The design of a ship hull is based on the specific geometric definition of a hull which influences the hydrostatics, general arrangement, strength and aesthetics of the vessel. Learn about some common methods used to design ship’s hull.
When it comes to increasing ship’s efficiency, improving the hull efficiency is one of the most debated topic. Lately a lot of research has been put in developing ways to reduce the effects of friction on the ship’s hull.
Modern methods available for ship resistance evaluation are based on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). However, there are four basic methods that are used. Learn more about them inside the article.
Tunnel thrusters are used by ships to provide low-speed lateral manoeuvrability when docking and high thrust while at a standstill. Know more about tunnel thrusters inside the article.
Torsion box is a continuous structure in the top part of ship’s longitudinal bulkhead, freeboard deck and sheer strake which provides sufficient strength against torsional moments and other bending loads. Read inside the article to know more on the importance of torsion box.
Different types of hatch covers are used for ships depending on the type of the ship and the cargo carried. Learn about the main types of hatch covers used for ships in the article inside.
A variety of factors are taken into consideration while selecting propeller for a ship. Learn about ten important points considered for efficient ship propeller design.
A number of factors such as hydrodynamic efficiency, construction simplicity, flow patterns & aesthetics are considered for designing a ship’s stern. Learn about different types of ship’s stern inside the article.
Rolling is indeed one of the biggest problems to ships at seas. Learn about the different types of ‘Roll Stabilization systems’ that are used to control the effects of rolling on the ship.
