Section 3.1

Archimedes Principle:

The Buoyant Force on an object is equal to the weight of the volume of the water displaced by the object FB=rgV

Forces on a body in water

Distributed forces:

• Gravity: Distributed throughout volume of body based on mass density.
• Buoyancy: Distributed over wetted surface of body based on hydrostatic pressure
• Drag/Lift: Distributed over surface of body based on flow field when moving relative to medium

Static Equilibrium

åF=0

Weight, Buoyancy, Drag and Lift forces all sum to

zero in each dimension

åM=0

All forces in each dimension are colinear and cancel;

i.e. there are no separation of the action points of

forces such that couples or moments are generated.

Example Problem

A boxed shaped barge 50ft wide, 100ft long, and 15ft deep has 10ft of freeboard in sea water:

• What is its draft?
• What is the hydrostatic pressure (psi) acting on the barge’s keel?
• What is the magnitude (LT) of the total hydrostatic force acting on the barge’s keel?
• What is the weight (LT) of the water displaced by the barge?
• Assuming that the buoyant force acts through a single point, what is the location of that point in 3 dimensions?
• Assuming minimum freeboard is 5ft, how many ft³ of coal at 50lb/ft³ can we load on the barge in seawater?
• If we then take the barge into freshwater, what will the new draft be?

Draft=Depth-Freeboard=15ft-10ft=5ft

Phyd=rgz=64lb/ft³×5ft×[1ft²/144in²]=2.22psi

Fhyd=Phyd×A=2.22lb/in²×50ft×100ft×[144in²/ft²]×[1LT/2240lb]=714LT

w=rgV=64lb/ft³×50ft×100ft×5ft×[1LT/2240lb]=714LT

Center of Buoyancy=at amidships, on centerline, 2.5ft above keel

TPI=AWP[ft²]{LT/in}/420=50ft×100ft/420{LT/in}=11.9LT/in

Change in draft=10ft-5ft=5ft×[12in/ft]=60in

Change in weight=60in×11.9LT/in=714LT

V=w/rg=714LT/(50lb/ft³)×2240lb/LT=32,000ft³

Current draft=TSW=10ft

w=rgSWVSW=64lb/ft³×50ft×100ft×10ft=3,200,000lb

VFW=w/rgFW=3,200,000lb/62.4lb/ft³=51,280ft³

TFW=VFW/AWP=51,280ft³/(50ft×100ft)=10.26ft

Increased draft means reduced freeboard below minimum spec

Section 3.2

Center of Mass/Gravity

The weighted average over area or volume based on given distribution summed such that result is equivalent to the total force applied through a single point.

What can change the Center of Gravity?

• Move weight/change distribution
Notation:

G=Location of Center of Gravity for ship

g=Location of Center of Gravity for object

Ds= Displacement of ship (LT)

W = Magnitude of Gravitational Force/Weight of object (LT)

• So far we’ve looked at ships that are in STATIC EQUILIBRIUM:
• SFx = 0
• SFy = 0
• SFz = 0
• SMp = 0

Now let’s take a look at what happens when a weight is added

to disturb this equilibrium

the location of G, the center of gravity of the ship

• A change in VCG (or KG)
• A change in the TCG

• In this unique case, Dsnew and Dsoldand are the SAME THING!
• w1 and w2 are also the same thing!
• The weight has only moved, not been removed
• So we can rearrange the formula:

...This is ONLY for a single vertical weight shift!!

Ds GnewGold =

w g2g1

Where:

• GnewGoldis the distance between the old and new CG’s
• g2g1 is the distance between the old and new Cg locations
• of the relocated weight

...This relation will become important in the Inclining Experiment

We can generalize the formula for vertical changes

in CG by the following:

Example:

• Given
• USS CURTS (FFG-38) floats on an even keel at a draft of 17ft
• KG = 19.5ft
• Lpp = 408ft
• It takes on 150LT of fresh water in a tank 6ft above the keel on the CL
• Find
• New vertical center of gravity (KG) after taking on water

Step 1: Draw picture!

Step 2: Find Ds when floating at 17ft draft

• Go to curves of form for FFG in appendix
• Using curve 1, find the intersection w/ 17ft

Ds = 147 x 30LT

Ds = 4410LT

Step 3: Write the GENERAL Equation

Dsoldx KGold

KGnew =

4410LT x 19.5ft + 150LT x 6ft

4410LT + 150LT

KGnew =

86215.5 LT-ft + 900LT-ft

KGnew =

Step 4: Substitute in values into the general equation

87115.5 LT-ft

KGnew =

KGnew =

CHECK: Does this answer make sense?

