Hi,

Does anyone is in possession (or has made) a physical study of the Titanic (like the rudder, the dynamic of fluid around the hull,...). I'm in preparatory school and in the need of formulae about that sorts of things.

Thanks,

Noel,

As we saw in this TRMA article
http://titanic-model.com/db/db-02/rm-db-2.html
(It is just an example, do I have to mention the copyright ? :s )

There is many studies that must have been made, even in 1912 or now, and this is what I'm looking for. Do you think those Naval Architecture book might help me of calculating volume of water displacement, ... I'm already looking for programs that can do those stuff, but I can't pay 1000$ for them :/

Thanks

Nicolas

... ah, it makes perfect sense now.

If Einstein had been a naval architect he could perhaps have come up with something a bit more impressive than E=mc2

Einstein was an amateur when it comes to impressive formulae.

Even the Inland Revenue managed to come up with a decent formula re: calculating maximum Tax Free Cash from an Occupational Pension Scheme for a member who joined between (roughly) 1987 and 1989, as follows:

(A - B)
(C - B) x (D - E) + E

I won't detail what the letters stand for.

Isn't tax exciting!

Don't you believe it, Paul. The Inland Revenue actually use formulae along the lines of: Income tax = arm + leg - mercy
