What a marine surveyor needs to know about metacentric stability, the inclining experiment, heel and rolling tests ebook

£10.00

This handy guide, authored by Elliott Berry, a Fellow of the International Institute of Marine Surveying, covers an area that for many marine surveyors remains something of a dark art. Yet understanding stability and the theory and practice of why a vessel floats is something all surveyors must understand.

The handy guide is presented in four distinct parts:

Part 1 – The inclining experiment
Part 2 – A typical inclining experiment report for a steel yacht
Part 3 – An approximate determination of a small vessel’s stability by means of the rolling period tests
Part 4 – The statical stability and stability criteria

An experienced practicing marine surveying practitioner, Elliott presents the theory using a number of formulae backed by helpful diagrams and illustrations to show what the marine surveyor should do and be aware of when conducting inclining experiments and heel tests.

What a marine surveyor needs to know about metacentric stability, the inclining experiment, heel and rolling tests is an essential companion for experienced and less experienced surveyors alike.  

What a marine surveyor needs to know about metacentric stability, the inclining experiment, heel and rolling tests runs to 36 pages

Only available in downloadable pdf format.
