Duration of the Course
The course is a one day course commencing at 09:00 hrs and finishing at 17:30.
The one day course has been developed so that learners will have a basic concept of ship stability, particularly with respect to the centre of gravity, centre of buoyancy, GM and GZ Curves. The course aims to make learners aware of dangerous situations that can adversely affect stability such as FSE shifting of weights and the effect on the C of G and the GM, angle of loll, also what good stability and bad stability is.
By the end of the course the learner will be able to understand basic ship stability in relation to
- Centre of Gravity.
- Stable, Unstable and Neutral Equilibrium.
