Can progressive flooding be modeled?
Can Progressive flooding be modeled with GHS? For example, if damage to one
compartment at higher displacement or heel may or may not submerge an opening
on the deck in another compartment.
You can do this type of progressive flooding through the DAMAGED tank type.
When a tank is in the DAMAGED mode, its Reference Point is used as the "point
of damage". It actually goes between being intact and flooded, depending on
whether its Reference Point is above or below the outside waterplane.
