Hydro now includes a powerful feature that greatly enhances its usefulness to designers and others needing to analyze the hydrostatics of vessels. With version 5.0.19, you have the freedom to specify a vessel’s center of gravity to be positioned anywhere using all three dimensions. You are no longer limited to having the CG located on the vessel’s centerline. When specifying an off-center CG, Hydro will automatically equilibrate the vessel to the correct equilibrium heel angle. In addition, Hydro can calculate the stability curve for a vessel whose CG is off-center for any range of heel angles. To complement this feature, Hydro also allows you to investigate the effect on stability of adding weight at any off-center position. With these new capabilities, Hydro will give you greater flexibility in analyzing a vessel’s stability.
Feel free to sign up for an evaluation version of MultiSurf which includes Hydro.
Hydro is a Windows-based PC program for calculation of flotation and righting moments of an elongated floating body, such as the hull of a boat or a ship. The applications include:
The Windows-based version of Hydro includes all features of our older, time-tested DOS-version with its interactive interface, screen displays of boat’s attitude and of summary graphs, the option to save and/or print all the results, and easy escape from any calculation.
- section areas
- displaced volume
- center of buoyancy
