Input model Analysis type selection Analysis settings Environment options Criteria specification and selection Run analysis Output
Hydromax operates in the same graphical environment as Maxsurf. The loadcase allows static weights and tankfillings to be specified and calculates the corresponding weights and centres of gravity as well as the total weight and centre of gravity of the vessel under the specified loading condition. A number of environmental setting options and modifiers add further analysis capabilities to Hydromax. Tanks and compartments can be flooded for the purpose of calculating the effects of damage. Loadgroups may also be created and cross referenced into loadcases. A number of loadcases can be created. which makes it easy to use.

Hydromax is a hydrostatics. This direct transfer preserves the three-dimensional accuracy of the Maxsurf model. centre of gravity and free surface moment. immersion and embarkation points.

Environment Options
Environmental options are modifiers that may be applied to the model or its environment that will affect the results of the all the hydrostatic analysis types. The analysis settings for each analysis type are explained in detail in the analysis synopsis below. For example: the upright hydrostatics analysis simply requires a range of drafts. different analyses may require different settings. a range of drafts in the case of upright hydrostatics.
Analysis Settings
The analysis settings describe the condition of the vessel to be tested. or a range of heel angles for a large angle stability analysis. whereas the longitudinal strength analysis requires a detailed load distribution.Chapter 1 Introduction
Analysis Types
Hydromax contains the following analysis tools:
Upright hydrostatics Large angle stability Equilibrium analysis Specified Condition analysis KN values and cross curves of stability Limiting KG analysis Floodable Length analysis Longitudinal Strength analysis Tank Calibrations MARPOL oil outflow Probabilistic damage (Hydromax Ultimate only)

KN Values Quickstart
KN values or Cross Curves of Stability are useful for assessing the stability of a vessel if its VCG is unknown. and KG is the distance from the baseline to the vessel's effective Vertical Centre of Gravity. for which the hydrostatic properties of the model are to be calculated.

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.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

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. At each of the specified displacements. For more detailed information please see KN Values Analysis on page 92. this may be specified. Hydromax runs several Large Angle Stability analyses at different KGs. This may be done for a range of vessel displacements. the centre of gravity is increased until one of the criteria fails. If the analysis is performed free-to-trim and an estimate of the VCG is known. The selected stability criteria are evaluated.

In addition a range of permeabilities may be specified.
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. are very insensitive to VCG and may prevent the analysis converging. this may be done in the Batch Analysis mode. Floodable Lengths may be computed for a range of displacements.to.e. if the intact condition is used. If the analysis is unable to converge for a certain displacement this will be noted and the next displacement tried. If limiting curves are required for each of the stability criteria individually. if a damage case is chosen. The VCG is also required to ensure accurate balance of the CG against the CB at high angles of trim. For more detailed information see Limiting KG on page 95. only intact criteria will be evaluated. A check will be made to ensure that any selected equilibrium criteria are passed. the LCG may be specified directly or calculated from a specified initial trim. such as angle of maximum GZ. Only relevant criteria will be used. however at least one large angle stability criterion is required.trim to either initial trim or specified LCG) Floodable length criteria to be tested

. centre of gravity and free surface moment (FSM).Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
The output is in the form of tabulated Floodable Lengths for each displacement and permeability. soundings are measured from the bottom of the sounding pipe to the free surface. Hydromax uses its fluid simulation mode to calculate the actual position of the fluids in the tanks. Tank calibrations may be calculated for a range of trim and heel angles. graphs of allowable shear and bending moment are superimposed on the graph. Fluid densities and tank permeabilities can be varied arbitrarily. The results for a single condition are shown in the results table. Longitudinal Strength 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 base line is the datum from which the drafts and KG are measured. The perpendiculars define the longitudinal positions of the vessel‟s draft marks and cannot be coincident. The frame of reference cannot be changed in Hydromax. 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. in the profile and plan views.
Page 18
. A consistent zero point and frame of reference should be used for the model throughout the Maxsurf suite. midships is automatically defined midway between the perpendiculars. the baseline and the datum waterline.
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.g. This is done through the Data | Draft Marks dialog.

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. Note Tank boundaries made from internal structures surfaces do not have skin thickness. ensure that the thickness and projection direction have been specified for the hull shell surfaces. the internal structure surface should be placed to model the inside of the tank if the tank wall has significant thickness.e. To include skin thickness.
Skin Thickness

Internal Structure
If skin thickness is to be used in hydrostatic calculations.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.
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. i. it is not included as part of the hull shell by Hydromax. 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. resulting in more accurate hydrostatics. If a surface is defined as internal structure. Thickness can be specified differently for each hull surface. To activate skin thickness in Hydromax ensure that the “Include Skin Thickness” option is selected when reading the file or calculating the hull sections.
Page 19
. 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. internal surfaces will be ignored in the forming of hydrostatic sections.

Outside Arrows
The surfaces‟ outside arrows define the orientation of the surfaces.
Trimming
Ensure that all surfaces are trimmed correctly.
Also see: Hydromax Sections Forming on page 27 Checking the Hydromax model on page 30
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. At any longitudinal position on the hull.
Correct section with one opening: this section will be closed across the top.g. you should have completely closed transverse sections or sections with at most one opening (e. the deck). The surface direction may be flipped by clicking on the end of the arrow.
Correct Section with no opening.

e. preferably by bonding the edges together Where surfaces intersect.

. e. internal structure surfaces are ignored when forming the hull sections in Hydromax
Note: For groups internal structure surfaces that will be used to define tank (or compartment boundaries) the same requirements apply. any surface thickness specified in the Maxsurf Surface Properties dialog may be included. These will then be used for the Hydrostatics calculations. Choose a Maxsurf design file (.msd). a maximum of one gap in a transverse section through the hull.
Include Plating Thickness
At this stage. To open a design for analysis. Also see: Checking the Hydromax model on page 30.

Hydromax recognises this precision setting and will and set the Surface Precision button accordingly. you may select how many stations should be used. Therefore it is recommended not to change the precision setting when opening the Maxsurf design file in Hydromax.msd). if it was known that a design had a significant discontinuity in its sectional area curve at amidships. there are two options:
Page 22
.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Stations
When calculating stations. To open an existing design. Reducing the precision of the sections can greatly improve performance. Reducing the number of stations will speed up the analysis time but reduce the accuracy. The Hydromax design file will consist of the hydrostatic sections and all input data such as loadcases. 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. It also allows designs with significant longitudinal discontinuities in their sectional areas to have stations specified either side of the discontinuity. avoiding any errors inherent in the integration of evenly spaced stations.
Opening an Existing Hydromax Design File

The upper limit for the number of stations is 200. For example. by specifying one station 1mm aft of amidships and one station 1mm forward of amidships this discontinuity can be modelled very accurately. Hydromax also allows saving of all input and output files into individual files. Note: Maxsurf surface trimming information may vary for different precisions. key points. a “Hydromax Design file” (. conversely increasing the number of stations will increase the analysis time but lead to higher accuracy results.

