Question QA009 :
When finding maximum VCG for passenger vessels, how can the effect of passenger crowding to one side of the vessel be accounted for ?


Answer :
The passenger crowding requires a heeling moment; therefore it cannot be done at the same time as the intact stability criterion which does not use a heeling moment.
After you have determined the heeling moment due to the passenger crowding, you can run MAXVCG as in the following example:
LIMIT OFF
LIMIT (1) ANGLE AT EQU < 10
HMMT ...
MAXVCG ...
