The choice whether to use trimmed surfaces or nonbuoyant volumes is primarily determined by the length of the non-buoyant volume relative to the length of the vessel. Using trimmed hull surfaces When the length of the non-buoyant volume, relative to the length of the model, is large enough; the non-buoyant volume can be calculated accurately from the hull sections. If possible, trimmed surfaces should be used. The picture below is a good example of when to use trimmed surfaces.

Propeller tunnels modelled with trimming surfaces

Using tank type: Non-buoyant volume In some cases using trimmed surfaces is just not possible. For example, when the sections of the non-buoyant volume are entirely enclosed within the hull sections (as is the case for a water jet duct) the use of a non-buoyant volume is the only way in which these features can be modelled.

Water-jet ducts modelled as non-buoyant volumes

Page 56

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Another occasion when non-buoyant volumes should be used, is when the length of the compartment relative to the length of the hull is too small to calculate its volume from the hull sections. A good example of this is a bow thruster on a long ship. If the vessel is very long, and the thruster duct is of small diameter, there may not be sufficient sections to model it accurately (even if you use the maximum of 200 sections for the Hydromax model). In this case you are better off modelling the thruster duct as internal structure and using these surfaces to define a non-buoyant volume. For example: in the image below the bow thruster volume is only calculated with one section.

For more information, see Number of Sections in Tanks on page 67. Tip: Besides increasing the number of sections through the bow thruster from 1 to 12, modelling the thruster duct as a non-buoyant volume has the additional advantage of being able to specify a Tank and Compartment Permeability, and hence also account for the thruster.

Bow thruster tube modelled as two non-buoyant volumes Tanks within Compartments

When a tank is defined within a compartment, Hydromax will automatically deduct the volume of the tank from the compartment volume using a “linked neg. (negative) compartment”. This is necessary for damage cases where the compartment is flooded and the volume of the tank should be treated completely separately from the compartment. Linked negative compartments are deleted and recreated whenever a tank or compartment is added, deleted or modified. Negatively linked compartments are displayed on the bottom of the Compartment Definition table solely for reference purposes and are not under direct user control. This means that linked negative compartments cannot be added, deleted or modified.

Page 57

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Linked negative compartments are named based on both the parent compartment as well as the tank from which the linked negative compartment was derived. For example a linked negative compartment might be named “Compartment3 (Stbd Hydr Oil)” to reflect that it is derived from the intersection of Compartment3 with the Stbd Hydr Oil tank.

Tanks Overlapping

As mentioned earlier in this manual, only compartments and non buoyant volumes or tanks can overlap with each other. Tanks or compartments of the same type (eg two tanks) can not overlap. A tank and a non-buoyant volume are also not allowed to overlap. Hydromax will first try to form tank sections and then check whether these sections overlap tank sections of adjacent tanks. When two conflicting or overlapping tanks or compartments are detected during the forming process, you will receive an error message:

Notice that the compartment definition row number of the tank is given in brackets i.e. tank #8 intersects tank #3.

Troubleshooting Overlapping Tanks Sometimes the reason for the conflict can be quite simple: eg an overlapping boundary box. However, when you are modelling tanks using boundary surfaces, the surface boundaries act as a boundary between two adjacent tanks and the bounding box extents are allowed to overlap. In these cases, it can be quite difficult to see why the tanks overlap, especially if you have a large number of tanks already defined.

By temporarily deleting all tanks except for the one that does not form, it often becomes clear why the tank overlaps. In the case of the image above, the tank‟s fwd most section goes all the way to the CL (probably because the fwd boundary box extent is just fwd of the boundary surfaces or exactly on the edge of a boundary surface). This causes this particular tank to “overlap” with surrounding tanks.

and the other when it is damaged. compartments typically have structure (other than plate stiffeners) and equipment inside.. 60% and the upper compartment a permeability of 95%. for example. the permeability fraction is also applied to the free-surface-moment contribution of that tank or compartment.

Tank and Compartment Permeability

For example an engine room with engines and auxiliaries at the tanktop could be divided up in a lower. inspect tank sections Try to fix tank definition. In case of large variations in permeability within a compartment it is recommended to model separate linked compartments with separate permeability to increase accuracy. the engines and equipment could also be modelled individually as empty tanks. Compartments and non-buoyant volumes have only one permeability. thought it is listed in both columns. Depending on the level of accuracy required.
Now that you know how to fix it. The lower compartment will have a permeability of. In the case of damaged tanks and compartments.and an upper engine room compartment. which is used when the tank is intact.

so it is normally only necessary to type the first few letter of the name). all entries for that fluid in the compartment definition are automatically updated. the tanks. If the tank defines a cargo tank that will carry different liquid cargoes. hence you should design these surfaces to the inside of the tank. If a fluid type is entered. the default density specified here in the compartment definition may be overridden in the loadcases. it is often useful to check individual tanks. the relative density value is obtained from the value specified in the Density dialog. either as the name or as one of the single letter codes (when entering the name. turn off the display of intact tanks and compartments.

Select whether you want to see the tank outline or the tank sections (tanks sections are preferable when checking that tanks have been formed correctly since it is these sections which are used to determine the tank volume and other properties). Use this to quickly turn tanks on and off by changing their damage status.
You can make the damage case window quite small and tile it next to the perspective view.

Forming Compartments
Tanks and compartments are formed automatically by Hydromax (once the tank extents and any boundary surfaces have been defined) by selecting Recalculate Tanks and Compartments from the Analysis menu. followed by the tank section insertion process.
Hydromax uses three input items to form the compartment
Boundary surfaces (if defined) Boundary box Hydromax Hull sections
Starting position The starboard tank margin plate is modelled using an Internal Structure surface from Maxsurf. Understanding these processes may assist you in rare situations where the tank forming does not work as expected. First a step-by-step outline of the tank forming process is given. This section describes the internal tank-forming process that Hydromax uses to form tanks.
Starting point: Hydromax Hull sections with an internal surface and a bounding box
Also see: Modelling Tanks Using Boundary Surfaces on page 54 and the Maxsurf manual on internal structure surfaces
Page 62
.
Step-by-Step Tank Forming Process
As an example. The water ballast tanks have a margin plate on the side.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Step 1: Close Internal Structure Surface
Hydromax will close the Internal Structure Surface contour by drawing a straight line between the ends of the opening. The area inside the selected surfaces will define the tank contour. The tank or compartment looks like this at this stage:
Page 63
. or There is no more than one opening – the opening will be closed with a straight line
Note: Hydromax will close the section contour of the selected boundary surfaces only.
Hydromax uses the same method for forming the tank section from the boundary surfaces as for forming the hydrostatic sections through the hull. the surfaces selected to form the tank boundary must form closed section contours at all longitudinal positions through the tank. As with the hull sections. Step 2: Clip to Boundary Surface Using the closed surface section contour Hydromax can now form a closed compartment section. Another common cause of unexpected results is trimming. If you selected “use trimmed surfaces” while opening the Maxsurf model. Make sure that the boundary surfaces:
Form a closed section contour. Hydromax will use the trimmed internal structure surface. Usually the internal structure surfaces are best to be left untrimmed. Often a tank is not formed as expected because only one side of the internal structure surface was selected for example the portside (p).