Selecting “no” will move all data other than the margin line with the zero point. 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. The “Recalculate Hull Sections” command recalculates Hull surfaces as well as Tank Boundary surfaces (Internal Structure surfaces in Maxsurf). will move relative to the hull. Any tanks and loadcases will also be updated with this command.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Click “yes” to maintain position of tanks. 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. Thus the tanks and loads etc.

Note: The golden rule is that for any longitudinal position. Whilst it is always preferable to give Hydromax a completely closed model with no ambiguities.g. however.
Where a section consists of an open shell (e. using “Read existing data and sections” to make sure the loadcase. This section outlines the section forming process used in Hydromax and may be helpful when preparing a Maxsurf design for Hydromax. a hull surface with no deck). having both a gap at the centreline as well as an open deck). Hydromax will try to resolve any problems with the model definition in the manner outlined in the following sections.
Page 27
. The same is true for groups of internal surfaces that have been selected to define a tank boundary. an ambiguity exists as to how the two line segments will be connected.g. or can be unambiguously closed. 4) use the “Recalculate Hull Sections” from the analysis menu. Hydromax will automatically close the section with a straight line connecting the opening ends. “hydrostatic sections” or just “sections”.
If.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Note: Changes to the Maxsurf design are only recalculated after the new Maxsurf design has been re-loaded into Hydromax. one opening is acceptable and this will be automatically closed with a straight line. This means that if the model is simultaneously being edited in Maxsurf and Hydromax. the section is made up of two line segments. contours cannot be contained wholly within another contour. Hydromax will automatically form these sections. called “Hydromax sections”. non-intersecting (and non-self-intersecting) contours. Furthermore. In practice. compartment definition etc remain part of the Hydromax design file. it is necessary to: 1) save and close the model in Hydromax 2) save in Maxsurf 3) open in Hydromax. (e. Hydromax deals only with sections that are completely closed. the section must be made up of closed.
Hydromax Sections Forming
Hydromax works by applying trapezoidal integration to data calculated from a series of cross sections taken through the Maxsurf model surfaces. This is not an acceptable shape.

Hydromax will form a closed section through multiple surfaces by linking the curve segments together.
Page 28
. if either the top or bottom gap had been closed in Maxsurf the design would cease to be ambiguous.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
In the example above. Multiple surfaces that are trimmed correctly. bonded together or use compacted control points will not cause any problems when opened in Hydromax.

A common example of ambiguous sections is a model with multiple decks. Hydromax will make an attempt to remove excess portions of the curve to form a single continuous contour.g. Where surfaces intersect. because there are too many dependencies in the program.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Hydromax will link curve segments together if they are only separated by a small amount. The user cannot change these tolerances. decks.
Ambiguous Sections (e. However this is not always possible so it is much better practice to trim the model correctly manually. Hydromax will have difficulties distinguishing the intended main deck.
Hydromax closes the outside contour and trims remnants
Page 29
.

If the bulwark‟s volume is expected to influence the hydrostatic calculations. look closely at intersections between surfaces to make sure that Hydromax has interpreted the shape correctly. the bulwark‟s volume has to be properly modelled in Maxsurf by modelling both the outside and the inside of the bulwark. This is done by selecting Show Single Hull Section in Body Plan view from the Display menu.
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. For more information see the Maxsurf manual. but this depends on the height of the bulwark relative to the rest of the section. This works the same as the Maxsurf body plan window and is an extremely powerful tool to validate your Hydromax model. In particular.
Page 30
. These sections should be continuous with no gaps and no unexpected lines. the left and right arrow cursor keys will enable you to step through the sections one-by-one. Incorrect sections in the model will give incorrect results. Therefore.
Show Single Hull Section
In the body plan view. you can step through the sections one-by-one to verify that they have been correctly calculated.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
The example above has bulwarks.
Checking the Hydromax model
Before starting any analysis you should check whether Hydromax has been able to correctly interpret your design. generally these will be treated correctly by Hydromax and removed. checking your sections after opening the design in Hydromax is strongly recommended. You can then click in the inset box to view the sections. To prevent ambiguities it is recommended to trim the bulwark in Maxsurf.

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. If this displays any unexpected spikes or hollows Hydromax may not have correctly interpreted the hull shape. Select Render from the Display menu whilst in the perspective view and turn on the sections:
Page 31
. 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.
This Cross Sectional Area curve indicates there may be a problem with section forming from 12 m to 16 m. which makes it easier to see if there are any areas of the model which have not been properly defined.

the model is 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”:

Coordinate System
Hydromax uses the Maxsurf coordinate system:

-ve aft -ve port -ve down
. it is important that you set up the required initial conditions for the design. Note: Before you run any analysis using Hydromax. 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.

This is done through the Data | Draft Marks dialog.

Draft Marks
Drafts are automatically calculated at the perpendiculars and amidships. Note: Changing the zero point in Maxsurf will not update the compartment definition. Immersed depth measurements are made perpendicualar to the free-surface. Drafts are always measured to the Baseline in the centre plane of the vessel.
Frame of Reference and Zero Point
It is essential that a frame of reference be specified. Changing the zero point after you have started analysing the model in Hydromax is not recommended. This should be done in Maxsurf and not in Hydromax. some analysis results will be meaningless or may even fail to complete.

Drafts can only be defined when the vessel is rotated to the DWL (Display | Set vessel to DWL).

The loadcase will normally update the column totals automatically as weights or tank loadings are changed. Static weights that make up the vessel lightship are specified here as well as tank filling levels. A loadgroup is included in a loadcase simply by specifying the loadgroup name in the “Item Name” column. Any changes to the loadgroup are then automatically incorporated into any loadcases that reference them. If the loadcase does not update.

The Loadcase properties dialog (Case menu) is used to define a loadcase as a Loadgroup:

Add will add a tank after the currently selected compartment and Delete will delete the currently selected compartment(s). in other words the two ends of the compartment.
See Longitudinal Extents of Boundary Box on page 67 for some recommendations regarding setting the boundary box. The accelerator keys Ctrl+A and the Delete key may also be used to add and delete entries respectively. The 'F' and 'A' abbreviations stand for Forward and Aft. the top and bottom. and the port and starboard limits of the tank. You will notice that aft columns contain the word "ditto". This is done by finding the intersection of the tank bounding box and the hull. Hydromax will form the sections that define the tanks and compartments. This box will be called the Boundary Box. resulting in a parallel tank. Thus it is not necessary to make the tanks fit the hull manually – this is done automatically by Hydromax. The boundary box is made up of the fore and aft extremities of the tank. This means that the value is identical at the aft end of the tank to the forward end. 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.
Adding and Deleting Compartments
Before you can start adding compartments. see above. make sure you have created a Compartment definition file.
Modelling Box Shape Tanks
Simple tanks and compartments are created by specifying six values that define a boxshaped boundary for the tank.
Box shaped compartments can be formed from the numerical values in the compartment definition table.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
This will give you a new set of compartment definitions with one default tank.

