Note:

Introduction

In this unit, students learn how to determine hydrostatic data for any hull form, and predict the influence of hull form on vessel stability characteristics. Students are also introduced to means of determining a vessel's global longitudinal strength and methods of analysing local structure. Additionally students are introduced to an overview of the naval architectural design process and the more prominent regulatory constraints.
