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.
The fundamental concept behind the understanding of intact stability of a floating body is that of Equilibrium. Let’s take a look at different types of factors responsible for intact and damaged stability of a ship.
Draft surveys are any calculations or studies carried out which record the draft of a vessel for the primary purpose of measuring its weight in any condition of loading.
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.
Let’s take a look at the Flettner rotors, the driving physical concepts, and ships that use this form of propulsion and stabilization.
