The first is without a heeling moment \and the second two include one. The only difference between the second and third \examples is the change from limit 3 which uses MAX to limit 4 which uses MAX0. \In the third example, only the limit summary is printed. \ \Limits are organized in pairs to compare the absolute and residual righting arm \properties. The min/max values are arbitrary and the pass/fail results are not \important. \ ra /lim:att \Without a heeling moment, EQU=EQU0, MAX=MAX0, RA0=RA00, and AREA=ABS AREA hmmt 250@0, 50@80 `unrealistic heeling moment for demonstration purposes only ra /lim:att \With the heeling moment, EQU<>=EQU0, MAX<>MAX0, RA0<>RA00, and RES AREA<>ABS AREA \Notice that: EQU>EQU0, MAX>MAX0, RA0<RA00, and RES AREA<ABS AREA limit(3) off limit(4) angle at max0 > 10 ra /lim:att /notab \Same case as before but with MAX0 substituted in for MAX and \its value matches the 1st case with out the heeling moment. print preview report off |
