GHS FAQ

Question QA013 :
Are there any special considerations in calculating stability for a load of timber ?


Answer :
If your timber is loaded on deck so that it contributes to the buoyancy when heeled, you may want to model the timber load as if it were superstructure. You can use a "permeability" factor to account for the air spaces. For example,
CREATE LUMBER
CLASS SUPER
PERM 0.75
ENDS 0, 100
TOP 20
BOT 10
OUT 20
SPACING 4
