# What is deck edge immersion?

## What is deck edge immersion?

As the angle of heel increases, there comes a point when the deck of the ship immerses. This angle is called the angle of deck immersion, and the corresponding point on the curve is called point of inflection.

## What is deck edge?

Edge is the highest sky deck in the Western Hemisphere located at 30 Hudson Yards, with a one-of-a-kind design, it’s suspended in mid-air, giving you the feeling of floating in the sky with 360-degree views you can’t get anywhere else.

What is GZ in ship?

The vessel’s centre of gravity (G) has a distinct effect on the righting lever (GZ) and consequently the ability of a vessel to return to the upright position. The lower the centre of gravity (G), the bigger is the righting lever (GZ).

### What is the GZ curve?

The curve of statical stability, or GZ curve as it is most commonly referred to, is a graphical representation of the ship’s transverse statical stability.

### What is angle of deck immersion?

As the angle of heel increases, there comes a point when the deck of the ship immerses. This angle is called the angle of deck immersion, and the corresponding point on the curve is called point of inflection. This results a change in concavity of the curve.

What is the minimum allowable value for GZ?

The righting lever (GZ) shall be at least 0.20 meters at an angle of heel equal to or greater than 30°. The maximum righting lever shall occur at an angle of heel not less than 30°. The initial transverse metacentric height shall not be less than 0.15 meters.

#### Should I picture frame my deck?

Safety – Having a picture-framed deck adds safety to your deck as well. Yes, it’s true. The picture-frame deck boards call visual attention to stairs and deck edges, especially for the visually impaired (whether that’s a result of bad genetics or too much tequila). Functionality – Remember, we must shed the debris!

#### What happened when GZ curved sustain with a very high maximum value?

A GZ curve with a very high maximum value might not have the sufficient area, and as a result, the ship will capsize easily because it wouldn’t be able to absorb enough energy before capsizing.

What is angle of downflooding?

Downflooding angle means the static angle from the intersection of the vessel’s centerline and the waterline in calm water to the first opening that cannot be closed weathertight and through which downflooding can occur.

## What is the minimum allowable value for GM?

Initial GM or metacentric height should not be less then 0.15 m. Righting lever GZ should be at least 0.2 m and angle of heel Ѳ ≥ 30̊.
