Dominick Cimino, M Redmond: 2013. Naval Ships Weight Moment of Inertia. 1991.



This paper discusses the results of an overall effort to enhance mass properties capabilities by the development of a computer tool to calculate weight moment of inertia/gyradius values for naval ships. This capability was incorporated into the Navy’s ship design weight estimating family of computer programs (SDWE/UPDAT). This paper provides the documentation necessary to produce weight moment of inertia/gyradius data and provides guidance in estimating as well as calculating inertia values.