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.

Page 58

Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Procedure to Fix Overlapping Tanks:
Save Model Go into Comp def window Save comp def Delete all tanks except for one you wish to investigate form tanks.. Depending on the level of accuracy required. The compartment permeability is applied when the compartment is flooded in a damage condition and the non-buoyant volume permeability is applied at all times since it is always flooded. for example. Compartments and non-buoyant volumes have only one permeability.
Relative Density of Tank Fluids

all entries for that fluid in the compartment definition are automatically updated. or if you prefer. Groups of linked tanks and compartments will be moved together. the default density specified here in the compartment definition may be overridden in the loadcases. Whenever values are changed in the Density dialog (see Density of Fluids on page 150). you can use damage cases to quickly change the display to show certain tanks.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Alternatively the fluid type can be entered into the Fluid Type column. selected tanks may be displayed in the following manner:
Define a damage case Select only damaged tanks and compartments for display. so it is normally only necessary to type the first few letter of the name). hence you should design these surfaces to the inside of the tank. 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. it is often useful to check individual tanks. If a fluid type is entered. compartments and non-buoyant volumes will correctly account for the surface thickness and its projection direction: the tanks will go to the inside of the hull shell.

Choose the damage case from the Analysis toolbar Set any of the tanks and compartments you wish to be visible to damaged in the damage case window. Only tank sections that lie on or near the current station are shown – this makes it easier to verify that the tanks have been formed.

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).

Understanding these processes may assist you in rare situations where the tank forming does not work as expected. The water ballast tanks have a margin plate on the side.

Step-by-Step Tank Forming Process
As an example. First a step-by-step outline of the tank forming process is given.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
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.

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. If you selected “use trimmed surfaces” while opening the Maxsurf model. Another common cause of unexpected results is trimming. 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 surfaces selected to form the tank boundary must form closed section contours at all longitudinal positions through the tank. As with the hull sections. Make sure that the boundary surfaces:
Form a closed section contour. The tank or compartment looks like this at this stage:
Page 63
. Hydromax will use the trimmed internal structure surface. The area inside the selected surfaces will define the tank contour. Step 2: Clip to Boundary Surface Using the closed surface section contour Hydromax can now form a closed compartment section.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. Usually the internal structure surfaces are best to be left untrimmed.

it is not really realistic because it would not be possible to define a tank above the surface-bounded double bottom tanks. The boundary box is formed from the numerical input in the Compartment definition table.
More realistic surface-bounded tanks
Whilst the above example shows the principles by which surface-bounded tanks are formed. A more realistic example is shown in the following section. 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
.
Step 4: Clip to Boundary Box Finally the compartment section is clipped to the boundary box.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Step 3: Clip to Hull Hydromax will clip the compartment section to the hull. In practice additional surfaces would be required.

Thus it is important to have a sufficiently large number of sections to accurately model the tank. additional sections will be inserted into the tank so that the tank section spacing match the hull section spacing.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Number of Sections in Tanks
The volume of a tank or compartments is calculated by integrating section properties along the length of 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). this will be done automatically by Hydromax. Hydromax will normally place twelve sections between the forward and aft limits defining the tank. In most cases. If this results in a section spacing greater than the spacing for the hull spacing. The following example illustrates why:
Page 67
.

Hydromax will automatically set the “Fore” and “Aft” limits of the boundary box to just within the longitudinal limits of the boundary surface.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. This ensures that at least 12 sections are inserted in the tank.tanks. compartments. 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 . linked compartments and non-buoyant volumes. linked tanks.

. Note that transversely and vertically there are no such restrictions. For internal structure surfaces that are used as boundary surface.
But if the boundary box is set just inside the forward limit of the bulbous bow:
To recap – Near the ship‟s extremities. the longitudinal extents should not be set to extreme values.

Tanks need not be adjoining to be linked. you need to use the Sounding Pipes table in the Input window. etc. They do not have a separate entry in the loadcase. c or n) in the Type column of the Compartment Definition table and then press Enter. In this case the tank linking simulates tanks with cross connections.
Page 69
.g. shown below. any tank that it is linked to will also be regarded as damaged. Hydromax creates a default sounding pipe when the tank is formed (either by running an analysis. Compartments Are only used to specify compartmentation for damage. the bottom of the tank is flat either longitudinally or transversely) the default sounding pipe location is placed at the aft-most low point and as close to the centreline as possible. Linked Compartments Work in the same way as linked tanks. any changes to the sounding pipe due to tank geometry changes will also have to be made manually. The default sounding pipe is placed at the longitudinal and transverse position of the lowest point of the tank. Automatically created sounding pipes will be recalculated if the tank geometry changes.
Edit Sounding Pipes
To customise a sounding pipe. If the lowest point of the tank is shared between several locations (e. They are ideal for defining water-jet ducts.

Selecting a Damage Case
The current damage case is selected from the Analysis toolbar. Hydromax assumes that all compartment definition has been done after the tanks have been defined. Note: Hydromax uses the “Lost buoyancy” method rather than “Added mass”. Note that carrying out a Tank Calibration analysis will force the intact case to be selected. turning off all damage in all the damage cases (use the fill down command) and then pasting back in the original data from where it was stored in the spreadsheet. their weights and levers are no longer displayed in the Loadcase window and the word „Damage‟ is displayed in the quantity column. and all values set to zero.

This is because normally you will have computed a GZ curve for a wider heel range than you would wish to display in this graph – it is uncommon to sail a vessel with a steady heel angle of greater than 40 degrees. MCA require downflooding but you can include additional criteria if desired. This allows you to specify the critical condition that should not be exceeded due to a gust or squall. You can also change the shape of the heeling arm curve and the gust ratio. Finally you can adjust the axis limits.

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

Select Specified Conditions from the Analysis Type option in the Analysis menu or toolbar.

Values from the current loading condition can be inserted into the Centre of Gravity and Displacement fields by clicking on the Get Loadcase Values button. 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 specified condition analysis itself ignores tank fillings and does no correction to VCG.

If a VCG estimate is specified. KN calculations are calculated assuming the VCG at the baseline (K). 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.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Note: Since Limiting KG can be quite a time consuming analysis.) Limiting KG calculations will be significantly faster if the trim is fixed. so if there is any form of asymmetry. it may be necessary to run the analysis heeling the vessel to both starboard and port (this can be done automatically in the Batch Analysis). (However this will cause some loss of accuracy. trim and centre of gravity are given in the results table. you may wish to use a smaller number of heel angles than for the Large Angle Stability calculations.