The boundary box is formed from the numerical input in the Compartment definition table. In this example the vessel has both wing and double bottom tanks with non-rectangular cross-sections thus requiring them to be defined by boundary surfaces – see blow:
Page 64
.
More realistic surface-bounded tanks
Whilst the above example shows the principles by which surface-bounded tanks are formed.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Step 3: Clip to Hull Hydromax will clip the compartment section to the hull. it is not really realistic because it would not be possible to define a tank above the surface-bounded double bottom tanks. A more realistic example is shown in the following section.
Step 4: Clip to Boundary Box Finally the compartment section is clipped to the boundary box. In practice additional surfaces would be required.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Thus it is important to have a sufficiently large number of sections to accurately model the tank. Also see Longitudinal Extents of Boundary Box on page 67
Longitudinal Extents of Boundary Box
For tanks near the ship‟s extremities it is good practise to set the “Fore” and “Aft” limits in the compartment table to just inside the hull surface (say 1mm). If this results in a section spacing greater than the spacing for the hull spacing.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Surfaces for double bottom tanks
Surfaces for wing tanks (top is closed automatically)
Number of Sections in Tanks
The volume of a tank or compartments is calculated by integrating section properties along the length of the tank. The following example illustrates why:
Page 67
. In most cases. Hydromax will normally place twelve sections between the forward and aft limits defining the tank. additional sections will be inserted into the tank so that the tank section spacing match the hull section spacing. this will be done automatically by Hydromax.

they should be set to just inside the extents of the hull surfaces to ensure that at least 12 sections are used to calculate the tank volumes.

. Also see Number of Sections in Tanks on page 67 Forming Compartments on page 62
Compartment Types
Five compartment types can be created using the Compartment Definition table . For internal structure surfaces that are used as boundary surface. Note that transversely and vertically there are no such restrictions. linked tanks. the longitudinal extents should not be set to extreme values. linked compartments and non-buoyant volumes.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
If the boundary box is set like this:
The number of hull sections is dependent on the section spacing in the model. compartments.tanks. This ensures that at least 12 sections are inserted in the tank.
But if the boundary box is set just inside the forward limit of the bulbous bow:
To recap – Near the ship‟s extremities. Hydromax will automatically set the “Fore” and “Aft” limits of the boundary box to just within the longitudinal limits of the boundary surface.

Compartments Are only used to specify compartmentation for damage. In addition. This will automatically set the tank/compartment to the correct type. you need to use the Sounding Pipes table in the Input window.g. To change the type of a tank. This allows you to damage a complex compartment configuration by linking compartments together and damaging the parent compartment.

Linked Tanks Will have their volume added to the parent tank with the same tank name. or Analysis | Update Loadcase. The default sounding pipe is placed at the longitudinal and transverse position of the lowest point of the tank. In this case the tank linking simulates tanks with cross connections. The top of the sounding pipe is taken to be level with the highest point of the tank and the default sounding pipe is assumed to be straight and vertical. Hydromax creates a default sounding pipe when the tank is formed (either by running an analysis. type the first character of the tank type (t. any changes to the sounding pipe due to tank geometry changes will also have to be made manually.

Calibration Increment
Hydromax allows user definable increments (or: intervals) for tank soundings. Hydromax uses its default value based on a reasonable division of the depth of the tank. Unwanted vertices can be deleted by clicking on the relevant row in the table and selecting Edit | Delete or by hitting the Delete key. A new row will be added to the sounding pipe and the longitudinal position. This is done by specifying a numerical value for the increment for each tank in the Calibration Spacing column of the Sounding Pipes Input window. offset and height of the vertex can be edited. make the sounding pipe type User Defined. To add vertices to create a bent sounding pipe. by clicking on the tabs at the bottom of the Input window. then click on the first row of a particular sounding pipe and choose Edit | Add or use the Ctrl+A key combination. it is not acceptable to have S-bends in the sounding pipes.

Modulus Points and Allowable Shears and Moments
The Modulus window can be used to enter maximum allowable shear forces and bending moments for each section. Hydromax automatically calculates the position of the margin line 76mm below the deck edge when the hull is first read in. Allowable shear force and/or bending moment can be specified at each point. It is only necessary to modify the height value of the margin line points. The modulus value is not currently used as deflections are not calculated. This form of automatic flooding is not supported in Hydromax yet. immersion angles or freeboards (depending on the analysis) are also given for the margin line and deck edge. One or more points can be entered in this window. If necessary. In the Name column the longitudinal position where immersion first takes place (or the lowest freeboard) is given. the points on the margin line may be edited manually in the Margin Line Points window (the deck edge is automatically updated so that it is kept 76mm above the margin line). Note: Linking a downflooding point to a tank does not mean that Hydromax will consider a tank damaged when the downflooding point is submerged.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Equilibrium Animation in Waves If performed in conjunction with analysis in waves, the Equilibrium analysis will automatically phase-step the waveform through a complete wavelength. This gives ten columns of results, one for each position of the wave crest. If necessary the results of this phase stepping can be animated giving a simple, quasi-static simulation of the hull motion in waves (Display | Animate). Note: This simulation only includes static behaviour at each wave phase, and does not cover dynamic or inertial forces. This can be done using Seakeeper.

Equilibrium Concept

The definition of equilibrium is “Position or state where object will remain if undisturbed”. You can distinguish equilibrium into two types:

Stable, when disturbed the object will return to its equilibrium position Unstable, when disturbed the object will not return to its equilibrium position

Stable equilibrium

Unstable equilibrium

With ships, an unstable equilibrium can exist when the KG > KM, i.e. the centre of gravity is above the metacentre (negative GMt). In real world a ship in unstable equilibrium will roll from the upright unstable equilibrium position to a position of stable equilibrium and assume an “angle of loll”. Since Hydromax starts the equilibrium analysis in upright position, it has no way of determining whether the equilibrium is stable or unstable. This means that unstable equilibrium may be found instead of the stable equilibrium. Therefore it is recommend to check the value of GMt yourself after doing an equilibrium analysis or perform a Large Angle Stability analysis and look at the slope of the GZ curve through the equilibrium heel angle.

Page 89

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Unstable equilibrium

Stable equilibrium ”Angle of loll”

The graph above shows the results of a Large Angle Stability analysis for a vessel with negative initial GMt. In practice this vessel would have a loll angle of approximately 25 degrees. If an equilibrium analysis is performed for this vessel with the transverse arm set to zero, Hydromax will find the unstable equilibrium position with zero degrees of heel. In practice, it is desirable to find the stable equilibrium position. To do this, first ensure that the tolerances (Edit | Preferences) are set as sensitive as possible. This will ensure that the smallest possible heeling moment is required to find stable equilibrium position. Then create a very small heeling moment by offsetting one of the weight items in the loadcase window TCG by just a fraction. The equilibrium analysis will now find the stable equilibrium position. Note: It is good practice to always perform a Large Angle Stability analysis as well as the equilibrium analysis to check if the vessel is in stable or unstable equilibrium. This is most likely to occur if the VCG is too high and the vessel has negative GM when upright. The problem can be overcome by offsetting the weight of the vessel transversely by a small amount.

Specified Conditions

Specified Condition analysis lets you determine the hydrostatic parameters of the vessel by specifying the heel, trim and immersion. Heel can be specified by either the angle of heel or the TCG and VCG. Trim can be specified by the actual trim measurement, or the LCG and VCG. Immersion can be specified by either the displacement or the draft.

Choosing Specified Conditions

Also see: Setting the Frame of Reference on page 18 Specified Conditions on page 145 in the Analysis Settings section. Note: If the fluid simulation has been turned on in a previous analysis mode, then the VCG obtained from the loadcase will not include the free surface correction; the “Get Loadcase Values” button will return exactly the displacement and CG as displayed in the current loadcase window.

. the accuracy of the KN calculations (for VCGs in the vicinity of the estimated VCG) may be improved by calculating the GZ curve using the estimated VCG position – this will reduce the error in the trim balance due to the vertical separation of CG and CB because this vertical separation is specified more accurately than simply assuming the VCG at the baseline. If a VCG estimate is specified.

Where these values are explicit in the criterion‟s definition in Hydromax. However. Some criteria may depend on the vessel displacement and or vessel‟s VCG. Hydromax will move on to the next displacement. For example in the case where the heeling moment. problems can arise if the criterion is only available in its generic form – most commonly heeling arm criteria where the heeling arm is specified simply as a lever and not as a moment. the heeling arm will remain constant for all displacements (where it is perhaps desired that the heeling arm should vary with displacement. Hydromax will raise the KG value and try to make the criteria fail. If any of the criteria fail. Hydromax will lower the KG and try again. rather than the heeling arm is constant).

