David Tellet: 3601. Guidelines for Submarine Weight Moment of Inertia Calculations. 2013.



Traditionally the roll weight moment of inertia and gyradius for sub- marines have been estimated values. This paper discusses the weight moment of inertia calculation, the proper way to handle structure that is symmetric about the roll axis, and provides guidelines for calculation methods, reporting requirements, and the optimum percentage of the to- tal weight that should be used for the self inertia calculations. The paper includes a method to include acquisition and service life margins in the inertia calculations.
