Tanker - Heating Coils

Script calculates heating requirements of cargo oil (crude, chemicals, etc) in order to get pumped from tanks. Typical usage is for sea (or rvier) going tankers.

Enter steam properties, cargo ("oil") properties and characteristics of the tanks and their neighboring tanks and you are good to go.

Input
Input can be minimized by "hand" editing default valuse in the script and calling them by typing '0' once you are asked to input values.

Tank groupig
Typical tanker consist of identical tanks. Moreover, as a rule, tanks are always symmetrical arroung longitudinal axis of the tanker

Typical Aframax tanker (approx. 100,000 t) consist of 12 cargo tanks + 2 "slop" tanks, which can be used for cargo storage. In total, 14 tanks. It is large number of tanks and huge input for operator. Grouping allows to reduce input - one group for two formost tanks, one group for 8 mid-tanks, one for aft cargo tanks and one for two slop-tanks. By introducing grouping, daunting task of input for 14 tanks is reduced to, more moderate, 4 groups.

Output
Upon execution, input and output of calculation will be written to "projectname.txt" file in same folder in which script is located.

Disclaimer
Script served me well on several projects and results had been confirmed on sea-trials and, later, in operation. It is not related to you - you can have different experience, for various reasons. Hence, this script comes without **any warranty**, even without warranty that it is "fit for the purpose." You are using it on your own risk.