If this tolerance is not achieved in a certain number of iterations. If the criteria pass. the correct values of displacement and VCG will be used in the evaluation of these criteria.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
After a Limiting KG analysis has completed. Hydromax will continue doing this until the limiting KG value has been iterated to within 0. Important: For important information on varying displacement while evaluating criteria see Important note: heeling arm criteria dependent on displacement on page 240. the results in the Criteria results table display “Not Analysed”. In this case.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
When performing a Limiting KG analysis. TCG and KG will also be for the intact vessel. Hydromax assumes that damaged tanks lose all liquid cargo or ballast that they may have been carrying and their buoyancy is lost from the vessel – analysis is done by the lost buoyancy method rather than the added mass method. In this case. (Although seawater enters these damaged areas. Note that we are only concerned about the tanks that will be damaged and that initially contain cargo or ballast.
Page 98
. This is because under most circumstances.e. i. The second method was available in older versions of Hydromax and it is the first method that provides the additional functionality: 1. This is used to compute required TCG. If this method is selected Hydromax will look at the mass and CG of cargo or ballast in tanks which will be damaged during the analysis. 2. Hydromax assumes that raising the VCG will make criteria more likely to fail and that reducing the VCG will make the criteria more likely to pass. However. This is because to perform a sensible search. which must therefore be offset. this should be zero). Current loadcase specifies initial loading of damaged tanks: This means that the currently selected Loadcase will be used to define the volume of cargo or ballast in tanks before damage is applied. the intact vessel is upright (zero heel). this is because when they are damaged the ballast or cargo is assumed to be totally lost from the vessel. This is not necessarily the case for equilibrium-based criteria such as freeboard requirements or for GZ-based criteria such as Angle of maximum GZ. Hydromax must have at least one criterion that will improve by reducing the VCG. Note that all results and input data will be assumed to be for the intact vessel. Hydromax will evaluate any equilibriumbased criteria that are selected for testing and act accordingly. if only these types of criteria are selected. it is often required to specify a required TCG. If the vessel has an off-centre intact TCG. For Limiting KG calculations for a damaged vessel where some of the damaged tanks were initially non-empty. The second option is for the used to specify the required TCG directly.
Example calculations
It is probably simplest to explain this functionality by means of an example. at least one GZbased criterion must also be selected. Hydromax may have difficulty in finding a true limiting KG and specify convergence errors. however the specified displacement and CG corresponds to that of the intact vessel with damaged tanks empty. That is the specified displacement will be that of the intact vessel and that the resulting LCG. The tanks would generally provide a transverse moment that must be balanced by the mass of the vessel. this is not seen as an additional mass because damage is computed by the lost buoyancy method.
Limiting KG for damage conditions with initially loaded tanks
The set up of the Limiting KG analysis parameters has been modified to facilitate setting up the required TCG when calculating the Limiting KG for a damaged vessel where liquid cargo tanks initially carrying cargo or ballast water are damaged. the mass and CG of the intact vessel after deducting the masses of cargo or ballast in any tanks that will be damaged. this can be specified below (if the vessel is symmetrical and initially upright. This functionality has been in Hydromax for many years.) Two methods of specifying the required TCG are possible.

Initial tank loadings
First we need to define how much cargo is in the tanks that will be damaged.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
The following sample calculations demonstrate how the new Limiting KG options may be used. but with an initial vessel trim of 0. We wish to find the maximum VCG that the intact vessel may have in order to pass the selected stability criteria. This is done by defining a loadcase and switching to the intact mode to specify the tank filling levels. A vessel with a port-side tank that are initially full will have this tank damaged. In this case we shall use free to trim.25m by the stern.
Use a loadcase to specify the initial quantities of fluids in tanks Setting the Displacements
Secondly we need to define the displacement range we wish to calculate the Limiting KG for. This is done in the Displacements dialog:
Displacement dialog Setting the Trim options
We now need to specify the trim options we wish to use. Here we have specified that the tank is 80% full before the damage is applied. Importantly we shall also specify that the current loadcase should be used to determine the required TCG and because the vessel is symmetrical. the specified TCG is zero:
Page 99
.

In this case large port-side tanks are to be damaged. We also need to determine which way we should heel the vessel and in doubt should try heeling the vessel in both directions to see which will give the worst result. In this case the baseline (K) is at – 356. It must be remembered that these are KG results not VCG so when checking the VCG must be calculated.845mm

We now need to select the damage case to be evaluated. these are filled significantly above the waterline so loss of ballast from these tanks will cause a list to Starboard. so the analysis should be done in this direction.

These are used to specify the longitudinal extents of the load. A trapezium shaped distributed load is derived from the centre and fore and aft extents of the load. The speed of the analysis can be increased quite considerably by increasing the allowable tolerances in the Edit | Preferences dialog. it is recommended that a minimum of 100 sections be used for most situations. two extra columns appear in the Loadcase window.

Probabilistic damage – Principles
Essentially the probabilistic damage analysis performs a number of large angle stability analyses and uses the IMO criterion to determine an s-factor that depends on certain parameters of the GZ curve. For each condition. The vessel‟s attained subdivision index is the sum of the products of the pfactors with their corresponding s-factors. The attained subdivision index can then be compared with a required subdivision index to see if the vessel achieves a sufficiently high degree of safety. This is then compared with the required index. the p-factors Damage window | p Factors table are automatically calculated and displayed as the zone data is modified. A first pass at this can be automatically generated using the Case | Extent of damage command. When the Zones have been defined the user can then define which tanks are damaged in each zone in the Damage window | Zone damage table.
Maxsurf model is loaded as normal User defines (first selecting File | New to open the Probabilistic damage data table) other ship data required for the probabilistic damage analysis in the Damage window | Global table. Hydromax runs a large angle stability analysis for each combination of loadcase and damage and collates the results to calculate the attained index. The GZ curves are calculated for a large number of different damage conditions and several load cases.
During the analysis each GZ curve and details on the evaluation of the s-factor may be saved in a log file. a p-factor can be calculated. The user can then perform the probabilistic damage analysis. User defines the damage zones they wish to consider in the Damage window | Zones table Once 2 and 3 have been completed. The log file parameters may be specified in the Edit | Preferences dialog:
Page 116
. It is useful to have this interaction because if the p Factor is too large for a particular zone. the user may decide to refine the zone arrangement.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Selecting Probabilistic Damage anlysis mode

Once you have selected the probabilistic damage analysis mode, you can define the heel angle range and trim settings to be used as well as any environmental parameters such as waveform (as well as the fluid analysis method to be used). During probabilistic damage analysis, it is possible to check the vessel heeling to both port and starboard. This is useful if the tanks contain ballast or cargo and it is uncertain in which direction the vessel will list when damaged (or indeed the vessel may list to different directions depending on the loadcase and damage). Hydromax will calculate the GZ curve in both directions and, if the criteria can be evaluated in both directions, the lowest s-factor will be taken. If the criteria can only be evaluated in one direction, then this value for the s-factor will be taken. It is recommended to evaluate at least one negative heel angle and the direction of heel should correspond to the side of the vessel that is being damaged (see below):

Page 119

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Heel angle specification (as per Large Angle Stability)

Use either fixed trim or free to trim to loadcase. s-factor calculation

The s-factors are calculated by stability criteria. The Probailistic damage analysis has its own set of criteria (though the same parent criteria are also available in the large angle stability analysis criteria). When the analysis mode has been set to Proababilistic Damage, you will see the criteria that are used for this analysis. The number of parent criteria is reduced to only those which can calculate the s-factor. Also some “Default” criteria are supplied, you can add or modify these should you so desire. When running the analysis, Hydromax will look at the probabilistic criteria that have been selected and warn you if there are any problems.

