Questions QA050 :
I am creating tank tables using ullages with the stop command :
tc (sw*.*) ull: 0 0.5 ... 30 /stop:empty /fsm / vol /we /fsm /noload
Is there a way to give the exact ullage when the tank is at zero volume. I noitced that the stop command just gives the next full increment (in this case, multipes of 0.5m) to correspond to zero volume.

Answer :
You could do it on an individual tank basis (where you issue a separate TC command for each tank) by making use of the HEIGHT variable and the TOP/BOTTOM feature of the REFPT command to calculate the maximum ullage, setting the value to a user variable which you could then place into the TC command.
