This unit equips students with a knowledge of vessel hull forms, hydrostatic concepts and parameters, structural analysis methods and phases within the design process. This knowledge can then be applied to obtain solutions to practical problems pertaining to the design of ships' hulls and structure. The unit builds upon prior undergraduate engineering knowledge.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (refer to How do I withdraw from a unit? for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2023 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2023 will be available from the 1st October 2022. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).
- Calculate hydrostatic data for any hull form and predict the influence of hull form parameters on a vessel's stability characteristics;
- Demonstrate the use of various analysis methods for both global and local structures within the elastic and plastic regimes;
- Design an efficient hull structure compliant with practical operational requirements and appropriate codes and regulations; and
- Produce a limited set of design drawings to industry standards.
