AbstractError is performed to establish uncertainty intervals and fractional uncertainties for ship and offshore model inclining experiments, both in water and on a swinging frame. Similar analysis is carried out for mass moment of inertia calculations using the swinging frame. Formulae are derived which may be applied to any model tested on the IMD apparatus.
