Advanced Naval Architecture and Ship Construction JNE319



Advanced Naval Architecture & Ship Construction provides students of marine engineering with an applied knowledge of both fundamental and detailed concepts of a vessel’s hydrostatics, resistance and structure and their associated practical implications. The unit is essential to an adequate knowledge within any marine engineering degree. The unit provides the naval architectural context within which certain onboard operations are conducted and explains the reasons underpinning the vessel’s response and performance. Hence the unit forms one foundation for concurrent and subsequent studies within the course.
This unit meet the requirements for knowledge, understanding and proficiency set out by the Maritime Training Package TDM60207, the STCW 2010 (Manila Amendments) and Table A-III/1 and AIII/2 of the STCW code.

Learning Outcomes

  • Predict and interpret a vessel’s response to any proposed loading or damaged condition from lever and moment curves and other pertinent data.
  • Contribute meaningfully to the undertaking of an inclining experiment and dry-docking operation according to industry best practice.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of fundamental hull design and the prediction of a vessel’s resistance and powering requirements.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the principles of a rudder’s action and possess the ability to predict the associated forces, torque and stresses incurred.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of practical issues with respect to the design, selection or modification of a vessel’s structure and/or structural component.
