Inclining experiment

The stability test is performed to determine, by experimental method, the value of the metacentric height and thus is capable of detecting coordinates of the gravity center of the boat / ship, in the loading condition of the test.
This information, along with the creation of the virtual model of the hull, will permit, using naval architetture software, to perform the followings analysis:

► to perform hydrostatic calculations for the inclining experiment, Inctat Stability Booklet, CE certification, ...;
► estimate the seaworthiness and resistance to various sea conditions;

The technical documentation required for this kind of tests is represented by the Construcion Plan and the Capacity Plan.
The stability test is specifically requested and supervised by the Naval Classification Societies (RINA, ABS ...) for the issued of the Class Certificate.
