Hydrostatics Tool Window

The Hydrostatics Tool Window provides a brief set hydrostatic quantities for the specified entity. When a valid entity is selected within the model view, the select button will become enabled. The draught cell is editable and can be changed to give quantities for a different waterline. The update button will update the calculation as a result of any changes in geometry although this should happen automatically. Entities on which calculation have been made (and have been named) will be reference by the combo box. For more information on the entities which support hydrostatics calculation can be found in Hydrostatics Entities.
