Steel Coils Loading Course

Which are the main functions of Steel Coils Loading Software?

The Steel Coils Loading – Multiload Option covers any length and any size of coil and provides for each Cargo Hold:

· The max. number of tiers (1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 etc. ) for 2, 3, 4 and 5-6 dunnages.
· The total number of coils, e.g. 1235 pieces
· The total weight of coils, e.g. 8027.5 MT

This Multiload feature is split in two main functions. (As per CSR Rules and the Loading Manual).

· The Maximum Allowable Steel Coils Loading.
· The Actual Steel Coils Loading.

Both are started from the (Ship Options) drop down menu of MULTILOAD weight input screen.

How the Maximum Allowable Steel Coils Loading Option works?

Given the Length, Diameter and Weight of any given Coil, for a particular Cargo Hold Multiload Option, determines the Maximum Number of Tiers (1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, etc.) of Coils that can be loaded with 2, 3, 4 or 5-6 of Dunnage respectively. 

Giving the Length, Diameter and Weight of any given Coil, by pressing the Calculate button you get the following results for every case of 2, 3, or 5-6 Dunnages.

- Maximum Tiers in steps of 0.5 tier.
- Total Number of Coils per Cargo Hold.
- Total Weight in MT per Cargo Hold.
- Finally the Overall Double Bottom Strength for each Cargo Hold is also shown.

 

How the Actual Steel Coils Loading Option works?

It is also important that some times we need to assess the Steel Coil Loading of our vessel
for only given Length, Diameter and Weight for other than the Maximum Allowable
number of tiers.

Giving the Length, Diameter ,Weight to be loaded of any given Coil and the Actual Tiers,
you get the following results by pressing the Calculate button:

- Total Number of Coils per Cargo Hold.
- Total Weight in MT per Cargo Hold.
- Overall Double Bottom Strength for each Cargo Hold.
- Finally the Local Tank Top Strength for each Cargo Hold and for every case of 2, 3, 4 or 5-6 Dunnages.

NOTE
For both options there is the possibility to “Store” and then “Recall” a desired pattern of
loading

How the Stowage Arrangement works?

In both Actual or Maximum Allowable Steel Coils Loading modules, the user can have detailed stowage arrangement results by pressing “Stowage”. Also, these results can be exported to an Excel file.
