The paper introduces an algorithm capable of computing a ship's draft and stress on a small computer system or programmable calculator . The report has also demonstrated how the large amount of data in the ship's capacity tables can be effectively reduced for incorporation into the program. The algorithm was implemented in the BASIC language and was intended to require the minimum of user interaction while providing the maximum useful output.
