IS THE SHIP'S DEADWEIGHT A PROBABILISTIC VALUE?

The author explains why a ship's deadweight is a probabilistic value. He presents a mathematical model for the statistical analysis of deadweight. This is followed by a discussion of the influence of the elastic properties of the ship hull on deadweight, and by mention of the importance of the influence on deadweight of errors in draft measurement. A numerical example is presented that takes into account the uncertainties considered.
