Hello Menno, I have to make a public statement:
Due to my deep ignorance of theory, what I wrote was, probably
Wrong.
It happened that I was concerned about the topic so I did what a technician
must do. Experiment.
So I sketched a simple model – test.fbm, attached – and what it came out was:
The centre of lateral area refers to the centerbord or midship section, if you
place an object away from y=0, it is not considered.
The same object placed as a center keel and moved along the ‘x’ coordinates
will give you the information that you have required.
Well that’s a lesson about improper speech is’nt it?
With apologizes, Jurgen.
