About mid-1976 when the trial results of 378 ships were available, it was decided to check and correct the existing diagrams of DHP-tank allowances based on the Froude extrapolation method. The data were subjected to regression analysis and as a result the curves for wind forces from 0 to 3 Beaufort could be extended to 320,000 tons ship displacement. Beaufort forces were actually extrapolated to a displacement of 500,000 tons, but these values have to be considered with some reserve. A graph of the relation between wind force and allowances on DHP-tank for ships with a trial displacement ranging from 1,000 to 320,000 metric tons is included. Order from BSRA as No. 49,250.
