CHEMICAL CARRIERS: DAMAGE STABILITY INVESTIGATION

Provides the shipping industry with some guidance regarding the IMCO Chemical Carriers code, Resolution A212 (VII). It deals particularly with the requirements of the code regarding Damage Stability and buoyancy. The code has set a major precedent in this field since the International Loadline Convention 1966 (Regulation 27), by providing well defined criteria to be met. Due to the amount and complexity of flooding calculations contemplated in the code, quite a number of problems have been raised by possible interpretations of the code. To help resolve some of these questions the Bureau Veritas note describes the general procedure to carry out the required calculation as well as the societies own opinions and interpretations by means of sample computation of actual flooding cases. The guidance note will be of assistance to naval architects and ship owners concerned with the actual application of the code.
