Motion Loads on Cargo or Containers on ship
Length perpendicular 
L bp = m
Breadth moulded
B = m
Depth moulded
D = m
draught (design)
d = m
Central of floatation
LCF = m forward of AP
Metacentric height
GM = m => 0.05B LR
Roll centre

notes:
(1) Roll centre
RC = {0.5[ D + d ]}
2
= m
(2) Roll period
TR = 0.8B
= sec.
(3) Max. Roll Amplitude, QR = 3150 C
B + 75
Where C,
for ships with bilge keel when TR < 20 sec
0.75 for ships with bilge keel when TR > 30 sec
C may be interpolated between 0.75 and 0.9 when TR falls between 20 afd 30 seconds.
Hence,
C = sec.
QR = deg.
(4) Pitch period TP =  7 - (183 - L)(0.0123)

(5) Max. pitch amplitude, F = deg 120f<L<275m
(6) Heave period TH =
= deg.
Load for Various Components
Assumption:
Container unit weight W
= 1 ton
Condition A - Roll and Heave
Vert. Load   W.Av = W[cosQR +/- 0.00226(p3QR/TR2).y + 0.0051(p2L/TH2)cosQR
