Applied Ship Design JEE335




To expose students to practical design issues and processes and to enable development of conceptual, analytical and project-planning skills required for ship design with a particular emphasis on global structural design and regulatory constraints. The unit develops further design skills acquired in Ship Design (Ship) and permits the application of knowledge acquired in Resistance and Propulsion and Seakeeping and Manoeuvring to a rule-governed design project centred on a moderate-sized vessel. The unit also consolidates knowledge acquired in Mechanics of Solids and Structural Analysis and demonstrates its practical application to a ship's design.
