Description

Diploma in ship stability is a free online course that begins by introducing you to the history of adaptive and variant designs in ships. This course will introduce you to the contributions of computational fluid dynamics along with ship model testing. This course will teach you about the principal dimensions of a vessel used for performing basic calculations. You will learn about the definition, functions, and calculation of the Wetted Surface Area (WSA). The definition, principles, calculation, and practical application of hydrostatic pressure will be covered in this course. You will be introduced to the four coefficients of importance needed to understand the basics of ship stability along with their formulas. This course will teach you about the numerical calculations for the waterplane area, sectional area, and submerged volume. You will learn about the brief history and concepts of Simpson’s rules. The characteristics, applications, and equations of Simpson’s 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rules will be covered in this course. This course will also introduce you to the calculations for the moment of area, the moment of inertia, and the moment of volume. The formula for finding the waterplane area using Simpson’s three rules, as well as the trapezoidal rule will also be covered in this course.

This course then explains the concepts and definition of buoyancy, together with the principle of floatation. You will learn about the concepts and characteristics of displacement tonnage. This course will teach you about the two constituents of displacement which include; light and load-displacement. The concepts and functions of deadweight will also be covered in this course. You will also learn about the relationship between the waterplane area and tons per inch, along with the effect of tons per inch on the ship’s draft. This course then explains the concepts, functions, and calculations of trim and moment to change the trim by 1 inch. You will learn about the functions of fresh watermarks for the ship. The content, readings, and importance of hydrostatic curves will also be covered in this course. This course also explains the functions of hydrostatic tables, as well as the concept and functions of the hydrostatic draft. You will learn about the position and working principle of the centre of floatation. This course then explains the calculation of BM and KM. The principles of transverse statical stability will also be covered in this course. This course then explains the moments of statical stability at small and large angles of the heel. This course will give you a better understanding of the angle of loll, as well as the correction of the angle of loll.

Furthermore, this course will help you get familiar with the illustration, construction, and interpretation of the curve of statical stability. You will learn about the use of the curve of intact statical stability to determine stability data and range of stability. This course will teach you about the shift in the centre of gravity due to removing, adding, and shifting a single weight. You will also be familiar with the concepts and differences between stiff and tender vessels. This course will also help you get familiar with the calculation of the free surface correction due to slack tanks. You will learn about the Moment to Change Trim (MCTI). This course will teach you about the concepts of bilging, as well as the four ways in which bilging can. You will also be familiar with the concepts of permeability and permeability of various compartments. The intact stability requirements and SOLAS general requirements will also be covered in this course. You will then learn about the importance of the damage control plan and damage stability booklet. The effect of flooding and corrective actions to take, and the concepts of dewatering will also be covered in this course. You will also be familiar with the functions and operations of hydraulically operated watertight doors, as well as the cross-flooding arrangement.
