OVERVIEW

The course provides the concepts necessary to study problems related to floatability, equilibrium and stability of a floating body.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to provide knowledge of the concepts and issues regarding the buoyancy , balance and stability of a floating body .

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Concepts related to floatability, equilibrium and stability of a floating body

 

TEACHING METHODS

The course is composed by theoretical lectures and courseworks.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course provides the concepts and tools in order to evaluate the geometrical characteristics of an hull and to solve the problem of equilibrium of weight and buoyancy, considering also equilibrium stability.

 

The first part of the course deals with the definition of the geometrical elements (hull centres and equations); the second part is devoted to the equilibrium equations and the evaluation of stability; the third part is related to typical applications (weight loading or unloading, weight movements, etc.).