In this case.g. Important: For important information on varying displacement while evaluating criteria see Important note: heeling arm criteria dependent on displacement on page 240. For example in the case where the heeling moment. the correct values of displacement and VCG will be used in the evaluation of these criteria. Hydromax will continue doing this until the limiting KG value has been iterated to within 0. 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. 1 meter). Hydromax will start with a set start KG value (e. since the heeling arm is not related to the vessel displacement in its definition within Hydromax.
Page 97
. If you require the limiting KG for each criterion individually or wish to perform a Large Angle Stability and Equilibrium analysis at each of the displacements and the corresponding limiting KG. this is because they do not necessarily refer to the final KG and would be misleading. this can be done in the Batch Analysis. Where these values are explicit in the criterion‟s definition in Hydromax. run a large angle stability analysis and check the selected criteria. If the criteria pass.
Limiting KG Concepts
Hydromax will iterate to a KG value that just passes all criteria you have specified in the criteria dialog. If any of the criteria fail. the results in the Criteria results table display “Not Analysed”. Hydromax will raise the KG value and try to make the criteria fail. Some criteria may depend on the vessel displacement and or vessel‟s VCG.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
After a Limiting KG analysis has completed. the heeling arm will remain constant for all displacements (where it is perhaps desired that the heeling arm should vary with displacement. If this tolerance is not achieved in a certain number of iterations. Hydromax will move on to the next displacement. However.1mm. Hydromax will lower the KG and try again. Also see: Convergence Error on page 146 in the Analysis Settings section. rather than the heeling arm is constant).

Note that we are only concerned about the tanks that will be damaged and that initially contain cargo or ballast. the intact vessel is upright (zero heel). the mass and CG of the intact vessel after deducting the masses of cargo or ballast in any tanks that will be damaged.) Two methods of specifying the required TCG are possible.
Page 98
. 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. Hydromax may have difficulty in finding a true limiting KG and specify convergence errors. TCG and KG will also be for the intact vessel. this can be specified below (if the vessel is symmetrical and initially upright. The second method was available in older versions of Hydromax and it is the first method that provides the additional functionality: 1. 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. 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. This is because under most circumstances. This functionality has been in Hydromax for many years. 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.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
When performing a Limiting KG analysis. this is because when they are damaged the ballast or cargo is assumed to be totally lost from the vessel.
Example calculations
It is probably simplest to explain this functionality by means of an example. This is because to perform a sensible search. 2. However.e. this is not seen as an additional mass because damage is computed by the lost buoyancy method. Note that all results and input data will be assumed to be for the intact vessel. i. however the specified displacement and CG corresponds to that of the intact vessel with damaged tanks empty. In this case. Hydromax must have at least one criterion that will improve by reducing the VCG. 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. (Although seawater enters these damaged areas.
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. Hydromax will evaluate any equilibriumbased criteria that are selected for testing and act accordingly. The tanks would generally provide a transverse moment that must be balanced by the mass of the vessel. if only these types of criteria are selected. it is often required to specify a required TCG. 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. This is used to compute required TCG. That is the specified displacement will be that of the intact vessel and that the resulting LCG. this should be zero). which must therefore be offset. at least one GZbased criterion must also be selected. If the vessel has an off-centre intact TCG.

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. Here we have specified that the tank is 80% full before the damage is applied. We wish to find the maximum VCG that the intact vessel may have in order to pass the selected stability criteria. Importantly we shall also specify that the current loadcase should be used to determine the required TCG and because the vessel is symmetrical. 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. In this case we shall use free to trim. This is done by defining a loadcase and switching to the intact mode to specify the tank filling levels.25m by the stern.
Initial tank loadings
First we need to define how much cargo is in the tanks that will be damaged. but with an initial vessel trim of 0.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

Trim and TCG specification Running the Analysis
We now need to select the damage case to be evaluated. 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. 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. In this case large port-side tanks are to be damaged. It must be remembered that these are KG results not VCG so when checking the VCG must be calculated. In this case the baseline (K) is at – 356.

Traditionally the criterion of margin line immersion is used to compute the Floodable Length curve. For information on Trim settings for Floodable Length Analysis. The permeability dialog is used to specify the permeabilities to be used for the Floodable Length analysis. The VCG must also be specified since the Floodable length analysis is very sensitive to accurate trim calculations. the permeability is applied over the entire length of the vessel and is also applied to the free-surface when calculating the reduction of waterplane area and inertia. The range of displacements to be used is set in the same way as they are set in the KN and Limiting KG analyses. see: Trim on page 142.

Flow through – Typical Use-case
The following section shows how the probabilistic damage analysis might typically be used. This is then compared with the required index. For each condition. 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. It is useful to have this interaction because if the p Factor is too large for a particular zone. a p-factor can be calculated. User defines the bulkheads and deck values for single and groups of adjacent zones. 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. The GZ curves are calculated for a large number of different damage conditions and several load cases. The vessel‟s attained subdivision index is the sum of the products of the pfactors with their corresponding s-factors. A first pass at this can be automatically generated using the Case | Extent of damage command.
During the analysis each GZ curve and details on the evaluation of the s-factor may be saved in a log file. The user can then perform the probabilistic damage analysis. The same log file is used for each analysis so it is important to either change the name or copy the file at the end of the analysis if the results are to be kept. Hydromax runs a large angle stability analysis for each combination of loadcase and damage and collates the results to calculate the attained index. the user may decide to refine the zone arrangement. the p-factors Damage window | p Factors table are automatically calculated and displayed as the zone data is modified. 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:

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).

This will help the user to determine the maximum number of adjacent zones that should be analysed.216(82) or MSC. the probability of damaging a longitudinal zone or group of adjacent zones is calculated as well as the cumulative probability. it probably makes more sense to limit the analysis by specifying a desired minimum p-factor rather than a number of adjacent zones.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

there is a special way of calculating the b-value and this needs to be done for each set of adjacent zones. This is because where the side-shell or bulkhead is not parallel to the centerline. The side-shell offset value defaults to the maximum halfbeam of the vessel. The b-values are defined not only for each individual zone.
Transverse sub-zone definition and R-Factors
Transverse sub-zone definition allows the user to limit the damage penetration to a certain distance into the vessel towards the centerline. I have followed IMO notation by specifying the penetration depth from the side-shell (rather than specifying the offset from the centerline). the inner limit being at a distance side-shell offset minus b from the centreline.

As well as the main longitudinal subdivision. The sum of all r-factors should be unity (a check is provided). A column is provided for the user to specify the side-shell offset (from the centerline) and this is used only to draw the transverse extents of the damage zone. the zone will be damaged up to (but not across) the centreline. If no b-values are specified. measured from the side-shell. Note that there is one extra r-factor than the number of bulkheads – this represents the probability of damaging to the centerline. The r-factors are then calculated for each of the b-values that have been defined. it is also possible to define sub-zones due to longitudinal bulkheads (transverse subdivision) and decks (vertical subdivision).

