GHS FAQ

Question QA049 :
I am creating tank tables with the TC command and I want the free surface to be included with the volume. My command is as follows:
TC (sw*.*) /fsm /vol /nosurf
And the columns in the output are:
Ref Ht Load Colume LCG TCG VCG
The command seems to ignore my request for FSM. Any suggestions.


Answer:
In order to get FSM you need to allow surface info (omit your /nosurf parameter) and you also need to show weight (use /weight). But this does not leave enough room for the FSM column, so you have to eliminate the RefHt :
TC /WEIGHT /VOL /NOREF /FSM
