Abstract:

A FORTRAN computer program for evaluating the mass distribution and displacement characteristics of any submerged axisymmetric vehicle is presented. Given the body offsets, hull section materials and thicknesses, and component descriptive data, program WTBAL computes the center of gravity and center of buoyancy locations, the vehicle and displaced water moments of inertia, vehicle weight, buoyancy, and surface area.
