ABS has issued AiP for the design of a wide breadth, single row, near-shore LNG Floating Production Storage Offloading vessel (FPSO) hull with a jetty-moored system developed by DSME.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