Hydromax will allow specification of only those analysis settings that apply to the currently selected analysis type. simply put 0 in the other steps. For an equilibrium analysis all degrees of freedom are derived from the centre of gravity and Displacement.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Analysis Settings
In the previous sections opening and preparing a model in Hydromax was discussed together with descriptions of the different Analysis types. If only one set of steps is required. heel and draft with the vessel‟s mass and centre of gravity or visa versa. 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 hydrostatic analysis. or it can match a specified displacement and centre of gravity by varying the heel. The heel steps must be positive. trim and draft by varying the displacement and centre of gravity. For example: it can match a specified heel. In this case the LCB and TCB (and therefore the required LCG and TCG) are calculated from the underwater hullshape at each draft. Heel and Draft.
Heel
The Heel dialog from the analysis menu is used to specify the range of heel angles to be used for Large Angle Stability.
Page 141
. Hydromax matches the trim. there are three degrees of freedom: Trim. 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. trim and draft. Heel angles between 180 and +180 may be specified. 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. For example: the Upright Hydrostatics analysis consists of fixing heel and trim and stepping through a series of fixed drafts. because vertical centre of gravity is also important and also because most of the variables are coupled.

. Hydromax will fit a cubic spline to the GZ curve and use this to interpolate for values between the tested heel angles. loading.) Equilibrium and Longitudinal Strength analyses always use a free trimming (and free heeling) analysis so that there is no trimming (or heeling) moment applied to the vessel at the final equilibrium.
Trim
For most analyses you may specify whether the vessel is free-to-trim or has fixed trim. (For the Specified Condition analysis. Trim may be specified for Upright Hydrostatics. it is advisable to test at least one negative heel angle. then the analysis should be carried out for both heel to starboard and heel to port to find the most pessimistic condition. to ensure that the equilibrium angle is identified. Note: For the angle of equilibrium to be found (when analysing criteria). This is to allow roll back angle criteria to be evaluated correctly.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
If there is any asymmetry in the vessel due to either: hull shape. Hydromax will not do any curve fitting and linear interpolation will be used. at say -5 degrees. key points. Large Angle Stability. If all the heel angle intervals are 10 deg or less. It is possible that the GZ at zero heel may be very slightly positive (due to asymmetry or rounding error) for this reason. Floodable Length and Tank Calibrations.
Note: The heel angles to be used are specified independently for each analysis mode.. This can be a source of apparent differences in the results from the different analyses. KN Analysis Limiting KG. and there is any doubt as to which will be the worst heel direction. Select Trim in the Analysis menu to bring up the Trim dialog. It is good practise to start the heel range at an angle of approximately -30°. it is essential that the GZ curve crosses the GZ=0 axis with positive slope.

the vessel is not free-totrim as it heels. Free to trim to specified CG – this is again free-to-trim but the CG is specified in the dialog. Equilibrium. The TCG and VCG are specified directly. KN. In this case. intact vessel trim will be the same. 3. the VCG is being found by the analysis. so cannot be specified. but the LCG will be different. heel is not considered thus TCG cannot be specified. The LCG is calculated using this value and the VCG. Probabilistic Damage. In the case of the Limiting KG analysis. Calculations at each heel angle of the large angle stability analysis are then done free-to-trim using the derived LCG and VCG. KN.
Specification of different trim options is dependent on the type of analysis currently selected.
Fixed trim (KN and Limiting KG analyses only). intact vessel floats at a specified trim. This it is possible to specify the LCG either directly or so that the upright. specified initial trim. for each displacement. Although considerably faster.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax

VCG for trim balance The VCG.) In the case of the Limiting KG analysis. It will also be used to improve the accuracy of the KN results. The TCG can be either specified directly or calculated from the tank loadings defined in the current loadcase. For Floodable Length calculations. Also. for the Limiting KG analysis. there is an option to automatically adjust the displacement and LCG of the vessel so that liquid cargo 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. any liquid cargo should also be removed from the model. which are always calculated free-to-trim. It will be used to determine the LCG if an initial trim value is specified. (As the trim angle increases the longitudinal movement of the centre of gravity due to its vertical position becomes more important. the actual VCG is used and the VCG input field will state “not applicable”. TCG value The TCG option allows you to specify an off-centreline centre of gravity for Limiting KG and KN calculations. the VCG will only have an effect if the analysis is free-to-trim.
Draft
The draft dialog is used to specify the range of drafts to be used for the Upright hydrostatics analysis. This is for consistency with the lost buoyancy analysis method: the buoyancy contribution of damaged tanks is removed from the model. the VCG is needed to provide an accurate balance of the trimming moment. but the upright vessel trim will be different.

Individual Permeability of Tanks and Compartments
The individual permeability of each compartment (or tank) is specified in the Compartment definition table. The permeabilities may be sorted by double clicking on the permeability column heading. and/or calculating the weights of fluids in tanks in the loadcase.
Permeability
The Permeabilities are set in a table in the Permeability dialog. the permeability is applied over the entire length of the vessel. tank and non-buoyant volume permeabilities are used when calculating the effects of damage.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
The VCG specified in the draft dialog is used for the calculation of upright stability characteristics such as GMt only. and is specified in terms of KG – i.

See Specified Conditions on page 90. Limiting KG and Floodable Length calculations. which is not necessarily the vertical zero datum.

Convergence Error
Hydromax will attempt to solve most analysis to within the ideal tolerance.
One of the most common causes of non-convergence is if the specified displacement exceeds the volume of the completely submerged vessel and it sinks. Also convergence may be poor if the trim angle approaches 90 . The specified displacement and the actual displacement at the current iteration are provided for information.1% (1 gram in 10 tonnes of displacement). This defines the tolerances that Hydromax uses to determine when to finish iteration during

This problem can sometimes occur if the specified displacement is extremely small and the vessel has a large flat bottom. Note: There are occasions when convergence will not necessarily occur within the maximum allowable number of iterations. If you choose to continue.

In addition it is possible to ignore the free surface moment if the VCG correction for a single tank.
3. Selecting Fluids in the Analysis menu opens the Fluids Analysis dialog. This is applicable to the “IMO” free surface moment type only. the free surface moment will be zero. provided that the total of such residual liquids does not constitute a significant free surface effect.2 Free surface effects should be considered whenever the filling level in a tank is less than 98% of full condition.3. This requires that a nominal minimum displacement be specified. This functionality is accessed through the Analysis | Fluids dialog:

Fluids Analysis Methods
Hydromax allows you to specify two different ways of simulating any fluids contained in tanks or compartments.10 The usual remainder of liquids in empty tanks need not be taken into account in calculating the corrections. You may set different limits for each of the different free surface moment types other than “User Specified”.e. filling level is 98% or above. 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. It is possible to specify the range of filling levels for which free surface moments should be applied in the loadcase. i.e. due to the free surface moment is less than a specified amount.3. the FSM is applied if the filling level is within the exclusive range specified. but the code provides some flexibility in interpretation for the lower limit. (see IMO IS Code)

3. with 10% stores and minimum water ballast. Note that the upright free surface moments as shown in the loadcase are used. 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. This method should be used when compiling a stability booklet for a design. These values are automatically calculated from the maximum free surface moments of the tanks. calculated in the upright condition. if required. There are several FSM types available. not those from the actual second moment of area of the inclined tank waterplane. authorities have not adopted this more accurate calculation of the shift in centre of gravity due to fluid movement. For more information. the loading window will include a column for free surface moment and cells for corrected fluid VCG.

