For many years, PIAS has a module Sounding, which computes tank capacities and corresponding COG for an arbitrary list/trim combination, if applicable also with temperature correction to account for expansion of tank structure or cargo. The latter also with support for standards, e.g. ASTM tables for liquid hydrocarbons. These results can be utilized in a cargo/ullage report or be exported to a loading condition.
This feature is now integrated in Loading. With sounding functionality, the sounding pipes also get the option to calculate with trim and angle. Furthermore, interfaces with tank sensors are available.
