TOSSING CHARACTERISTICS AND THE SELECTION OF PRINCIPAL PARTICULARS FOR SEAGOING TIMBER CARRIERS

Rolling characteristics are important to oceangoing timber carriers from the standpoint of stability reserve during the carriage of timber and of the effectiveness with which the vessel can be utilized to transport non-timber cargoes when violent heavy rolling develops as a result of high initial metacentric height. Rolling also produces heaving and pitching, as well as linear and rolling accelerations, in areas of a ship that are distant from the center of gravity. This can affect how crew members feel and their fitness for work. It is extremely important that the principal dimensions, dimension relationships and hull form coefficients selected during initial design be evaluated from the viewpoint of predicted linear acceleration and rolling characteristics. A methodology for carrying out this evaluation is developed.
