Tank Capacities Tank Capacities

To compute tank capacities, the user should issue a command of the form:


     TANK_CAPACITY, TNAME, INC, -OPTIONS

Where the options available are:



     -ROLL, ROLL_ANGLE


     -PITCH, PITCH_ANGLE

When this command is issued, MOSES will compute the weight, volume, and center of the compartment name TNAME in increments of INC (feet or meters). Normally, it is assumed that the vessel has zero roll and pitch. This can be changed, however, with either of the two options. The angles one specifies here are in degrees. At the conclusion of the command, the user is again placed in the Disposition Menu so that he can dispose of the results.
