Metacentric height also has implication on the natural period of rolling of a hull, with very large metacentric heights being associated with shorter periods of roll which are uncomfortable for passengers. Hence, a sufficiently high but not excessively high metacentric height is considered ideal for passenger ships.

In the case posed above with the box shaped hull the metacentric height is a function of the induced roll resulting from moving the CofG laterally. Moving the CofG laterally will move the CofB laterally and this alters the second moment of area of the waterplane so the metacentric heigt changes. Rick W• the transverse stability. A vessel with a large transverse metacentric height will have a higher natural frequency than an equivalent vessel with a low metacentric height. This is why most catamarans have a more rapid motion than monohulls. • the roll mass moment of inertia of the yacht, AND the inertia of the water

A Critical Assessment of Ship Parametric Roll Analysis Hisham Moideen, Texas A&M University. Jeffrey Falzarano Texas A&M University, ABSTRACT . Analysis of ship parametric rolling has generally been restricted to simple analytical models and sophisticated time domain simulations.

For towline design purposes the analysis of system response to wave excitation, described above, is supplemented by a wave-frequency analysis of towline performance which is unencumbered by the
the metacentric radius. An analytical model, based on a simplified geometric representation of the ship hull, possibly as a polyedric surface, could be built for the estimation of the position of the buoyancy center and of the metacentric radius. Specifically, the metacentric height is calculated based on 13. Metacentric height for small values of angle of heel is the distance between the a) centre of gravity and centre of buoy-ancy b) centre of gravity and metacentre c) centre of buoyancy and metacentre d) free surface and centre of buoyancy Ans: b 14.
