TANK CAPACITIES AND DAMAGED STABILITY COMPUTER PROGRAM MBO79
A computerized method is presented for computing the volumes, centers and free surface of any ship tank or space which can be defined by longitudinal or transverse bulkheads and the shell. Damaged stability calculations can be done using the lost buoyancy method by specifying an initial draft and flooded compartments. The program is part of the Hull Scientific Program Package which also consists of Floodable Length, Bonjeans, Hydrostatics, and Longitudinal Strength programs. Communication between the programs is accomplished through the use of a data file containing bonjeans data and offsets. Program is written in Fortran 4 and requires a memory of about 32,000 words.