. 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).9 Small tanks which satisfy the following condition using the values of "k" corresponding to an angle of inclination of 30°. It is reasonably accurate at low angles of heel and trim. Although the computational potential is available.

Note: Calculation of GM GM values always use the centre of gravity corrected for free surface moments even if the “simulate fluid” option has been chosen.

. will give a single wave crest at amidships. If the vessel touches one or both grounding points. both of which correspond to a wave crest at the forward end of the DWL. this will bring the effective centres of gravity and the centre of buoyancy in line vertically. Damage can be specified concurrently with grounding. the sum of the buoyancy and the grounding reactions equals the loadcase displacement. The phase offset governs the position of the wave crest aft of the forward end of the DWL. with a wavelength equal to the waterline length. 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.5. Remember that KG is measured in the upright vessel reference frame (normal to the baseline). a phase offset of 0.
Grounding
Grounding is an additional analysis environment option for the Equilibrium or Longitudinal Strength analysis.

Note: Fixed zero heel during grounding analysis The equilibrium analysis will only consider the longitudinal balance of moments. 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.
Damage
You can specify whether the model is to be analysed in intact or damaged condition using the Analysis Toolbar. The vessel is considered to pivot at the centre of the grounding point.e. Also see: Damage Case Definition on page 71
Page 154
.Chapter 3 Using Hydromax
Note: Grounding points are considered to span the transverse extents of the hull and therefore constrain the heel to zero. When two grounding points are entered. the first point (edit boxes on the left) must refer to the forward grounding point. the second grounding point is the aft grounding point. For more information see Chapter 4 Stability Criteria starting at page 163. 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. i.

Criteria List Overview
Hydromax includes a wide range of criteria. Criteria Results. an overview of what capabilities Hydromax offers with regards to stability criteria. This ensures that the correct criteria are evaluated and displayed during normal and batch analysis. This section describes how this list of criteria can be divided up in to Parent heeling arms. Criteria results are added to the Report after a Large Angle Stability or Equilibrium analysis. Stability criteria are evaluated for Large Angle Stability. HSC. These criteria are listed using in a tree control on the left-hand side of the criteria dialog. Although all criteria are displayed in the criteria table. Criteria Procedures. However. It is also possible for users to create their own custom sets of criteria. only the criteria that are selected for evaluation during an intact analysis will be evaluated and added to the report. ISO and more.e. only criteria that are applicable are added to the report.

Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
This chapter describes how stability criteria are used in Hydromax. Users may save. and after a Large Angle Stability analysis only GZ based criteria are added to the report. This makes it quick and easy to set which criteria should be included for analysis and to change criteria parameters. A fixed sub-set of criteria is used for the Floodable length analysis and these criteria are accessed in their own. This section also explains how all criteria can be divided up into two different criteria types: equilibrium and GZ curve based. i.

Criteria Concepts
Hydromax includes a wide range of template criteria (or: parent criteria) as well as predefined custom criteria such as IMO. The following sections will be discussed:
Criteria Concepts. similarly for the damage cases. Criteria may be identified as intact or damage criteria (or both). Help information relating to the use and parameters of each criterion is displayed in the lower right hand corner of the dialog.e. Parent criteria. after an Equilibrium analysis only those criteria that are evaluated from Equilibrium data are added.

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. Those heeling moment are then used in a number of different criteria. These calculations may be referenced in certain criteria.Chapter 4 Stability Criteria
The criteria tree list
Parent Calculations This folder contains calculations that are required for certain criteria parameters.
Parent calculations in Hydromax Criteria dialog
Parent Heeling Arms In most cases a ship is subject to specific heeling moments. the roll-back angle required for the IMO IS code Severe wind and rolling (weather) criterion. for example.
Page 164
.

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

For example.g. in some criteria sets some criteria are included twice. This type of criterion is also used by the Floodable Length analysis. Equilibrium criteria can be recognised by the icon. e. etc. angle of maximum GZ. GZ criterion. The equilibrium heel angle is also a fundamental output of the Equilibrium analysis. These criteria are evaluated only after an equilibrium analysis has been performed. it must be a LAS criterion. notably angle of equilibrium heel. For this reason. Equilibrium criterion.

This is because it is only this type of criteria that is more likely to pass as VCG is reduced. once in the form of an Equilibrium criterion and again as a Large Angle Stability criterion. You will notice that different icons are used to differentiate between different types of criteria. The same also applies for GMt. etc. Combined GZ heeling arm criterion. A check is also made to ensure that any selected Equilibrium criteria are passed. These criteria make measurements from the GZ curved obtained from a Large Angle Stability analysis. The different types of criteria and their icons are described below: Folder icon. Criteria derived from measurements of the GZ curve. These are calculated after a Large Angle Stability analysis and during a Limiting KG analysis. These icons are derived from the parent criterion type. STIX. This can be measured from the GZ curve by looking for an up-crossing of the GZ=0 axis. Weather criterion.

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. These criteria are often referred to as Large Angle Stability (LAS) or GZ criteria. 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. but they cannot be included directly in the search algorithm.

If you choose “Yes” your existing criteria will be kept. 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. Note It is good practise to save the criteria file with the project in the project folder. it is important to ensure that the group names in the file you are importing are not the same as those that already exist. either overwriting the existing one or creating a new one. Even if you loaded an alternative file. or Ctrl select to select multiple files in the Open Hydromax Criteria dialog. That way. Further updates will. however. you must save them in a new file first. This will simply export all the custom criteria (parent criteria are not saved) to the specified file. These may be found in the “HMSpecificCriteria” folder. If this does occur. 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. You can import several criteria files in one go using Shift. A number of criteria containing criteria for specific codes are supplied with Hydromax. all existing criteria except the parent criteria will be removed and replaced by those in the file you are opening.
Saving Criteria
It is also possible to save the criteria into a new file. so if you want to save any further changes you will have to resave as described above. all criteria are still available.

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
GZ curve with heeling arm superimposed GZ Definitions
The table below defines how Hydromax calculates the various features of the GZ curve: Angle of vanishing stability Angle of vanishing stability with heeling arm curve Downflooding angle Equilibrium angle Equilibrium angle with heeling arm curve First peak in GZ curve The angle of vanishing stability is the smallest positive angle where the GZ curve crosses the GZ=0 axis with negative slope. 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.
Page 178
. The equilibrium angle is the angle closest to zero where the GZ curve crosses the GZ=0 axis with positive slope. In some cases. the GZ curve may have multiple peaks. The downflooding angle is the smallest positive angle at which a downflooding point becomes immersed. 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. this often occurs if the vessel has a large watertight cabin.

the heeling arm is forced to be zero at heel angles greater than 90° and less than -90°. Commonly used in wind and weather criteria to account for the action of waves rolling the vessel into the wind. Often a roll back angle is measured from some equilibrium position. This is typically used to assess the effects of external heeling moments. If the heeling arm has a power of cos greater than zero. The location of the metacentre is computed from the water-plane inertia. the Gust Ratio is the ratio of the magnitude of the gust wind heeling arm to the steady wind heeling arm. the heeling arm is made zero.

