    Hi everyone,
    My question is related to the stability analysis of the barge during transportation of offshore modules. What permeability should be considered for barge ballastable tanks to carry out stability analysis in intact and damaged condition? Thanks in advance.

    Any tank should consider usual permeability, as when you calculate liquid capacity, let´s say 98.5%. That is valid for intact or damaged stability, when an empty tank is open to the sea, in a damaged condition. If the tank is fully filled, then the asumption is that looses its content and gets filled with seawater to the equilibrium WL level.
