- Then for each heel angle, input the weight, VCG, TCG, recorded LCB as LCG and the desired righting arm angle and run to get the righting arm for that angle.

Computing Righting Arms with Fixed Trim
We recently had a question from an Orca3D user about how to compute righting arm curves, but with a fixed trim. While this doesn't reflect the true physics of a vessel heeling, some regulatory bodies still require the calculation to be done this way.