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Probabilistic Damage Criteria Manager with Parent and Default criteria

**The following rules should be observed when defining the probabilistic damage criteria:
**

As with the normal criteria manager, changes made to the parent (bold) criteria are not saved. If you need to modify any of the criteria you should make your own copies of the parent criteria A set of Default criteria are provided – these can be modified and changes will be saved. Only one criterion should be selected and it should correspond to the IMO Resolution being used. (Strictly, you may have up to one of each MSC.216(82) or MSC.19(58) criteria selected and Hydromax will automatically use the appropriate one – according to the selected Resolution in the Global sheet – but for clarity, it is probably best practive to just have a single criterion selected.) The criteria should always be selected for Damage analysis. Hydromax will automatically update some of the criteria parameters according to corresponding parameters in the probabilistic damage setup. However it is still good practice to review criteria parameters before starting the analysis. This is particularly true for the MSC.216(82) Resolution where the vessel type and heeling moments must be defined correctly. The criteria window can be closed with either of the close buttons.

For further information on how the s-factors are calculated and the different parameters, please refer to the Criteria Help section for the appropriate criteria (and heeling arms).

The last column shows whether a particular condition will be tested (if the p-factor is sufficiently large and the maximum number of adjacent zones is not exceeded). the probability of damaging a longitudinal zone or group of adjacent zones is calculated as well as the cumulative probability. The columns displayed depends on the choice of Resolution: MSC.216(82) or MSC. This will help the user to determine the maximum number of adjacent zones that should be analysed.

. This is because where the side-shell or bulkhead is not parallel to the centerline. but also for groups of adjacent zones. the zone will be damaged up to (but not across) the centreline. there is a special way of calculating the b-value and this needs to be done for each set of adjacent zones. The side-shell offset value defaults to the maximum halfbeam of the vessel. the inner limit being at a distance side-shell offset minus b from the centreline. it is also possible to define sub-zones due to longitudinal bulkheads (transverse subdivision) and decks (vertical subdivision). The sum of all r-factors should be unity (a check is provided). Note that there is one extra r-factor than the number of bulkheads – this represents the probability of damaging to the centerline.

For an equilibrium analysis all degrees of freedom are derived from the centre of gravity and Displacement. Heel and Draft. The various analysis types and settings can be thought of as setting one variable in each pair to a fixed value and deriving the others from the analysis. In the Specified Condition Analysis any combination of the variable pairs may be specified.
Heel
The Heel dialog from the analysis menu is used to specify the range of heel angles to be used for Large Angle Stability. In hydrostatic analysis. Hydromax matches the trim.
Page 141
. Heel angles between 180 and +180 may be specified. because vertical centre of gravity is also important and also because most of the variables are coupled. The heel steps must be positive. For example: it can match a specified heel. If only one set of steps is required. simply put 0 in the other steps. This section will describe the following analysis settings:
Heel Trim Draft Displacement Specified Conditions Permeability
Hydromax will allow specification of only those analysis settings that apply to the currently selected analysis type. trim and draft by varying the displacement and centre of gravity. This way the volume of the displaced hull matches the required mass and the centres of gravity and buoyancy lie one above the other in a vertical line. The following table is a very simplified representation of the degrees of freedom and their weight counterpart: Degree of Freedom Draft Trim Heel Weight Displacement Longitudinal Centre of Gravity (LCG) Transverse Centre of Gravity (TCG)

In fact it is a rather more complicated situation than that suggested by the table above. or it can match a specified displacement and centre of gravity by varying the heel. Combinations of both are also possible. trim and draft. KN and Limiting KG analyses. heel and draft with the vessel‟s mass and centre of gravity or visa versa. For example: the Upright Hydrostatics analysis consists of fixing heel and trim and stepping through a series of fixed drafts. there are three degrees of freedom: Trim. In this case the LCB and TCB (and therefore the required LCG and TCG) are calculated from the underwater hullshape at each draft.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

This is to allow roll back angle criteria to be evaluated correctly. key points. it is advisable to test at least one negative heel angle. This can be a source of apparent differences in the results from the different analyses. then the analysis should be carried out for both heel to starboard and heel to port to find the most pessimistic condition. It is possible that the GZ at zero heel may be very slightly positive (due to asymmetry or rounding error) for this reason.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
If there is any asymmetry in the vessel due to either: hull shape. the trim may be specified in the Specified Conditions dialog. It is good practise to start the heel range at an angle of approximately -30°.

This is for when a range of displacements is used for the analysis: Limiting KG. Free to trim to loadcase – the analysis trims the vessel to the CG specified in the loadcase. all three components of the CG need to be know. Limiting KG.
Fixed trim (KN and Limiting KG analyses only). this analysis will tend to overestimate ship stability properties such as GZ. Thus. This option is available for all analyses that have a loadcase: Large Angle Stability. This applies to all analyses that carry out a large angle stability-type analysis (Large Angle Stability. Calculations at each heel angle of the large angle stability analysis are then done free-to-trim using the derived LCG and VCG. The analysis is carried out with the specified fixed trim. for each displacement.

. Also. because the analysis is very sensitive to trim. The TCG can be either specified directly or calculated from the tank loadings defined in the current loadcase.
Current Loadcase specifies initial loading of damaged tanks (los mass during analysis)
Finally. measured from the vertical zero datum (not necessarily KG). but the upright vessel trim will be different. Thus. For Floodable Length calculations. a specified constant LCG is maintained for each displacement. This is for consistency with the lost buoyancy analysis method: the buoyancy contribution of damaged tanks is removed from the model. This LCG is then used to compute the free-to-trim vessel orientation at each heel angle as the large angle stability analysis is performed.
Draft

For KN analysis. for the Limiting KG analysis. VCG for trim balance The VCG. any liquid cargo should also be removed from the model.

This problem can sometimes occur if the specified displacement is extremely small and the vessel has a large flat bottom. All analyses other than Floodable Length will fail if the trim exceeds +/-45º. Other causes of non-convergence can be non-linear moment to trim vs. If Hydromax fails to converge it will give you a warning. draft plot. Note: There are occasions when convergence will not necessarily occur within the maximum allowable number of iterations. trim angle curve or moment to heel vs. If you choose to continue. you can interrupt Hydromax by pausing the analysis. The analysis will also fail to converge if the trim becomes excessive. Hydromax will search for the equilibrium position indefinitely.

It is possible to specify the range of filling levels for which free surface moments should be applied in the loadcase. the FSM is applied if the filling level is within the exclusive range specified.3. The upper limit is clearly stated by IMO as 98%. i. (see IMO IS Code) 3.e.
In addition it is possible to ignore the free surface moment if the VCG correction for a single tank.10 The usual remainder of liquids in empty tanks need not be taken into account in calculating the corrections. This requires that a nominal minimum displacement be specified. (see IMO IS Code)

Hydromax allows you to specify two different ways of simulating any fluids contained in tanks or compartments. the free surface moment will be zero. but the code provides some flexibility in interpretation for the lower limit. Free surface effects need not be considered where a tank is nominally full . provided that the total of such residual liquids does not constitute a significant free surface effect. This functionality is accessed through the Analysis | Fluids dialog:

If the corrected the VCG method is used. This is applicable to the “IMO” free surface moment type only. Selecting Fluids in the Analysis menu opens the Fluids Analysis dialog.2 Free surface effects should be considered whenever the filling level in a tank is less than 98% of full condition.3.
3. if the filling level is less than or equal to the lower limit or the filling level is greater than or equal to the upper limit. filling level is 98% or above. You may set different limits for each of the different free surface moment types other than “User Specified”.

