This unit exposes students to practical design issues and processes and facilitates development of conceptual, analytical and project-planning skills required for a preliminary level of ship design with an emphasis on the application of skills developed in previous units directly to a practical design. The unit consolidates and expands on knowledge acquired in areas such as resistance, global and local structural design, stability, seakeeping and manoeuvring and enables the application of knowledge acquired in prior units to a rule-governed design project centered on a small-to-moderate sized vessel.
