Ship’s bottom structure is designed not only to give the required strength to withstand the weight of the cargo but also to resist the external hydrostatic loads that act on the bottom of the hull. Learn about the various important aspects that are considered while designing ship’s bottom structure.
The stability and equilibrium of the ship should remain perfect in all conditions. Intact and damage stability of the ship play an important role in deciding the seaworthiness of ship. Find out more about intact and damage stability inside the article.
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.
Let’s take a look at the final processes of the shipbuilding process followed by launching, outfitting and sea trials.
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.
It is worthwhile to mention that in most of the places describing the preliminary design of ship’s hull structures, utmost priority is given to the midship section, thanks to the global stresses such as maximum hull girder bending and buckling loads taken into account.
Get a general overview on the process of designing a ship’s general arrangement according to requirements of the owner and functionality of the ship.