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.

Graph Window
The Graph window displays graphs. Depending on the analysis mode.

These can all be displayed via the Graphs item in the Windows menu. Hydromax will ignore the exact position you click on the curve to allow reading all related interpolated values along the black dashed line. The area is integrated from zero heel angle to the location of the graph slider. Tip: You can use the Select View from Analysis Data option (page 159) to see the Curve of Areas for each heel angle and/or intermediate stage during the analysis.

Curve fitting for GZ graph
A curve fit will be performed if all the heel angle intervals are less than or equal to 10˚. this double click can be extremely helpful to export the analysis data to for example Excel fro further processing. Thus if you require the area between two limits.
Graph data
The graphed data can be obtained by double clicking on the graph.
Graph Formatting
When you are in the Graph window you can use the View | Colours and lines dialog to change the colours of the curves in the graph as well as the background. The View | Font command allows you to change the text size and font size. If this is the case.
Copying Graphs
You can copy the contents of the Graph window using the Copy command or Ctrl+C. where there is no tabular data available.

. Since the graph data contains more data points than most tables in the results window. Note that the picture is placed in the clipboard as a meta-file which can be resized in Word or Excel. This can sometimes be useful if you expect a discontinuity in the GZ curve. Especially in the case of the sectional area curve. add a heel angle interval of greater than 10˚ as the final step. you must subtract the area at the lower limit from the area at the higher limit. a parametric cubic spline is used to fit a smooth curve through the calculated GZ data at the specified heel angles. Also see: Copying Tables on page 158. This ensures that the fitted line goes exactly through the calculated GZ points. If you wish to prevent this curve fitting.Chapter 5 Hydromax Reference
Note The lower integration limit is always zero (irrespective of the equilibrium angle).

However.

Definition and calculation of form parameters
Below is a summary of the definitions of basic vessel particulars and form parameters used in Hydromax. and investigates why differences with other hydrostatics packages may occur. 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. “Longitudinal” measurements are made parallel to the baseline and “vertical” measurements are perpendicular to the baseline.Appendix A
Appendix A: Calculation of Form Parameters
This Appendix explains how the calculation of form parameters (CB.) is achieved in Hydromax. 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. these axis systems are no longer parallel. Here the baseline is no longer horizontal and neither are the perpendiculars vertical. CP. Here the baseline is horizontal and the perpendiculars are vertical. However. AM. However if the vessel is trimmed or heeled or rotated in both directions simultaneously. World or trimmed frame of reference The “world” or “trimmed” reference frame is that of the trimmed vessel. etc. because Hydromax treats trim exactly (the hull is rotated not sheared when trim occurs).

then there will be a sin(trim angle) term introduced. GM.e. and measurements from the keel such as KB and KG.Appendix A
Ship-Fixed and Earth-Fixed(world) axis systems
The majority of measurements are given in the “ship” frame of reference. KM is not equal to KB+BM (BM is in a different axis system to KB and KM. Similarly. 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. This is because if the vessel is trimmed and if the VCG and VCB are not the same. that are explicitly vertical. are measured in the “world” frame of reference. These include longitudinal centres of gravity. in general. and only if the vessel is upright are the axis systems parallel and hence the equation holds). 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. 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. The same is true of TCB and TCG if the vessel is heeled.

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

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

It is normal to use the maximum waterline beam for calculation of coefficients.

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

It is current usual practice to define the midship section as midway between the perpendiculars.

. the draft becomes very large. perpendicular to the heeled waterline (see figure below). 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. the position midway between the perpendiculars is defined as midships. Essentially the draft is measured along the heeled and trimmed perpendiculars on the centreline. It is for this reason that as the heel approaches 90degrees. For vessels with no parallel mid-body.
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). however for some vessels it is defined as the midpoint of the DWL. In Hydromax.

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. the actual definitions of the length. such as CP and CM. the midship section coefficient can be greater than unity. beam and draft used vary between authorities."

Waterplane Area Coefficient
Principles of Naval Architecture defines the waterplane area coefficient as: "The ratio between the area of the waterplane and the area of a circumscribing rectangle. Therefore a difference between the LCG and the LCB value will occur when the vessel is trimmed. the LCG and LCB will be at the same longitudinal position in the global coordinate system. see Measurement Reference Frames on page 214. Hydromax uses the selected length and the selected immersed cross-section area Amax or Ams. When the vessel is free-to-trim. See Customising Coefficients on page 36 for more information.

LCG and LCB
Hydromax allows you to fully customise how you want to display the LCB and LCF values.

The unitlength can be either in cm or inch depending on your unit settings. Hydromax calculates the steepest slope of the deck when the ship is trimmed and/or heeled. Deck camber and initial deck slope are not taken into account. That can be either cm or inch depending on your unit settings. This is the same for differences in TCG and TCB values due to heeling. For example:
The Max deck inclination is the maximum slope of the deck when combining the trim and heel angle of the vessel.Appendix A
Note: LCG and LCB are calculated in the vessels‟ frame of reference and therefore will have different longitudinal positions when the vessel is trimmed then for when it is upright. Tf are the aft and forward drafts at the corresponding perpendiculars and LPP is the length between perpendiculars.

Potential for errors in hydrostatic calculations
There are a number of potential sources of error when calculating the hydrostatic properties of immersed shapes. the error due to integrating girths along the vessel length cannot be removed simply by increasing the number of integration stations. note that this is with an infinite number of integration steps. Different number of integration stations used. Differences in derived form parameters may show considerable variation. this is primarily due to differences in the definitions used – see discussion above. Both methods use numerical integration techniques. the stations should be more closely spaced. The integration method used: trapezium. As with all numerical integration schemes. in general. differences for basic parameters such as displacement etc. hence computer calculations offer an enormous advantage compared with hand calculations. These mainly occur from the integration method used. Simpson. it is quite feasible to use 200 sections or more with 10s of significant figures. and their distribution. The 0. The differences are easily shown by considering the surface area of half a sphere. It may be shown that the area obtained by integrating the girth of the sphere along its length is given by:
R2 . in a similar way that one might integrate the station cross-sectional area along the length of the hull to obtain the volume. This is given analytically by: A 2 R 2 . Further.