YES! The CG shifts toward the added weight, lower than the original CG

Example Problem

A 688 Class Submarine is in port, pier side undergoing a maintenance period. The tender will be pulling periscopes tomorrow which requires the ship to maintain zero list, i.e. TCG=0ft.

The Engineering Dept needs to pump #2RFT dry to perform a tank inspection. What impact will this have on the sub’s TCG?

The sub has 10 MK 48 ADCAP torpedoes at 2LT each. How far and in which direction should these torpedoes be shifted to restore the sub’s TCG to zero?

Data: Do=6900LT Tcg#2RFT= -12ft (i.e. port of centerline);

TCGo=0ft Capacity#2RFT=5000galfw

w#2RFT=rgV

=5000gal×[1ft³/7.4805gal]×rgfw =668.4ft³×62.4lb/ft³×[1LT/2240lb] =18.62LT

Df= D0+Swa-Swr=6900LT-19LT=6881LT

TCGf =(TCG0D0+STcgawa-STcgrwr)/Df=(0ft×6900LT-[-12ft]×19LT)/6881LT =0.033ft (stbd of centerline) (Removed weight from port side)

TCGf=(TCG0D0+STcgawa-STcgrwr)/Df

0ft=(0.033ft×6881LT+dTcg×10torps×2LT/ torp)/6881LT

dTcg = -(0.033ft×6881LT)/20LT = -11.4ft (to port)

Shift 10 torpedoes each 11.4ft to port to compensate for the loss of weight on the port side of the sub.

A rocking chair’s “skids” have a radiusof curvature of 3ft. The chair’s initial center of gravity is 2.5ft above the skids. A box is put on the seat which raises the combined center of gravity to 3ft above the skids. Another box is put on top of the first which raises the combined center of gravity to 3.5ft above the skids.

• For each of these conditions, when the chair is tipped 45°, show how the forces of gravity and support are spatially related and predict how the chair will react when released.
• What point in this scenario is analogous to a ship’s metacenter?

G1

G1: Support is outboard center of gravity creating a couple which returns the chair upright.

G2: Support is aligned with center of gravity eliminating any couple. The chair maintains position.

G3: Support is inboard center of gravity creating a couple which tips the chair over.

The center of curvature of the rocking chair’s “skids” correspond to a ship’s metacenter.

With that fact understood, we can now determine the ANGLE OF LIST

How?

• G0G1is the change in the transverse Center of Gravity

Example:

The USS Simpson (FFG-56) floats on an even keel at a 16ft draft. The

KG is 20ft above the keel. After 1 week, 50LT of fuel has been used from

a tank 11ft to port and 15ft above the keel.

Find the angle of list after the fuel has been used.

Step 1: Find the ship’s displacement

From the curves of form, curve #1, 16ft draft crosses at 132

132 x 30LT = 3960LT

KG1 = Ds0x KG0 - (w x Kg)

Ds1

KG1 = 3960LT x 20ft - (50LT x 15ft)

(3960 - 50)LT

KG1 = 78,450LT-ft

3910LT

Step 2: Find the new vertical CG (KG)

KG1 = 20.06ft

TCG1 = Ds0x TCG0 - (w x Tcg)

Ds1

TCG1 = 3960LT x 0ft - (50LT x -11ft)

(3960 - 50)LT

TCG1 = 0 - (-550LT-ft)

3910LT

Step 3: Find the Transverse CG (TCG)

(minus because it’s to port)

TCG1 = 0.141ft

(shifts to starboard, away from

removed weight)

G0G1 is the change in the Transverse CG:

• G0 = 0 (on the centerline)
• G1 = .141ft

G0G1 = .141ft

• G0MT =KMT - KG0
• KMT from curves is 113 x .2ft = 22.6ft
• KG0 = 20ft

G0MT = 2.6ft

Step 4: Define lengths of G0G1 and G0MT

MT

tan f = opposite

tan f = G0G1

Section 3.5The Inclining Experiment

In the previous section, we derived the relationship between a shift in weight and the resultant list/trim angle:

tan(F) = wt/(DG0MT)

• w,t are the weight and distance moved – usually known
• The location of MT and the magnitude of D are properties of the hull shape read from the Curves of Form for the appropriate draft (T).
• How do we find the location of G0?
How do we find the location of G0?

We determine it experimentally after new construction for a class or any major permanent complex weight redistributions for a given ship (alteration/conversion).

Inclining Experiment Procedure:

1. Configure the ship in a “light” condition

2. Bring on large weights (~2% of Dship), move to known distances port and starboard of centerline and measure tan(F) using “plum bob”. Measure & record Dincl using draft and Curves of Form.

