Hydrostatics JEE225


This unit provides students with knowledge of the fundamental concepts of statical stability and trim of intact and damaged floating structures and the associated practical implications and applications within a regulated environment.

This is a unit pivotal to an adequate knowledge within any maritime-based engineering degree. The unit provides the ability to determine the response of any floating structure to changes in its geometry and weight distribution and hence forms one foundation for subsequent design and operations related units within the student's respective course.
