Abstract:

This report presents the objectives, methodology and outcomes of the verification and validation analyses of the Maxsurf Stability tank table generator software application. The fundamental objective of the analyses is to provide objective quantitative evidence that the Maxsurf Stability software can be used to generate platform tank calibration data in a format and to a standard that meets, or exceeds the requirements imposed by the Maritime Institute of the Netherlands MARIN and the Cooperative Research Navies CRNAV ship stability working group. The results of the analyses show that the Maxsurf Stability software program Version 20.00.00.59 generates tank calibration data and a tank table output file that meets the aforementioned requirements.