This is because the actual free surface moment to be used to determine the VCG in a loadcase depends on the method being used and also the heel angle in question (in the case of the IMO correction).
Fluid analysis method: Use corrected VCG
Tank capacities and free surface moments are calculated for the upright hull (zero trim and zero heel). The effective rise in VCG due to the tanks' free surface is calculated by summing the free surface moment of all the tanks and dividing by the total vessel displacement (the free surface moment to be applied is specified in the loadcase).3.9 Small tanks which satisfy the following condition using the values of "k" corresponding to an angle of inclination of 30°. if required.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Note: Tank Calibration results In the tank calibration results the free-surface moment based on the transverse second moment of area of the tank waterplane is given for all filling levels. There are several FSM types available. For more information. This method should be used when compiling a stability booklet for a design. Although the computational potential is available.

Grounding
Grounding is an additional analysis environment option for the Equilibrium or Longitudinal Strength analysis. with a wavelength equal to the waterline length. GMt and GMl are all calculated to the effective centre of gravity.

It is possible to specify grounding on one or two points of variable length. a phase offset of 0. whilst GMt and GMl are the actual vertical separation of the metacentres above the centre of gravity in the trimmed reference frame normal to the sea surface. this will be reflected in the results: The displacement column will show the total grounding reaction force in brackets. both of which correspond to a wave crest at the forward end of the DWL. For example. the wave height may be modified.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Once a wavelength has been set. as a proportion of the wavelength. If the vessel touches one or both grounding points. Remember that KG is measured in the upright vessel reference frame (normal to the baseline). Damage can be specified concurrently with grounding. The phase offset varies between 0 and 1. the sum of the buoyancy and the grounding reactions equals the loadcase displacement.
The effective centre of gravity will be modified by the grounding reactions – a mass is effectively being removed from the vessel.

The vessel is considered to pivot at the centre of the grounding point. the vessel will not be balanced in heel and the vessel will remain upright (zero heel) even if the transverse metacentric height is less than zero. For more information see Chapter 4 Stability Criteria starting at page 163.e. The length of the grounding points is only used when considering the load distribution for Longitudinal Strength analysis and not to determine the pivot point. the second grounding point is the aft grounding point.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Note: Grounding points are considered to span the transverse extents of the hull and therefore constrain the heel to zero.

Criteria Concepts
Hydromax includes a wide range of template criteria (or: parent criteria) as well as predefined custom criteria such as IMO. This section also explains how all criteria can be divided up into two different criteria types: equilibrium and GZ curve based. only the applicable criteria are added to the report (although all are displayed in the Results table). Criteria results are added to the Report after a Large Angle Stability or Equilibrium analysis.Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
This chapter describes how stability criteria are used in Hydromax. Users may save. This makes it quick and easy to set which criteria should be included for analysis and to change criteria parameters.

Page 164
. Those heeling moment are then used in a number of different criteria. The Hydromax criteria list contains Parent Heeling Arms that can be copied into a custom criteria folder and then cross-referenced into the stability criteria.
Parent calculations in Hydromax Criteria dialog
Parent Heeling Arms In most cases a ship is subject to specific heeling moments.

Another benefit is that. they are displayed in bold text in the Criteria list. Also the parent criteria settings cannot be saved. This is explained in the section on Working with Criteria on page 168. it is only displayed once in the GZ graph and not duplicated for each criterion that uses it. Predefined Custom Criteria A number of criteria files containing criteria for specific codes are supplied with Hydromax. delete or add criteria to the Parent Criteria group. these are the fundamental criteria from which criteria for specific codes are derived.
Page 165
.Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
The advantage of using cross-referenced Heeling Arms is that a heeling arm is now defined (and edited) in only one place. those that are not locked require your ship design data to be input. To distinguish the Parent criteria from your derived criteria. Custom Criteria You can create your own set of criteria in the tree as well. Furthermore some newer heeling arm criteria are only available for cross-referenced heeling arms and a greater variety of heeling arm definitions are available through cross-referencing. Parent Criteria The Parent Criteria group contains all the parent criteria types that are available in Hydromax. Parent criteria are special in that you cannot rename. Each parent criterion allows you to perform a specific calculation. since the heeling arm is defined in one place. Most specific criteria are locked. This is done by dragging the required parent criteria in to the “My custom criteria” group or any other group you create. they will always revert to their default values when Hydromax is restarted. This is because the parent criteria are intended for use as templates from which you can derive your own custom criteria. These may be found in the “HMSpecificCriteria” folder. This ensures that all criteria which use a specific heeling arm use exactly the same heeling arm. Also see Working with Criteria Libraries on page 172 Appendix D: Specific Criteriaon page 291. This folder can be found in the Maxsurf root directory: c:\program files\Maxsurf.

GZ area criterion GZ criterion with heeling arm GZ area criterion with heeling arm GZ criterion with several heeling arms and their combinations GZ area criterion with several heeling arms and their combinations Combined GZ criterion. This type of criterion is also used by the Floodable Length analysis. These criteria are often referred to as Large Angle Stability (LAS) or GZ criteria. This can be measured from the GZ curve by looking for an up-crossing of the GZ=0 axis. in some criteria sets some criteria are included twice. area under GZ curve between specified limits. This is because it is only this type of criteria that is more likely to pass as VCG is reduced. These icons are derived from the parent criterion type. These criteria make measurements from the GZ curved obtained from a Large Angle Stability analysis. but they cannot be included directly in the search algorithm. A check is also made to ensure that any selected Equilibrium criteria are passed. e. it must be a LAS criterion.Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
Types of criteria
There are two fundamental types of criteria: Equilibrium criteria Equilibrium criteria are evaluated after an Equilibrium analysis and refer only to the condition of the vessel in its equilibrium state For example: margin line immersion tests. Weather criterion. These criteria are evaluated only after an equilibrium analysis has been performed. angle of maximum GZ. See next: Criteria Procedures

Criteria Procedures
This section describes how to work with the stability criteria dialog.

Working with Criteria
In the Concepts section it was explained how the criteria are listed in a tree list. The criteria command will bring up the Floodable Length Criteria dialog when the Floodable Length analysis is selected. the dialog size can be reset by holding down the “Shift” key when you open the dialog.
Page 168
.
Resizing the Criteria dialog
The dialog may be resized and a vertical and horizontal slider can be used to resize the width of the Criteria List and the height of the Criterion Details areas. Note that if.Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
The criteria dialog is shown below:
Note: The Floodable Length analysis uses its own set of criteria. This behaviour is the same as all other resizing dialogs. in the unlikely event that the dialog items vanish due to resizing the dialog. This section explains how to create and customise your own criteria from the Parent Heeling Arms and Criteria provided with Hydromax.

Click on the “-” sign to collapse the group (or double click on it).Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
Using the Criteria Tree List
The tree works in much the same way as the file folders in Windows Explorer:
Click on the “+” sign to expand the folder (or double click on it). If a criterion is locked. this prevents inadvertent editing of its parameters. Click on an item’s name or icon to select it Once selected. Lock: Toggle whether the criterion (or all criteria within the group) are locked. click again on the on the item’s name to edit its name

Include for Analysis: Toggle whether the criterion (or all criteria within the group) should be evaluated. Intact: Toggle whether the criterion (or all criteria within the group) should be evaluated for intact conditions.
Page 169
. Locking is used for criteria belonging to specific codes where the required values are fixed. Damage: Toggle whether the criterion (or all criteria within the group) should be evaluated for damaged conditions.

