Need Help-Calculation of ship trimming moments4 Attachment(s)
Dear all:
I want to calculate the trimming moments of wigley hull using ANSYS 13 Fluent. I will use these trimming moments for the calculation of trim by equating trim moment to the hydrostatic moment. I have calculated total resistance of hull in fixed condition. In my case the coordinate axis lies at Longitudinal center of flotation, With x-axis points to the stern of ship, the y-axis points to starboard, and the z-axis is vertically upwards (Shown in attached file: Position of Co-ordinate Axis). In post processor, I also calculated the trimming moments acting over the hull. These moment values and method I used to calculate these moments are attached. I need help with following problems - I am not sure if the present position of coordinate axis is right, for an analysis in which trimming moments have to be calculated?
- I am not sure, if the way I calculated the trimming moments is right.
