David Tellet: 3678. Submarine Static Stability. 2017.



This paper complements [Tel07] and discusses basic sub- marine stability. Areas covered include submarine arrange- ments, centers of gravity and buoyancy, hydrostatics and volumetrics, the principle of the metacenter, types of stabil- ity (including surfaced, submerged, damaged, longitudinal, transitional, and under-ice), stability criteria, and a section on how to calculate stability. The appendix includes typical calculation forms and a discussion of free surface moments and how they are calculated.
