Welcome to ShipLoad – the excel based Ship Trim & Stability Calculator. This app can be used to
Calculate Draft and Trim of a Vessel
Stability – IMO Criteria for Ships/Barges
These calculations are very useful during loading/unloading of a vessel, and also for planning vessel operations. It can be quickly deployed, and gives fairly accurate results.
What input is required to run it?
The user needs to do a one-time effort of entering the following:
- Principal Particulars
- Hydrostatics (zero heel and trim)
- Cross Curve data (zero heel and trim, VCG can be varied)
- Tanks data and geometry
- Downflooding point data
The above inputs are required to be entered to create the vessels’ database.
A video demo is below:
