Abstract:

Assuming optimum tuning, the most effective tank will be that one situated as high as is feasible in the ship, and having as much for-and-aft length as possible. However, restrictions, such as GM loss, tank weight, and location are important also cost and fuel savings resulting from reduction in bilge keel size should not be overlooked. For each ship the tank design has to be selected to suit, however, the optimization program does give one the basic information upon which to make a selection.
