Ship Design JEE503

Launceston

Note:

Introduction

In this unit, students develop the techniques required for the design of surface vessels. They develop the conceptual and analytical skills necessary at a detailed level of ship design with a particular emphasis on design driver identification and initial parameter estimates and the effects of regulatory, practical and economic constraints on design. Students are also introduced to the concepts of ship behaviour in waves and the process of evaluating the seakeeping and maneuvering characteristics of a vessel. Students will develop a concept design based on an appraisal of operational requirements via a clearly structured and rational process with a shortlist of fundamental integral systems for a concept design.
