Computer Helps With Cargo Load Monitoring And Business Management

American Hydromath Company of Germantown, N.Y., is the producer of LOADOSCOPE GP, a desktop general-purpose computer programmed to meet the needs of the marine industry in ship's cargo loading and business management, both shoreside and shipboard.

It can include ship's store control, financial accounting, voyage data analysis, crew payroll, survey and maintenance, purchasing, inventory and performance monitoring. The user-friendly system allows rapid and accurate calculation of drafts forward and aft, dwt, graphical and numerical stress values as a percentage of maximum allowable SF and BM, for harbor and at-sea conditions, GZ curve and angles of heel, stability (GM and GM Req.) and tabular summaries of load conditions.

All readings are simultaneously displayed and updated on the CRT screen. Operating personnel have an overview of the loading pattern, can see what points are overstressed and can try out what measures to take to obtain a maximum payload with proper stress, desired trim and safe stability. An alphanumeric printer lists and identifies all inputs and outputs. By combining experience in ship's operations and naval architecture, cargo planning programs are available to specific ship's characteristics for all vessel types, including containerships, tankers, bulk carriers, RO/ROs, LNG/LPG ships, tug/barge, etc.
