Longitudinal strength calculations in damaged condition
In the menu with the overview of loading conditions, under the ‘Output / Damage stability’ option, there is a new additional option ‘Longitudinal strength’ :
If this option is selected, longitudinal strength calculations are made for all selected loading conditions for damage stability (2nd column in this menu) and for all selected damage cases for the final stage of flooding in damaged condition.
The weight of incoming water is temporarily added to the loading condition and a longitudinal strength calculation is further made for that condition in the normal way.
This extension option is now available. The options for deterministic damage stability and longitudinal strength must be present.
