|German to English translations [PRO]|
Tech/Engineering / ships, stability testing, heeling test
|German term or phrase: Pantokarenen|
|general context: ships|
particular context: heeling test
specific context: not much to go on; used in column labels for tables or isolated phrases. From a diagram, the 'Pantokerenenwert' is evidently the horizontal arm of the triangle formed by the line along the central z axis of the ship from the keel to the metacentre and a vertical line segment vertical line passing through the metacentre, and is thus related to the righting moment.
|static stability curve|
There is not enough information to completely verify just what this label is attached to but it almost certainly refers to static stability curves, or in short, stability curves. The triangle you describe refers to the 'righting arm' at a single static angle of heel, but 'panto' (gr. all) refers to a curve constructed by all the angles of heel through 180 degrees. In ship and yacht design this is referred to as the static stability curve.
