Should be....or it is....??
Engineering is not based on thoughts or feelings, but facts.
Don't mix units

This suggests to me that you are unable to follow the basic steps noted above and calculate what is required.
This is very basic stuff for any...
Ops, my bad, missed that.
Well, it is a simple force x lever = moment.
So, you can calculate the section modulus of this bar = bending stress....
Simple answer - yes!
But you'll need to provide more information.
Firstly, is there anything that joins these 2 bars of the U shape...
Drastically is the word.
Sadly just a skeleton crew left now....i was there about -5years ago helping them out on a project.
Nice bunch of guys.
ain't that the truth...!!
Thanks for the update and feedback.
Rarely get post comment feedback - much appreciated :D
Your question, if that is what it is, is too vague.
Your title suggests a question but is not clear.
I think that is where we differ.
Empirical is simply based on observation or other cases on 'experience' rather than any exact theory.
That's what I assumed. It may have elements of real science and maths in it, but it is ostensibly empirically based.
Indeed, one of many books...
Where does this formula come from...historical empirical formula?
Ostensibly, that is correct.
I assume your first statement is based upon the available area exposed to capture solar energy ..otherwise I don't...
And there in lies the problem. The question you posted, doesn't have the 2nd moment of area of the waterplane. And there is insufficient...
And yet....it all goes pear shaped.
Can I assume you didn't read the links posted above then! :rolleyes:
The waterplane areas remain basically...
Firstly, you should read Marine Conversions, by Nigel Warren.
The book is dedicated to this very subject.
Well, depending upon your interest and willingness to delve deeper into the subject of seakeeping beyond one line sound bites, you can make a...
BM = I/V
Indeed, since if two systems are not the same, ipso facto, the outcomes shall be different. How much different, is the matter at hand, not the...
Seakeeping is a terribly complex subject. It crosses over into many different disciplines of naval architecture.
Shape is just one attribute to...
As Phil notes.
rpm (new) = cube root [RPMo x (Power(new)/Power0)]
0 = original
new = target
