Categorizing Ships (2.2)
Hydrodynamic Support - Supported by
moving water. At slower speeds, they
are hydrostatically supported
Planing Vessels - Hydrodynamics pressure
developed on the hull at high speeds to
support the vessel. Limited loads, high power
requirements.
Hydrofoils - Supported by underwater foils, like
wings on an aircraft. Dangerous in heavy seas.

Archimedes Principle
Archimedes Principle - An object partially or
fully submerged in a fluid will experience a
resultant vertical force equal in magnitude to
the weight of the volume of fluid displaced by
the object.

Trim is defined as the change in draft aft minus

## the change in draft forward.

If the ship starts level and trims so that the
forward draft increases by 2 inches and the aft
draft decreases by 1 inch, the trim would be -3
inches.

## HULL FORM AND GEOMETRY

Curves of Form (2.10.1.7)
Since a ship is typically wider at the stern than at
the bow, the center of flotation will typically be
aft of midships.
This means that when a ships trims, it will
typically have a greater change in the forward
draft than in the after draft.

## HULL FORM AND GEOMETRY

KML : (A measure of pitch stability)
The distance in feet from the keel to the

This distance is on the order of one hundred to

the keel to the transverse metacenter is only
on the order of ten to thirty feet.

## HULL FORM AND GEOMETRY

Curves of Form (2.10.1.8)
KMT: (A measure of roll stability)
This is the distance in feet from the keel to the
transverse metacenter.
Typically, Naval Architects do not bother
putting the subscript T for any property in
the transverse direction because it is assumed
that when no subscript is present the
transverse direction is implied.
