N L Wood: 1187. Inclining Experiment Uncertainty Analysis. 1977.



A ship’s safety and ability to meet performance requirements are highly dependent on its stability characteristics. In that a ship’s stability characteristics have a direct relationship to the vertical center of gravity, it is essential that proper consideration be given to possible inaccuracies in the vertical center of gravity when evaluating a ship’s stability characteristics.
The accepted method of validating the mass properties characteristics of a ship is the inclining experiment. The purpose of this paper is to delineate procedures and analyses that can be used to establish the magnitude of the uncertainties in the vertical center of gravity of the ship as determined by the inclining experiment.
