Thank you very much for the answer, could you please do the sum with an example. So it's easy to understand. Thank you so much.
Thanks a lot for great question. Normally, all ship's have a trimming table which is provided onboard for calculating trimming values. The reason is that it is the most quickest method of carrying out trimming calculations. Coming to your question for a situation where the trimming tables are not available, in this case we use the LCG (Longitudinal Centre of Gravity) method in order to determine the trimming quantities and hold distribution. To tell you briefly about the same, the maximum quantity which is permitted to be loaded is determined by the officer by using simple formulae [ (final mid draft - current mid draft) x TPC X 100].
