1. Description of camber, sheer, tumble home, Rise of floor by sketch
Camber:-The transverse curvature of the deck from the centerline down to the sides. This camber is used on exposed deck to drive water to the sides of the ship.
Sheer:- The curvature of the deck in a fore & aft directions, rising from midship to the maximum at the ends. It makes a ship more seaworthy by raising the deck at the fore & after ends further from the water and by reducing the volume of water coming on the deck.
Tumble Home:- In some ships, the midship side shell in the region of the upper deck is curved slightly towards the centre line, thus reducing the width of the upper deck & decks above.
Rise of Floor:- The bottom shell of ship is sometimes sloped up from the keel to the bilge to facilitate drainage. The rise of floor is very small.
2. What is freeboard and reserve buoyancy ?
Freeboard:-It is the distance from the waterline to the top of the deck plating at the side of the deck amidships.
Reserve Buoyancy:- It is the potential buoyancy of a ship and depends upon the intact, watertight volume above the waterline.
When a mass is added to ship, or buoyancy is lost due to bilging, the reserve buoyancy is converted into buoyancy by increasing the draught. If the loss in bupyancy exceeds the reserve buoyancy the V/L will sink.
3. why tankers have less freeboard
The openings in the tankers are small than of other ship & also the permeability is more.
4. what do u mean by stability of ship. How a stable ship returns to upright posn if heeled by external force.
STABILITY OF SHIP: The tendency of ship to come back to its upright position when healed by external force is defined as the stability of the ship.
When a ship is healed the centre of buoyancy shifts, this forms a righting lever . thus the wt. of the ship
5. what is tender and stiff ship.
Tender Ship:- The ship with a small Metacentric height has a small righting lever at any angle & will roll easily is said to be tender ship. In tender ship, In it the centre of gravity lies below the transverse metacentre. The GM is more than GZ. & these kind of ship are more stable.
Stiff Ship:- The ship with a large Metacentric height has a large righting lever at any angle & has considerable resistance to rolling. A stiff ship is very uncomfortable. In it the Centre of Gravity lies above the transverse metacentre.
6. What is free surface effect. How knowledge of free surface effect will be useful. How it is reduced constructionally.
Free Surface Effect:- When a tank of liquid is partially filled & the mass of liquid is moved. This movement affects the Metacentric height. This is called free surface effect.
If free surface effects becomes more, then ship may Capsize.
7. Collision bulkhead purpose and location.
· Avoids flooding of ship in case of damage to bows.
· Location is such that it is not so much forward as to get damaged on impact , Neither it should be too far aft so that compartment flooded forward causes extensive trim by head. As a rule located at minimum distance to get maximum space for cargo.
· Minimum at 1/20 of ships length from forward perpendicular
· The collision bulkhead is continuous to upper most continuous deck
· The collision bulkhead is 20% stronger than other bulkheads
· Collision bulkhead is 5 to 8 percent of ships length from forward.

10. How much length bilge keel extends to.
It is half of the length of the ship. Starting from midship to fore & aft equally distanced.
11. Mid ship section of bulk carrier and tanker.
12. What is margin line.
Margin Line:- It is the imaginary line which is drawn 75mm below the uppermost continuous deck. It Denotes the limit, upto which can be flooded/ loaded without sinking.
13. What is angle of loll?
Angle of LOL:- It is the angle at which the ship with initial negative Metacentric height will lie at rest in still water.
If the ship is further inclined to an angle less than angle of loll, the ship will sink.
14. what are GZ and KN curves.
15. sketch plimsol marking.
16. How aft peak tank is sealed from stern tube.
The propeller enters the shaft outside from the ship, acting as its barrier. In case of water cooled Stern Tube, Gland packing are used to prevent water ingress inside. But incase of Lignum vitae bearing, some water is allowed to go.
In case of Oil cooled Stern tube, the rubber seals fitted with springs are used.
17. what is block coefficient. If we say that block coefficient of one ship is 0.9 and 0ther 0.95. what does it mean.
Block Coefficient:- It is the ratio of volume of displacement to the product of the length, breadth & draught.
Cb = Volume of displacement / (L x B x d)
When Block coef. If more, it means Volume of displacement is more.