Note that if you drag a criterion from the Parent Criteria group a copy will be made and the original will not be deleted. Copy: Copy the criterion (or whole criterion group) to the clipboard. right-click on the group and choose Include for Analysis from the menu. all criteria that should be in a group of that name will end up in the first one and none in the second.
Moving Criteria
Criteria may be moved from one group to another by dragging them with the left-mousebutton or by using the cut and paste functions in the right-click context menu (see above). Cut: Cut the criterion (or whole criterion group) to the clipboard. If duplicate group names exit.
Defining new Custom Criteria and Groups
New custom criteria sets may be created by first creating a new criterion group and then dragging the desired criteria into the criterion group. Delete: Deletes the criterion or all the criteria and sub-groups within the group.
Copying criteria
You can use the Criteria Tree Right-click Context Menu to copy and paste criteria. This may then be pasted into another location in the tree.
Editing Criteria
The specific details for a criterion are displayed in the table in the top-right of the dialog:

Selecting the Criteria for Analysis
Criteria may be selected for analysis by ticking the tick box to the left of the criterion. Paste: Paste the criterion (or whole criterion group) from the clipboard to the selected location Rename: Renames the criterion or group. then clicking again in the label. you can hold down the CTRL-key while moving the criteria you will copy the criteria. By holding down the Ctrl button a copy of the criterion being dragged is created (unless it is a parent criterion. Other functions are available from a menu activated when the right button is clicked on your mouse. To select an entire group. This may also be done by selecting the label. Alternatively use the Copy and Paste functions from the right-click context menu (see above). This may then be pasted into another location in the tree. As criteria (and new groups) are loaded they are inserted into the first group that is found with a name that matches the name of the group to which the criterion should belong. It is extremely important to ensure that all criteria groups have unique names. in which case a copy will be made regardless of whether the Ctrl key is held down or not).

Check Boxes in Criteria Properties Section of Criteria Dialog
There is some subtly different behaviour for the check boxes in the dialog depending on their context. The parameters that may be adjusted have a white background.
In other cases. the check boxes act as radio buttons and only one may be selected. use the File | Save Criteria command to save a copy of your current criteria selection and data before making any changes in the Criteria dialog. Edit the parameters as required and then select the next criterion to be edited from the tree. where the items are mutually exclusive. with the “Value of GMt at” criterion:

In both of these cases the selection is cumulative and none of the selections are mutually exclusive.

If this file cannot be found. Intact criteria are only evaluated for the intact case and damage criteria are evaluated when a damage case has been selected (irrespective of whether there are actually any damaged compartments or tanks in the damage case). Criteria that are defined for both are always evaluated.Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
Finally a check box can be used to select whether a specific effect should be included. for example.hcr” from the directory in which the Hydromax program resides.
Default Criteria Library File
When starting. Hydromax allows you to make this distinction by selecting the required comparison from a combo-box in the criterion row of the details table:

Criteria may be defined as intact or damage stability criteria (or both). you will be prompted to locate a criteria file: You may select an alternative file or click the Cancel button to proceed and be given the default criteria.
Working with Criteria Libraries
It is possible to load and save the criteria. A third option which is not yet implemented is WOD (Water on deck) this checkbox has no effect.

Criterion Pass/Fail Test
There are some subtle differences between the wordings for different criteria. only the criteria that you create or import will be saved. Hydromax will try to open the default criteria library file called: “Hydromax Criteria Library. These options may either be set using the right-click menu or by ticking the appropriate boxes in the bottom of the dialog:

For example one criterion may state “Shall be greater than…”. By default this is c:\program files\Maxsurf\ Hydromax Criteria Library. whereas another may state “Shall not be less than…”.

See Saving Criteria below. This can be useful when you are defining new custom sets of criteria that you wish to keep separate or when defining criteria sets for different vessels. all criteria are still available. Note It is good practise to save the criteria file with the project in the project folder. If this does occur. You will then be asked if you wish to keep the existing criteria:
If you choose “Yes” your existing criteria will be kept. all existing criteria except the parent criteria will be removed and replaced by those in the file you are opening. That way. the imported criteria will be found in the original groups. not in the new groups. continue to be saved to the default criteria library file that was opened when Hydromax was first started. The default criteria library will be over-written with the new criteria so if you wish to keep any custom criteria that you may have added to your default criteria library. you must save them in a new file first. it is important to ensure that the group names in the file you are importing are not the same as those that already exist. Choose Save Criteria As from the File menu. These may be found in the “HMSpecificCriteria” folder. Note that when keeping your existing criteria.

Importing Criteria and Specific Criteria Files
New criteria may be added to your criteria list by importing them – choose Import Criteria from the File menu. A number of criteria containing criteria for specific codes are supplied with Hydromax.
Saving Criteria
It is also possible to save the criteria into a new file. however. either overwriting the existing one or creating a new one. This will simply export all the custom criteria (parent criteria are not saved) to the specified file. or Ctrl select to select multiple files in the Open Hydromax Criteria dialog. so if you want to save any further changes you will have to resave as described above. if you choose “No”. when at a later stage you need to re-analyse the project. Further updates will. You can import several criteria files in one go using Shift. updates will be saved in the default criteria library.

The equilibrium angle with a given heeling arm is the angle closest to zero where the GZ curve crosses the heel arm curve where the GZ-Heel Arm curve has positive slope. this often occurs if the vessel has a large watertight cabin. the GZ curve may have multiple peaks. The equilibrium angle is the angle closest to zero where the GZ curve crosses the GZ=0 axis with positive slope. The downflooding angle is the smallest positive angle at which a downflooding point becomes immersed. In some cases. The angle of vanishing stability with a given heeling arm is the smallest positive angle where the GZ curve crosses the heel arm curve and where the GZ-Heel Arm curve has negative slope. The angle of the first peak is the lowest positive angle at which a local maximum in the GZ curve occurs.Chapter 4 Stability Criteria

This chapter contains brief descriptions of the tools available in Hydromax:

Windows Toolbars Menus

Windows

Hydromax uses a range of graphical, tabular, graph and report windows.

View Window Loadcase Window Damage Window Input Window Results Window Graph Window Report Window

Assembly View and Property Sheet

An assembly view has been added to Hydromax, this makes it easier to control the visibility of individual tanks and surfaces. The Properties sheet can be used to change tank properties of the tank currently selected in the Assembly or design View.

View Window

The View window displays the hull, frame of reference, immersed sections of the hull and any compartments, and the centroids of gravity, buoyancy, and flotation. These positions are represented by: cb cg cf K centre of buoyancy centre of gravity centre of flotation location of keel (K) for KN during KN analysis

You can choose which type of view is displayed by selecting from the Window menu or the View toolbar. The Zoom, Shrink, Pan and Home View commands from the View menu may be used and work in exactly the same way as in Maxsurf. If a Perspective view is shown, you may also use the Pitch, Roll and Yaw indicators to change the angle of view. Please refer to the Maxsurf manual if you are unfamiliar with these functions. You may set the visibility of the various display elements by using the Visibility command from the Display menu. Two sets of visibility flags are maintained, one is used for all analyses other than tank calibration and the other is used for when the tank calibration analysis is selected.

Page 181

Chapter 5 Hydromax Reference

If a view window is visible when an analysis is being carried out, it will display the hull shape using the correct heel trim and immersion for the current step of the analysis. After an analysis, the Select View from Data command in the Display menu may be used to move the hull to a selected position from the Results window. The view of the tanks, compartments and non-buoyant volumes can be toggled between an outline view and a view of the sections.

Perspective view

In the perspective view, the model may be rendered.

The rendered view also enables tanks and compartments to be more easily visualised, especially when the hull shell is made transparent.

The rendering options are to be found in the Display menu, with further lighting options in the Render toolbar. Please refer to the Maxsurf manual for more information on the different rendering options available in perspective view.

Page 182

Chapter 5 Hydromax Reference

Note: Fastest performance will be achieved by reducing the amount of redrawing that is required from Hydromax. For this reason, it is best to turn off sections, and especially waterlines, when performing an analysis. You may then turn them on again after the analysis has completed. For fastest performance, e.g. when running in Batch mode, minimise the Hydromax window so that no redrawing occurs.

Loadcase Window

In the Loadcase window a spreadsheet table of all loads and tanks is displayed.

Using the tabs on the bottom of the window allow you to quickly browse through the different loadcases. Hydromax allows you to improve the presentation of the Load Case window by adding blank, heading or sub-total lines in the table. For more information see Working with Loadcases on page 38. The columns that are displayed may be selected using the Display | Data Format dialog.

Damage Window

The Damage window is used to specify which tanks and compartments are flooded in each damage case. There is always an Intact case, which cannot be edited, this is the default condition. If flooded volumes are required in the intact case they should be defined as non-buoyant volumes.

