Tamping Pressure/Force Calculator (Solid Bulk Cargoes)



Use the calculator below to calculate the tamping pressure and force you need to apply during the Flow Table Test and Penetration Test, which are methods stated in the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code (IMSBC Code) used to determine the Transportable Moisture Limit (TML) of 'Group A' liquefiable solid bulk cargoes.
