Volume for each pontoon
- Large pontoons: 1.5x5.5x0.5M = 4.125m3
- Medium pontoons: 1.5x1x0.5 = 0.75m3
- Small pontoons: 1x0.5x0.5 = 0.25 m3
4 large pontoons: 4.125m3 x 4 units= 16.5m3
4 medium pontoons: 0.75m3 x 4 units = 3m3
8 small pontoons: 0.25m3 x 8 units = 2m3
Total volume : 16.5 + 3 + 2 = 21.5m3
Buoyant force B: 216,114 Newtons
Mass of displaced fluid : 22,038 Kg or 22.038 tons
This buoyancy calculator is a simple tool that lets you determine the buoyant force in a blink of an eye. All you have to do is provide the density of a fluid and the volume of an object that stays underwater, and it will use the buoyancy formula to estimate the force that keeps the object floating.
Maximum weight of the structure itself : 5 tons
Weight of sinkers (14 units of 500kg each) = 7 tons
22,038 kg (buoyancy)- 5000 kg (structure weight) - 7000 kg (sinkers) = 10,038 kg of residual buoyancy (or 10 tons)
Can we build and load this in a truck?
That’s a volume calculation in meters to cubic meters.
