ArchimedesMB - Floating Body Hydrostatics

About Archimedes MultiBody


Archimedes is a low cost, benchmarked, software utility for generating hydrostatics and cross curves for arbitrary floating bodies.


It employs a robust engine for calculating the submerged volume of complex cross sections and as such can handle multiple WL crossings, hollow sections, coincident sections and sections with zero area (for defining hull/appendage limits of length).


ArchimedesMB is free for non-commercial use and we welcome any and all feedback on it.

Archimedes downoload

Hi John,
I lost the HD with the previous copy of MB, but trying to install after downloading I receive the message "Compressed folder corrupted".
Do you know why?
I read some posts about Archimedes II: which difference with MB?

Regards.

Frame spacing

Hi John,
Is Archimedes sensitive to frame spacing in an appendage. If there are several frames where the section area changes smoothly then a sudden change is it appropriate to use closer spaced frames in the area of greater change?

Frame Spacing

Hi Peter,

Sorry but only just picked up your comment. No, Archimedes is not sensitive to frame spacing. Concentrated frame spacing only require where necessary.

Best Regards
