Hi to all and a Merry Christmas,
I am looking at a stability case with an older ship which still has to comply with stability standards linked to "permissible length" i.e. the regulations governed the maximum length between watertight bulkheads by prescribing a permissible length as opposed to the more modern '2 compartment' or '3 compartment' standard. The requirements were basically to recreate a curve under the floodable length curve which is x percent of the floodable length curve. The x dependant on factors of the ship's length and number of passengers etc. Then the length of any given compartment could not be greater than the permissible length curve.
I am looking to see if there is any way of doing this intelligently in Maxsurf i.e. Stability obviously has a floodable length curve feature but wonder if there is a way to create a permissible length curve or if my best bet is to extract the floodable length data and then multiply the outputs by the x I mention?
Suggestions, as always warmly welcomed.
Just checking I'm understanding correctly, are you saying:
Permissible Length = Factor x Floodable Length
We don't have anything that I'm aware of. Exporting the data to Excel might be your best option.

You’re correct and yes I thought that was the case but I’d have been stupid not to ask.
