    Hi
    I'm using Maxsurf for calculating stability and longitudinal strength in my project
    Stability is Ok, but in longitudinal I have some problem:
    - I don't know how Maxsurf distribution the light weight along length of ship?
    - If Maxsurf haven't got this function how I can I solve it ( I remember that Autoship have this function)
    _ some case moment and shear force at stern and bow is not ZERO? I don't know why
    Please help me, thanks so much!

    Hi MyMind04,
    In the Loadcase window you can enter a longitudinal arm and a fwd and aft extent for each item...including the lightship. The weight is then calculated as a uniformly distributed or uniformly varying load between these limits.
    Kind regards,
    Dougal

    Hi Dougal
    Welcome to the forum, we'll need to open a Hobart branch at this rate since that makes 3 of us. I see you have no contact email info and it would be a good idea then to enable private messages.

    Cheers

    Thanks Dougal so much!
    I've tried many time but it's not work property, I do as your advise for lightship but something wrong (data input in the cell in red color) and weight of lightship not distribution along length's ship. Can you show me clearly! And I found that module for longitudinal of Maxsurf is not better than Autoship, especially distribution for lightship. Thanks so much!