Input Window

The Input window contains tables where the additional Hydromax design data is entered. The tables in the Input window contain the:

Compartment Definition Sounding Pipes Key Points Margin Line Points Modulus Points Bulkhead locations

The input window contains tabs on the bottom that allow you to quickly browse through the different input tables.

Compartment Definition

This table can be used to define the tanks and compartments in the Hydromax models. For more information see Modelling Compartments on page 51 in the Analysis Input section.

Sounding Pipes

This table is used to define the tank sounding pipes and calibration intervals. Default values are provided but these may be edited if necessary.

Chapter 5 Hydromax Reference

Key Points

**There are several types of Key Points:
**

Down Flooding points Potential Down flooding points Embarkation points Immersion Points

**Only downflooding points are used in determining the downflooding angle, which is used in criteria evaluation.
**

Margin Line Points

The margin line is used in a number of the criteria. Hydromax automatically calculates the position of the margin line 76mm below the deck edge when the hull is first read in. If necessary, the points on the margin line may be edited manually in the Margin Line Points window (the deck edge is automatically updated so that it is kept 76mm above the margin line).

Modulus Points

This table is used to define the allowable limits for shear force and bending moment during the longitudinal strength calculations.

Bulkheads

See Floodable Length Bulkheads on page 77. Results Window

The Results window contains ten tables, one for each of the different analysis types plus criteria results and key points results tables. When switching mode, the currently selected results table will change to reflect the current analysis mode. Note that results are never invalidated if analysis options are modified – it is up to the user to ensure that the results are recalculated as necessary.

Setting the Data Format

It is possible to configure Hydromax so that only the results that you wish to see are displayed. To do this, choose Data Format from the Display menu.

Page 185

Data Layout
Most analysis data can be formatted vertically or horizontally to fit better on the screen or the printed page.

Thus if you require the area between two limits. Note that the picture is placed in the clipboard as a meta-file which can be resized in Word or Excel.
Page 190
. Also see: Copying Tables on page 158.
Copying Graphs
You can copy the contents of the Graph window using the Copy command or Ctrl+C.
Curve fitting for GZ graph
A curve fit will be performed if all the heel angle intervals are less than or equal to 10˚. Since the graph data contains more data points than most tables in the results window. a parametric cubic spline is used to fit a smooth curve through the calculated GZ data at the specified heel angles. you must subtract the area at the lower limit from the area at the higher limit. Especially in the case of the sectional area curve. If this is the case.Chapter 5 Hydromax Reference
Note The lower integration limit is always zero (irrespective of the equilibrium angle). This ensures that the fitted line goes exactly through the calculated GZ points.
Graph data
The graphed data can be obtained by double clicking on the graph. This can sometimes be useful if you expect a discontinuity in the GZ curve. where there is no tabular data available. add a heel angle interval of greater than 10˚ as the final step. The View | Font command allows you to change the text size and font size.

This window is used to create a progressive summary of the analyses that have been carried out.
Report Window
Hydromax contains a Report window. as well as a ruler showing you tab stops. Hydromax will split most results tables so they fit the specified page set up. so choosing a wide paper size will prevent all but the widest tables from being split). it is recommended that the report window be used only to accumulate the results. As the built-in report window only has basic editing and formatting functionality. their formatting will not be changed by changes to the print set up.). these should be saved and opened in a word processor such as Microsoft Word or Open Office for formatting:
set the results tables up as you want them to appear in the report (the report uses the same column widths. This report can be edited via Cut. fonts etc. Once all the results have been gathered in the report window. this will facilitate generating a table of contents and also allows you to re-format the various styles (or import a custom set of styles using the style organiser in Word). printed. indentation and margin widths. Underneath all of this you have your actual editing area. Hence it is often most convenient to select the desired report page set up before any analyses have been made.Chapter 5 Hydromax Reference
Note When the graph is pasted in Microsoft Word®. inserted tables will be automatically formatted to fit the current page set up. both Loadcase and Criteria results tables will not be split. Use the Format | Autoformat function in Word (with the default settings) to set the correct styles for the different levels of heading in the document. You can for example choose the landscape Page Setup prior to running an analysis to make the tables fit better. choose an appropriate paper size for the report (the tables will be split to fit this paper size.

there are two frames of reference: Ship or upright frame of reference The “ship” or “upright” reference frame is that of the upright vessel with zero-trim.
Measurement Reference Frames
Results in Hydromax are given from the vessel‟s zero point. static waterline and “vertical” measurements are perpendicular to the waterline
Rotated reference frame (red) and measurements in the two reference frames: Measurements in the upright vessel reference frame (green) and trimmed reference frame (blue)
When the vessel is upright (zero trim and zero heel) these axis systems are parallel. CP. However. because Hydromax treats trim exactly (the hull is rotated not sheared when trim occurs). etc. Here the baseline is horizontal and the perpendiculars are vertical.

Definition and calculation of form parameters
Below is a summary of the definitions of basic vessel particulars and form parameters used in Hydromax. World or trimmed frame of reference The “world” or “trimmed” reference frame is that of the trimmed vessel.Appendix A
Appendix A: Calculation of Form Parameters
This Appendix explains how the calculation of form parameters (CB.

It is for this reason that.Appendix A

The majority of measurements are given in the “ship” frame of reference. that are explicitly vertical. in generally for the vessel to be in equilibrium. GM.

. GM is the true vertical separation of the metacentre and the centre of gravity with the vessel inclined and are always measured normal to the water surface. Measurements such as BM. LCF. These include longitudinal centres of gravity. then there will be a sin(trim angle) term introduced. Thus the metacentre is always vertically (in the earth-fixed axis system) above the centre of buoyancy by a distance BM = I / vol where I is the second moment of area of the waterplane.e. LCG is not equal to LCB – if both LCB and LCG are measured in the ship-axis system (of course if they are measured in the earthfixed axis system then they are the same. in general. i. Similarly. This is because if the vessel is trimmed and if the VCG and VCB are not the same. floatation and buoyancy (LCG. LCB). The same is true of TCB and TCG if the vessel is heeled. and only if the vessel is upright are the axis systems parallel and hence the equation holds). KM is not equal to KB+BM (BM is in a different axis system to KB and KM. and measurements from the keel such as KB and KG. are measured in the “world” frame of reference.

particularly for resistance prediction purposes.
In Hydromax you may choose between the length between perpendiculars and the waterline length for the calculation of Block. it may be appropriate to use the actual waterline length at that draft (L).Appendix A
Length
The datum/design waterline or DWL is a waterline near which the fully loaded design is intended to float under normal circumstances. it may be more appropriate to define an effective length of the underwater body. for calculations at drafts other than the DWL. features such as bulbous bows and overhangs can make the LBP. The forward perpendicular is normally defined as the intersection of the DWL with the bow. In addition. The after perpendicular is normally defined as the position of the rudder post. Select Coefficients from the Display menu:
Page 217
. Several lengths may be defined: the LBP is the length between perpendiculars. will also be different from the LOA (overall length). Prismatic and Waterplane Area Coefficients. In some cases. or possibly the transom. this may be different from the length of the DWL (LWL) and in general. LWL and LOA quite different.
Some of the more common lengths that may be used to characterise a vessel.

Multihull beams
You may choose which beam should be used from the following list:
In the reported hydrostatics. For the section shown below. the beam used would be the sum of B1. For catamarans this will be twice the demihull beam (remember that the total displaced volume is used and hence the block coefficient is the same as that of a single demihull). In some cases the overall beam is of importance. B2 and B3. there may be times when it is appropriate to use the maximum immersed beam (e. vessel with tumble-home or blisters).g. submarine. the beam of the individual hulls may be required. and this may be of the DWL or the waterline under consideration.
Vessel with tumble-home
Catamarans and other multihull vessels pose another difficulty. Hydromax uses the total waterline beam of immersed portions of the section for calculation of block coefficient and other form parameters. in others.Appendix A
Beam
It is normal to use the maximum waterline beam for calculation of coefficients. For the calculation of section area coefficients it is normal practice to use the beam and draft of the section in question. you can select various beams:
Page 218
. However. For the case of a monohull this will be the normal waterline beam.

