The variation of ship hydrostatic data with draught (distance between the baseline and the water surface) is shown by a set of curves refered to as hydrostatic curves. These curves are used in the assessment of the ship in various conditions of loading. This project uses the body plan of an actual ship to determine the volumetric displacement as a function of the draught by numerical integration.
