A RIGOROUS PRACTICAL METHOD TO COMPUTE THE EFFECTS OF THE FREE SURFACE IN THE SHIP FOR FLUID WEIGHTS

It is important to improve the investigation of the effect of the free surfaces due to fluid weights in the transverse and longitudinal stability of a ship. The changes in parameters of metacentric height, heel and trim, roll and pitch, and the GZ arm for large angles of roll, are considered, and also, a correction to the mean draught for displacement purposes. For a ship's master, and in order to obtain rigorous information of the free surface, this information has been covered with actual data from ships, with the final objective of developing a practical method.
