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.
Guide to procedures for designing ship's hull
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 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.
A naval architect has to consider several aspects while planning a ship’s hull form during the designing and construction process. Learn about the basics of choosing the right hull form of a ship in the article inside.
A lot of marine accidents involving failure of the ship hull structures occurs because of a crack in the midship region or a total split-off of the hull girder. This article gives an insight into the causes that lead to the failure of the ship’s hull girder from a longitudinal strength point of view.
X bow is a type of hull design which improves ship’s efficiency and stability at high seas. Find out the difference between X bow hull design and conventional hull design of ships.
Single hull and double hull tankers have several differences between them. However, there are both positive and negative aspects of both single hull and double hull designs.
