It is a spreadsheet to calculate the forces and accelerations on a Cargo onboard a vessel (calculated at CoG of vessel)
Very useful in Marine Operations. These forces and accelerations can further be used to design the seafastening for the cargo.
It calculates both Motion Forces and the Wind Loads
The Motion Forces are calculated in accordance with Nobledenton Guidelines for Marine Operations, Rev 5 (June 2013).
The Wind Loads are calculated as per ABS MODU Rules, 2011. Different Height coefficients are applied to different zones of the cargo depending on its height.
