As we know, Ship's Block Coeff. is calculated based on the molded hull form.
ie, Cb= Volume/(Lbp*B*d), where Volume is molded volume and B is molded
Breadth. In order to get the ship's exact displacement, I use a 'shell'
command in Part maker. As the ship's volume will have changed, it will no
longer be 'MOLDED Volume' of the hull. The Cb value calculated according to
this volume should not be correct.
Is there any solution to this problem?
How can I handle 'shell plate' as appendage that will not affect the hull
In order to get the form coefficients for the molded hull you have to create a
molded version of the geometry file. Here is one way to go about it:
\\Note: The following curves of form are based on the molded hull.\
COMPONENT HULL\HULL.C /FORM
Note that the curves of form go onto a separate report (file1). The same
report file could be used for the subsequent calculations by making use of the
/APPEND feature of the REPORT command.
