About this subject
Upon successful completion of this subject, the student should be able to:
- Calculate hydrostatic data for any hull form and predict the influence of hull form parameters on a vessel's stability characteristics;
- Demonstrate the use of various analysis methods for both global and local structures within the elastic and plastic regimes;
- Design an efficient hull structure compliant with practical operational requirements and appropriate codes and regulations; and
- Produce a limited set of design drawings to industry standards.
- Refer to MyLO for study topics
This subject equips students with a knowledge of vessel hull forms, hydrostatic concepts and parameters, structural analysis methods and phases within the design process. This knowledge can then be applied to obtain solutions to practical problems pertaining to the design of ships' hulls and structure. The subject builds upon prior undergraduate engineering knowledge.