For a catamaran this would be from the outside of the port demihull to the outside of the starboard demihull. However.Appendix A
Calculated beams
The values “Beam extents” are those that measure the beam across the maximum port and starboard extents of the vessel. the datum may be elsewhere. this will be the same as the extents value. Hydromax uses these values for computing coefficients. Both depths are measured in upright position. it will be less than the extents value. including the option of measuring the draft to the baseline – this gives the option of ignoring appendages such as fin keels when determining the draft to be used to calculate the form parameter (if the baseline is defined to the bottom of the canoe body for example). Hydromax uses the depths that stations extend below the waterline for calculation of form coefficients. Normally this datum is the lowest part of the upright hull. In Hydromax drafts are defined from the datum line. for vessels with raked keel lines or yachts. but for a multihull. this is often the case when form parameters are calculated. It should be noted that the section area will. this would simply be the distance from the port side to the starboard side.:
Page 219
. For a monhull. However. however. include the appendages.
Draft
The draft is normally specified from a nominal datum. For a monhull without tunnels. You may select which depth should be used for the calculation of form parameters. there are also occasions when the immersed depth of the section is a more relevant measure of draft. The other beam values are calculated by summing the breadth of waterline crossings as described above.

Page 220
. Essentially the draft is measured along the heeled and trimmed perpendiculars on the centreline. For vessels with no parallel mid-body.Appendix A
Draft measurements
Draft measurement at heel angle When the vessel is heeled. perpendicular to the heeled waterline (see figure below). however for some vessels it is defined as the midpoint of the DWL. In Hydromax. the section with greatest cross-sectional area may also be of particular interest. the draft is measured through the intersection of the upright waterline and the centreline.
Difference between “Immersed depth” and “Draft” measurements
Midship and Max Area Sections
It is current usual practice to define the midship section as midway between the perpendiculars. It is for this reason that as the heel approaches 90degrees.
Draft measured along the inclined perpendicular lines
Immersed depth and Draft measurements The images below show the difference between the draft measurements (which are made in the inclined centreline plane of the vessel) and the immersed depth measurements (which are made normal to the free-surface). the position midway between the perpendiculars is defined as midships. the draft becomes very large.

Hydromax uses the length beam and draft as selected in the Coefficients dialog to compute the block coefficient. The beam and immersed depth of the selected section is used unless the draft to baseline option has been selected in which case this draft is used. for sections that have significant tumble-home or blisters below the waterline. The beam used is that obtained by summing the immersed waterline crossings of the specified section.Appendix A
When computing form coefficients. breadth and depth equal to the length. is calculated at either the station with maximum cross-sectional area or the midship section area (as defined in the Coefficients dialog). the midship section coefficient can be greater than unity." However. Length may be LBP. or may be defined according to another standard – this may be important for hulls with significant tumble-home or blisters below the waterline. LWL or some effective length. such as CP and CM. the actual definitions of the length." It should be noted that.
Block Coefficient
Principles of Naval Architecture defines the block coefficient as: "the ratio of the volume of displacement of the moulded form up to any waterline to the volume of a rectangular prism with length. you may select which section area should be used: Hydromax uses the station with the maximum immersed cross-sectional area at the waterline under consideration. The beam may be at amidships or the maximum moulded beam of the waterline. In Hydromax midships is midway between the perpendiculars. breadth and mean draft of the ship at that waterline.

The integration method used: trapezium. this is primarily due to differences in the definitions used – see discussion above. and number of interpolation points used to define each section. The differences are easily shown by considering the surface area of half a sphere. it may seem that wetted surface area may be calculated by simply integrating the station girth along the length of the hull. and occur in both hand calculations. the error due to integrating girths along the vessel length cannot be removed simply by increasing the number of integration stations.

This can be of particular importance if the waterline intersects the stem profile between two sections.

Differences in derived form parameters may show considerable variation. These effects are noted from comparing the results of different hydrostatics packages on the same hullform.

There are several heeling arms that are used for the criteria. For wind n=2 is often used for heeling because both the projected area as well as the lever decrease with the cosine of the heel angle. this is the ratio of the magnitude of the wind heeling arm during a gust to the magnitude of the wind heeling arm under steady wind.
Typically n=1 is used for passenger crowding and vessel turning since the horizontal lever for the passenger transverse location reduces with the cosine of the heel angle.

we have tried to distil the essence of the various stability criteria and present them in their simplest form whilst preserving the physical significance of the stability characteristic under assessment. In Hydromax we have always sought to keep the physical significance transparent in the formulation – for this reason. is presented in quite different ways by different regulatory bodies. constants such as acceleration due to gravity are explicitly shown in the formulations and consistent units are used – thus removing the need for obscure constants with strange units. This is the integral of the GZ curve where the ordinate is the area under the GZ curve integrated from zero to the heel angle in question. Furthermore.Appendix B

In Hydromax. the values are the same indicating that the areas under each curve from 0 to 2 are the same. what is essentially the same criterion. at 2 .
Dynamic stability criteria
In some cases the criteria are expressed in terms of the so-called dynamic stability curve. In this section we look at some common criteria and demonstrate how they may be evaluated in Hydromax. From these facts we can derive the following GZ and heeling arm curves:
Page 295
. from this we can deduce that the value of GZ and Heeling arm are the same at these angles. Remembering this relationship and that the slope of the dynamic stability curve is the value of GZ it is often possible to reformulate the same criterion in terms of one based on the GZ curve.
Capsizing moment
Often a capsizing moment is determined from the dynamic stability curve by drawing a line through the origin which is tangent to the GZ area curve. Finally since the dynamic heeling arm is a straight line with constant slope we know that the corresponding heeling arm is a constant value. In some cases. This is the dynamic heeling arm curve (blue) and is the integral of a constant value heeling arm. The problem is to reformulate this so that this capsizing moment can be found from the GZ curve:
Dynamic stability curve and Dynamic heeling arm. The capsizing moment is taken as the magnitude of GZ at this tangent heel angle 2 .
From the figure above we can see that the slopes of both curves are the same at 1 and 2 .

Area 2 corresponds to the area under the GZ curve up to the second intercept
Knowing that Area1 = Area2 we can deduce that Area 3 = Area 4 in the figure below:

All Hydromax criteria use a heeling arm since this is what is ultimately plotted on the GZ curve. (Note that the UK nautical mile is 6080ft = 1853. giving a conversion multiplier for knots to m/s of 0.1.51477333.5144444. and in the case of “moments” in mass. Thus 1 knot = 1852/3600 = 0...184m. Be careful as some criteria specify heeling arms and some specify heeling moments or “moments” in mass. it is necessary to divide by vessel weight ( g ). This can easily be done in Hydromax using the GZ area derived heeling arm type 2 criterion.2. the conversions for some common criteria have been explained.

Beta Testing
Immediately prior to the release of each new version of Hydromax. alpha test or beta test release. These results may either come from Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering texts such as well as from other results carried out by Formation Design Systems or other engineers using other software products such as NAPA. we begin shipping the commercial version. If you suspect a problem with Hydromax. A development version is usually only for internal use and is a very early demonstration of a possible new product or feature. and send you a new corrected version of the program. However. An alpha release is a first public release of a program for initial testing and comment. AutoShip etc. For example 1. A commercial release is a completed. Once the beta test program is completed and all testers are happy with the program. it is possible for errors to occur. If the version is a development.0 1.64 A commercial release of version 1. At each release the results from these tests are compared with the results from the previous release to ensure conformance with answers which have been established as being correct. it is not reliable.com and explain what you believe the problem to be.Appendix C
