GHS Bug Report


Versions affected:

18.92 and prior


Program areas affected:

TORQUE command output in GHS


Discussion:

The integration of the torque density curve was not correct for sloped segments. These could be caused by tank loads where the sectional area of adjacent stations differs or by non-uniform distributed weights. The issue was mostly masked by the linear correction factor which is applied as a function of longitudinal location to ensure that the torque is zero at the vessel ends. Very tight station spacing also mitigates the effect of the bug.


Updates:

GHS.EXE version 18.94 or later is available; please contact Creative Systems for download instructions.
