THE CORRELATION OF SHIP HULL FORM AND HER STATIC STABILITY DIAGRAM

The correlation between the ship hull form and her static stability diagram (SD) is theoretically investigated. The value of metacentric height (MH), named "critical", at which SD changes from "hard" to "soft" type, is obtained. Three special ship hull forms are investigated (body of revolution, body with vertical side walls and parallelepiped-form body), and exact formulae are gained. The approximate formulae to calculate "critical" MH for real hull forms are given. The inverse problem is investigated: how to determine appropriate hull form for a given SD. Two special hull forms, that provide exact solutions, are studied, and the solution for bi-similar ship hull form is discussed in detail.
