Tech/Engineering - Ships, Sailing, Maritime / pomiar powierzchni żagloskrzydła
English term or phrase: offset
If the mast, spar, flap, or sail is of constant section throughout its length then the area shall be its length multiplied by the mean half girth.
If the mast, spar or sail is not of constant section, and its profile forms a fair curve or curves, it shall be divided into a suitable number of equal lengths and Simpson's Rule used to calculate the area, using the half girth measurements (see e)) as offsets
Simpson's Rule is:
Area = L (a + 4b + 2c + 4d + 2e ………………. 2x + 4y + z) / 3
Where L is the uniform distance between offsets and a, b, c, d, e,………….x, y, and z are offsets. Note: there has to be an odd number of offsets.
