## What is Bonjean table?

Bonjean curve: a curve formed by plotting transverse sectional areas measured up to each waterline against a vertical axis representing the waterline; thus the horizontal distance measured from the curve to the vertical axis gives the area of the section from the baseline to that particular waterline; usually sets of …

**What is a hydrostatic curve?**

marine. A series of graphs drawn to a vertical scale of draught and a base of length, which gives values such as the centre of buoyancy, displacement, moment causing unit trim, and centre of flotation.

### What is cross curves of stability?

Cross curves of stability is a set of curves from which the KN values for a set of constant heel-angle values at any particular displacement may be read. Thus, we have a curve for heel angle of 10°, next for 20° and so on.

**What is a GZ curve?**

The curve of statical stability, or GZ curve as it is most commonly referred to, is a graphical representation of the ship’s transverse statical stability.

## What is sectional area curve?

A curve whose ordinates are areas of cross sections up to a given waterline corresponding to each point in the length.

**How do you calculate hydrostatic draft?**

So, we have computed the draft from the hydrostatics table. However, this draft is measured at the LCF (Longitudinal Center of Floatation) of the vessel which is close to the midship and is also called the mean draft….Hydrostatic Properties – Draft.

Displacement | Draft |
---|---|

D1 = 1994 | T1 = 1.25 |

D2 = 2249 | T2 = 1.4 |

D = 2240 | T =? |

### What is GM in ship stability?

The distance between G and M is known as the metacentric height (GM). A stable vessel when upright is said to have a positive metacentric height (GM), i.e. when the metacentre (M) is found to be above the centre of gravity (G). This is usually referred to as having a positive GM or a positive initial stability.

**What is GZ in stability?**

GZ is known as the righting arm. The plot of the righting arm GZ calculated as the function of the heel angle, at constant displacement and vertical centre of gravity KG values, is used to measure the ship stability at large angles of heels. It is called the curve of statical stability.

## What is km stability?

KM is the distance from the keel to the metacentre. Stable floating objects have a natural rolling frequency, just like a weight on a spring, where the frequency is increased as the spring gets stiffer.

**How do you calculate GZ?**

GZ=GM sin φ and is called the righting lever. GM is known as the metacentric height. For a given position of G, as M can be taken as fixed for small inclinations, GM will be constant for any particular waterline.

### What is GZ in ship stability?

The vessel’s centre of gravity (G) has a distinct effect on the righting lever (GZ) and consequently the ability of a vessel to return to the upright position. The lower the centre of gravity (G), the bigger is the righting lever (GZ).

**Where can I find Bonjean data in table form?**

The Bonjean data appear in table form in the ship’s specific stability booklet (hydrostatic particulars). The following is given for each ordinate and waterline: The distance from basis to waterline for each ordinate (section). For each water- line, the area of the submerged part of the ordinate.

## What is the Bonjean curve of section?

The Bonjean Curve of Section is a fair curve generated by wrangling the ‘five, eight, minus one’ rule on a tabulated work sheet in accordance with the formulae handed down to us by M.Bonjean.

**Why did Wilding use Bonjean curves?**

Wilding probably took recourse to Bonjean curves because the soundings book did not survive to help him, curvss assuming it was filled in the damage control soundings probably arrived at the bridge on such as the back of a fag packet in the time-honoured manner. They are normally plotted as a fair cure on a profile of the ship.