This can be of particular importance if the waterline intersects the stem profile between two sections. it may seem that wetted surface area may be calculated by simply integrating the station girth along the length of the hull. These effects are noted from comparing the results of different hydrostatics packages on the same hullform. or 0.5% (note that. may be attributed to a number of causes:

If the surface is exported as DXF poly-lines then the precision used and the number of straight-line sections used to make up the poly-line are important. with computer calculations.

since they are derived from the actual parametric definition of the surface. for normal ship hulls the differences will be much less. Surface areas calculated by the 'Calculate Areas' dialog in Maxsurf are the most accurate. due to the greatly reduced longitudinal curvature.Appendix A

from this we can deduce that the value of GZ and Heeling arm are the same at these angles. This is the dynamic heeling arm curve (blue) and is the integral of a constant value heeling arm. From these facts we can derive the following GZ and heeling arm curves:
Page 295
.Appendix B
Appendix D: Specific Criteria
In Hydromax. In some cases.
Dynamic stability criteria
In some cases the criteria are expressed in terms of the so-called dynamic stability 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. 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. 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. is presented in quite different ways by different regulatory bodies. In this section we look at some common criteria and demonstrate how they may be evaluated in Hydromax. 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. Finally since the dynamic heeling arm is a straight line with constant slope we know that the corresponding heeling arm is a constant value. Furthermore. In Hydromax we have always sought to keep the physical significance transparent in the formulation – for this reason. The capsizing moment is taken as the magnitude of GZ at this tangent heel angle 2 . 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. at 2 . 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. 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.
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:

Hydromax uses an internal conversion of knots to m/s based on the International Nautical mile which is defined as exactly 1852m (International Hydrographic Conference. 1929). giving a conversion multiplier for knots to m/s of 0. This can easily be done in Hydromax using the GZ area derived heeling arm type 2 criterion.5144444..Appendix B
The magnitude of the heeling arm must be chosen so that Area 3 = Area 4
So the capsizing moment can also be determined by finding the heeling moment that gives Area3 = Area4. Thus 1 knot = 1852/3600 = 0..184m. the conversions for some common criteria have been explained..2.

Hydromax‟ wind heeling arm calculation uses H for the vertical height of the hydrodynamic centre (underwater area) and h as the vertical height of the aerodynamic centre (windage area) – all measured consistently from the zero point.

6. Specify a loadcase with the offset load specified and carry out an equilibrium analysis.3: Resistance to waves This criterion comprises two parts.
This section gives some details on implementing the ISO 12217 stability criteria in Hydromax.
Part 1: Non-sailing boats of hull length greater than or equal to 6m
In many cases the user must determine the required pass value for the criteria. Also determine the required wind speed and roll-back angle (depending on the design category) and enter these values.3.1.3: Resistance to wind and waves Determine the windage area and lever and enter them in the appropriate fields in the criterion.7 6.42m which is slightly greater than the height required for a category A vessel of 24m in length. there is no option for placing the height.3: Downflooding angle Must be greater than a certain value as determined according to the design category. See also the note on converting units for the definition of the heeling arms in ISO 122171:2002(E). Define a heeling arm and calculate the intersection of the heeling arm with the GZ curve to determine the angle of equilibrium.2: Downflooding height Minimum freeboard to downflooding points must be determined from Figures 2 and 3 (Section 6. one to check that the righting moment is sufficient and a second to determine whether the righting lever is sufficient.2) and entered into the required value field. In Hydromax. The default value is set to 49. 6. see Tables 3 and 4 (Sections 6. positive upwards). An additional requirement in this section is that a specified freeboard must be exceeded.Appendix F

This following explains how Formation Design Systems has verified that Hydromax gives accurate results and what steps we take to make sure that each version of the software we ship is as reliable as possible. verification of the underlying algorithms.
Quality Assurance
Many Hydromax users ask us how we know that Hydromax produces the correct results. we follow a series of engineering and testing principles and procedures to ensure that Hydromax will produce results which are consistent with the level of accuracy and thoroughness a professional engineer applies to design work. Without going into the technical details of our software development methodology.000 lines of code and we believe our history of reliability reflects the effort we have put into using reliable coding practices.Appendix B
Appendix F: Quality Assurance
This appendix describes the quality assurance processes used to ensure Hydromax gives reliable and accurate results. Hydromax is a complex software system of over 400. we first carry out testing on the algorithms on Reference Designs – these are proven test cases with known analytical solutions.
Verification of Algorithms
When new design or analysis algorithms are introduced into Hydromax. object oriented design.
Reference Designs
A folder of reference hull shapes is included with Maxsurf and Hydromax. we summarize by saying that we utilize structured code.
Quality Principles
While it is impossible to ensure that any software product is completely free of bugs. testing of real world problems inhouse and beta testing in the field at Hydromax user sites.
Page 309
. testing of the computer implementation of those algorithms. see Reference Calculations.
Structured Programming
The best defence against bugs in software is to use structured programming techniques that have been proven to improve software reliability. To this end we follow a development and testing path which includes use of structured programming techniques. data hiding and encapsulation and fault tolerant programming practices to enhance our software's reliability. Below is a table of results derived analytically from these shapes compared with results obtained from Maxsurf and Hydromax at different precisions. These designs are of simple geometric shapes and can be used to validate calculations performed by Hydromax.

However. A commercial release is a completed.6b2 The second beta test release of version 1. It is mostly reliable but may contain some bugs.0d1 The first development release of version 1. For example 1. An alpha release is a first public release of a program for initial testing and comment. as with all complex software systems.
Page 312
. A beta release is a final test version of the program released for field testing prior to commercial release.Appendix C
Testing of Implementation
Once the basic algorithms have been proven correct. If the version is a development. In the unlikely event of a problem being found. we conduct a beta test of the software. This involves sending the software to practicing engineers and having them use it on design work in progress to determine its reliability for actual design use.6 1. debugged program reliable and ready for professional use. These beta testers provide us with feedback on the reliability and accuracy of the program as well as its useability and suitability for everyday work.
Testing of Upgrades
As each new version of Hydromax is released we perform a series of tests to ensure it functions correctly.
Version Control
Each new version of Hydromax displays a version number indicating the version and the date the software was first shipped.
Beta Testing
Immediately prior to the release of each new version of Hydromax. 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. and send you a new corrected version of the program.5 1.64 A commercial release of version 1.5a2 The second alpha test release of version 1. AutoShip etc. it is not reliable. It is the users' responsibility to correctly model the structure and assume responsibility for the results. 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. It is highly experimental and not reliable. it is necessary for you to model the problem correctly and to correctly interpret the results produced. please contact our technical support staff by email at support@formsys. A development version is usually only for internal use and is a very early demonstration of a possible new product or feature.64
But we're not Perfect
We make every effort to ensure that our software will meet our users' needs and perform accurately. it is possible for errors to occur. we begin shipping the commercial version. To get accurate results from Hydromax.com and explain what you believe the problem to be. Once the beta test program is completed and all testers are happy with the program. testing is then carried out on more complex sample problems to which a solution has already been established using a proven analysis program. we will correct it as soon as practicable. If you suspect a problem with Hydromax.0 1. alpha test or beta test release. the version number may also include a letter and number suffix indicating the type and number of the release.
