Bouyancy Modeling


#1

I’m building a 20’X24’ Floating Dock with a Quonset Hut mounted on it. I’m modelling it in Sketchup first. Is there an extension out there that would help me simulate/illustrate how much submergence I will have on the floats given the weight of the building and framing?

I’ve not tried this functionality, but I would bet that MSPhysics should be able to simulate this.
You should ask your question here too to get answers from the physics experts…

Edit: here’s a video that makes me think that it should be possible…