3. Plot wt vs. tan(F); divide slope by Dincl to get GinclMT

4. Calculate KGincl = KMT(from Curve of Form)–GinclMT

5. KG0=KGlight=(KGinclDincl–Kginclwtswinclwts)/(Dincl–winclwts)

Bo

L

FB

This is done by the Inclining Experiment

By using a known weight and placing it at a known distance

an angle of list can be measured

By repeating this process - port and starboard- we can

graph the relationship between the moment created by the

weight and the angle of inclination

This will allow an average inclined KG to be determined,

and from that a KG for the ship in an condition of no list or

trim can be established

tan F = G0G1

G0MT

In earlier discussions an equation was derived for a shift in of

a single weight:

Ds G0G1 = w g0g1

…where g0g1 was the distance that the weight was shifted. Let’s call that distance “t”. Sooo,...

Ds G0G1 = wt

And re-look at the equation for the angle of list:

tan F = G0G1

G0MT

Ds G0G1 = wt

G0G1 = wt

Ds

G0MT tan F = G0G1

wt

Ds

G0MT tan F =

Note that the common term in both equations is G0G1. So

let’s isolate it in each equation:

wt

tan FDs

G0MT =

wt

Ds

G0MT tan F =

That’s nice,… but not nice enough... One more rearrangement

and we’ll have what we really want, G0MT:

wt

tan FDs

G0MT =

• Let’s review what we know:
• “w” is a known weight that is relocated
• “t” is the distance the weight is moved
• “tan f” is the angle created by the weight shift
• “Ds” is the displacement of the ship

This will be the formula that governs the Inclining Experiment

wt

tan FDs

G0MT =

• In the Inclining Experiment:
• The distance “t” is varied, changing the angle of list, tan f
• “w” and Ds will remain constant
• By varying t, thus varying the created moment of wt,

the angle of inclination will change

By plotting wt versus tan f, you can determine the average G0MT

wt

G0MT =

=

(slope of wt vstan F curve)

Ds

AverageG0MT =

Remember, slope is Dy/Dx:

Or...

So...

(slope of wt vstan F curve)

Ds

AverageG0MT =

When you vary the distance t, and thus the moment, you’ll vary the inclination

angle. The result is plotted in an example here:

The slope of the “best fit” line, Dy/Dx, when divided by the displacement,

will give the average G0MT distance:

Having found the AverageG0MT, you can find the KG when the

ship is loaded with the inclining weight:

KG = KMT - G0MT

KG light = KG inclinedxDs old - Kg x w

Ds new

The problem now degenerates to a simple “’change in vertical

center of gravity, KG, equation:

KG light, the KG of the ship with considering the ship’s weight only-

no crew, stores, fuel, etc.- is what we wanted!!

In Summary:

• Using a known weight and a measured distance, a moment is created
• The moment creates a list that can be measured
• By repeating the process with the same weight over different distances and plotting the results, the average G0MT can be found
• Once G0MT is found, you can find KG of the light ship
Example Problem
• The USS OHIO has just completed her Overhaul and Conversion from an SSBN to an SSGN and Special Operations Forces platform. She is pierside performing a required Inclining Experiment. Dlightship=18700LT; KMT=21ft. The inclining gear weighs 400LTs and is centered 47ft above the keel. 375LTs is moved to the following transverse distances resulting in the corresponding list angles.Distance to Starboard(ft) List Angle(°) -50 -12.8 -25 -6.4 0 0 25 6.5 50 12.7

What is KGlight?

Multiply transverse distances by 375LT to get inclining moment. Take tangent of list angle and plot the two derived sets of data against one another:

Slope=(18750-[-18750]LT-ft)/(.225-[-.227]) =83000LT-ft

GMTincl=slope/Dincl=83000LT-ft/19100LT =4.35ft

KGinc l=KMT-GMTincl=21ft-4.35ft=16.65ft

KGlight =(KGinclDincl-Kgwtswwts)/Dlight =(16.65ft×19100LT-47ft×400LT)/18700LT =16ft

The difference between the fore and aft drafts is the change in trim:

represent the new position.

dTaft is below the WL, so it’s subtracted. dTfwd is above the waterline, so it’s added to the draft.

