i. Panting stresses is an in and out motion of the plating in the bows of a ship and is caused by unequal water pressure as the bow passes through successive waves.
ii. Pounding stresses is exist when ships is pitching. Ship’s bows lift clear of the water and come down heavily. It causes damage to the bottom and girder at the bow.
When a vessels is heeled (inclined by an external force), the force of buoyancy, acting vertically upwards through the new position of COB, becomes seperated from the force of gravity, acting vertically downwards through the COG, by a horizontal distance called righting lever (GZ)
