Hydrostatics & Ballasting Samples
This collection of samples considers hydrostatic and ballasting.

BSTAB:

This is the first sample of the tutorial. It computes basic stability and ballasting. These files are further discussed as part of the workbook A Gentle Introduction to MOSES.

BSTAB_DBA:

This test case is the same as BSTAB, except it shows how to use the DATABASE command. The command saves the calculated data to a SQL database file.

DLOAD:

This sample shows the use of the allowable deck load macro.

FS_MOM:

This sample shows how the GM is dependent on the compartment filling flag. The compartment filling flag controls free surface moment. These files are further discussed as part of the workbook A Gentle Introduction to MOSES.

I_STAB:

This sample shows the use of the installation macros for stability. These files are further discussed as part of the workbook A Gentle Introduction to MOSES.

INCLINE:

This sample shows the use of the incline macros.

M_STAB:

This sample shows the use of the general purpose stability macros. These files are further discussed as part of the workbook A Gentle Introduction to MOSES.

PCOMP:

This sample changes the ballasting in wcomp to something more realistic. These files are further discussed as part of the Tutorials.

STATIC_OPEN:

This sample shows how to use the -open_valve command to let water into compartments. The compartments start out empty. Sensors are used to open the valve when it is determined the valve is under water.

WCOMP:

This sample takes BSTAB as an starting point and adds features to it. These files are further discussed as part of the workbook A Gentle Introduction to MOSES.

Y_RARM:

This test computes the righting arms of a box shaped vessel in a damaged condition. This is a companion file to the yaw_axis set of files. This set of results shows values under roll column that correspond to an axis yawed 45 degrees from the defined body axis in the data file.

YAW_AXIS:

This test finds the equilibrium position for the damage condition corresponding in the y_rarm files. The equilibrium condition found here corresponds to the static heel without wind output in the y_rarm files.
