Andreas Schuster, Thomas Oole, William Fox: 3402. Ship Inclining Experiment Accessory Kit. 2007.



US Military aircraft weighing standards specify the use of an accessory kit that includes tools similar to those used by weight engineers and naval architects for ship inclining experiments. The procurement of ship inclining experiment tools and accessories is currently a rather tedious, word of mouth process. This paper describes the typical contents of an aircraft weighing accessory kit. It then describes the ship inclining experiment and lists the tools used during the inclining process. From this, a specification and list for a ship inclining accessory kit is proposed. Hopefully, this paper will provide insight to equipment suppliers to enable them to create a Ship Inclining Experiment Accessory Kit for the marine industry.