1. Change in draft due to the parallel sinkage of the vessel due to the added weight, “w”:

dTPS = w

TPI

2. Change in draft due to the moment created by the added weight

at a distance from F, or “wl”:

dTrim = wl

MT1”

There are two aspects of draft to consider when finding the change in draft:

These two measurements- change due to parallel sinkage and

change in trim due to moment- when added with the initial

draft will give you the TOTAL draft, forward and aft:

dTrim = wl

dTPS = w

TPI

Tfwd new = Tfwdold +/- dTPS +/- dTrim

AND

Taft new = Taftold +/- dTPS +/- dTrim

dTPS = w

TPI

• TPI, Tons Per Inch Immersion is a geometric function of the vessel at
• a given draft and is taken from the Curves of Form
• The added weight, w, will cause the vessel to “sink” a small distance for
• the length of the entire vessel
• We assume that the weight is applied at F! This assures that the sinkage
• is uniform over the length of the ship

weight:

dTrim = wl

MT1”

MT1”, or the Moment to Trim 1”, is also from the Curves of Form

The weight, w, at a distance, l, from the center of flotation, F, creates

a moment that causes the ship to rotate about F

This rotation causes one end to sink and the other end to rise

The degree of rise or fall depends on the location of F with regard to

the entire length of the ship as given by Lpp

dTrim = wl

The value for dTrim will be for the entire length of the ship:

For these similar triangles there is a ratio aspect that relates to each:

(The short leg divided by the long leg of the triangle!)

Knowing how to find the change in draft from both parallel sinkage and from the induced moment, you can now find the total draft change, fore and aft:

Tfwd new = Tfwdold +/- dTPS +/-dT

AND

Taft new = Taftold +/- dTPS +/-dT

Calculating Draft Changes

Procedure:

• Calculate impact of weight addition/removal to mean draft using TPI.
• Calculate impact of weight addition/removal to trim at given distance from center of floatation.
• Calculate trim effect on fwd and aft drafts separately.

Section 3.8: Dry Docking

How is the ship’s weight shared between docking blocks and buoyant force?

Requirements for Static Equilibrium still apply:

• SF=0; SM=0
• SFV=(-)D+FB+Fblocks=0
• FB=rgÑS
• D =rgÑS+ Fblocks
• Since ship’s weight remains constant, as hull comes out of water, submerged volume decreases, hence buoyant force decreases, and force from the blocks increases.
• (P= Fblocks)
Dry-Docking

If a list develops during docking, the increasing force from the blocks can work to capsize the ship

Solutions:

• Use side blocks to force a zero list
• Stop docking evolution and correct problem, if ship develops an increasing list

Impact on Stability

Consider force of blocks to be the same as a weight removal from the keel:

• What is the impact on KG and GMT?
• Df= D0-wr= D0-P
• Ship’s weight/displacement is decreased
• KGfDf= KG0D0-Kgrwr, but Kgr=0;
• KGfDf= KG0D0;
• KGf= KG0D0/Df= KG0D0/(D0-P);
• Center of Gravity moves up due to keel weight removal
• GMT= KMT – KGf
• Shorter distance between Center of Gravity and Metacenter gives less distance to develop a righting moment
Comparison to Grounding:

Same stability concerns for both evolutions although grounding is obviously not planned or controlled.

Since re-floating after grounding is generally not on level sea bed with a zero list, it should only be done at highest available tide to maximize buoyant force and righting moment and avoid capsizing.

Floating the Ship

Undocking has the same concerns as docking plus:

• The Center of Gravity may have been shifted by the work done in dock.
• All holes in the ship below the waterline need to be confirmed properly closed.

Recovery from grounding concerns:

• The Center of Gravity may have been changed by flooded or damaged compartments.
• When ship floats again, damage previously held above the water could be submerged resulting in further damage.
Example Problem

DD963 is preparing to enter drydock. It is currently moored pier side on an even keel and a draft of 18.5 feet. To ensure that the sonar dome rests properly on the blocks, the forward draft of the ship must be Tf=17.5 feet. How much ballast must be removed from a tank located 100 feet forward of amidship? Give the answer in gallons of saltwater.

Tfinal fwd= Tinitial fwd± w/TPI ± wl/MT1”×Dfwd/Lpp

= w/TPI ± wl/MT1”×Dfwd/Lpp =(17.5ft-18.5ft)×12in/ft= -12 in

=-w/(50LT/in) – w(125ft)/(1400ft-LT/in)×257.5ft/465ft= (-)12in

-12 in = -w/(50LT/in) – w/(20.23LT/in)

= -w/(14.4LT/in)

w= -12in×(-14.4LT/in)=172.8LT

Daft=207.5ft

Dfwd=257.5ft

V=w/(rg)=172.8LT/[(64lb/ft³)×2240lb/LT×7.4805gal/ft³]=45,243gal

This is just another application of moments!

Example Problem

An FFG-7 is in the process of undocking when the evolution is halted at 10ft of water on the hull.

• If D=3600LT, how much weight is being supported by the blocks?
• If the water level is raised 1in, how much additional weight is removed from the blocks?

At T=10ft, FB= 62×30LT = 1860LT;

P=D-FB=3600LT-1860LT = 1740LT

At T=10ft, TPI=128×0.2LT/in = 25.6LT/in;

Raising water level 1in removes an additional 25.6LT from the blocks
