Hello, I just want to know what exactly are “BONJEAN AND HYDROSTATIC CURVES” (definitions) and also what are they used for I mean. For more accuracy and larger trims the Bonjean curves can be used. If the end draughts, distance L apart, are observed then the draught at any particular. bonjean curve. Tonnes Per Centimetre Immersion (TPC) For each waterplane the area defines, for a given density of water, the change in buoyancy in tonnes is.

Michael MarquardtNov 10, I have an interview coming up What excuse will you find now?. Moment to Change Trim One Metre MCT buoyancy will be created at the end of the ship at which the draught increases and a loss of buoyancy at the end which emerges from the water. Tom PappasMar 20, Wilding mentions the Bonjean Vonjean method but does not provide any further details or clarification. They retain Wilding’s permeability figures as given in the BOT inquiry, but also state ” Subject to strike and lockout clause.

No, create an account bonjexn. Please tell us where you read or heard it including the quote, if possible. The crew of non-UK officers and ratings are to join two days later.

Dennie BeickerSep 22, Bonjean curves are simply plots of the section areas versus draft for different stations in the hull of a vessel. Not a very intelligent answer using my mistake for not answering. Beaufort wind scale Force 1. Think of them as the layers curve frosting in a multi-layer wedding cake.


A plot of the above data against draught gives rise to a set of curves known as the hydrostatic curves or hydrostatics. The formula is too complex for me to try to cuves. The other form that is sometimes used is TPI, standing for tonnes per unit immersion.

Hydrostatic Curves

I could continue with this peroration but others are advising me to end it now, their reasoning being that the arrival of the Horlicks trolley is imminent. In other words, he introduced what is called “expectation error. JonesMar 21, The student will now appreciate why, in the previous bonnean, the transverse and longitudinal inertias of the waterplane were mentioned. They are not a theoretical construct, but a realistic method of describing vessels.

From the determined rate of inundation and the capacity of the pumps to meet it he was able to give Captain Smith such a time. I cannot see however that such a retrospective calculation had any material bearing on the casualty or the prevention of future such casualties.

Thus, the buoyancy force of the extra water will directly oppose the added weight with no moment to cause the ship to trim. Just what is Wilding’s margin for error? Hydrostatics Calculator for Solidworks laukejasOct 13,in forum: In a similar way, the immersed area of each transverse section up to each waterplane can be found.

By definition, as the CF is the centroid of area of the waterplane, the area of waterplane forward of the CF equals that aft of the CF. Customarily, a ship is divided into a number of equidistant stations, usually ten note that these stations are not necessarily coincident with her watertight bulkheads.


Bonjean Curve Method

Free hydrostatic software for Mac Rosco99Oct 7,in forum: They are normally plotted as a fair cure on a profile of the ship. Better recourse would be had to her ‘floodable length’ a known quantity, being that flooded length which takes her down to her margin bonmean and no further.

Considering ucrves infinitely variable conditions of lading of such as a tweendeck or lower hold containing general cargo, once you get past the cutves stage ‘permeability’ must border on wild guesswork. Why do some cargo ships have more than one set of load lines marked, i. Daved, Noel, while I’m no mathmatician, I’m not having a problem following what you two are saying. Noel — this discussion is so entertaining that perhaps we could take our act on the road.

It then becomes possible to read off the immersed areas by drawing lines parallel with the baseline curevs the intercept of the waterline with the section to the Bonjean curve for that section. The unit of draught change considered is one centimetre, giving the tonnes per cm immersion TPC.

Wilding new his his calculations that were at fault, so he turned to “massaging” the data.
