Learn about the main welding methods used in the shipbuilding industry and the common welding defects arising as a result.
Find out how the hull of a ship is designed for various factors taken into consideration during the entire lifetime of the ship, and how the design of a ship’s hull plays the most important role in the entire ship design and shipbuilding project.
Watertight bulkheads are vertically designed watertight divisions/walls within the ship’s structure to avoid ingress of water in the compartment if the adjacent compartment is flooded due to damage in ship’s hull. Learn about the construction, design and SOLAS regulations for bulkheads in the article inside.
A shipyard career option is a very unique one. Also since the shipbuilding process gets constant changes and updates, the career offers a person lot of learning opportunities.
Learn about the important aspects of dry docking of a ship, along with the calculations and analyses that go into creating docking plans and executing various aspects of ship stability.
Let’s take a look at intact stability criteria and inclining experiment, the two stages of ship design and construction where evaluation of GM is an absolute necessity and plays a major role in ensuring that the ship is stable.
The easiest and handiest tool for analysing a surface ship’s stability, is by graphs or curves. A ship designer or an officer on-board should be able to know the stability characteristics of a ship just by looking at the curves. Let’s understand curves of static stability of a vessel.
