Principles of naval architecture
The course will start with an introductory phase identifying a generic framework for ship design using the classical design spiral. Ship mission, main dimension and powering requirements are defined using statistical methods. Hull form definition is based on the hydrostatics, hydrodynamics and ship general arrangement. Definition of ship structure, equipment and machinery at conceptual level using reference techniques. Weight estimation is carried out using statistical methods and initial ship geometry.
After completing the course, the student:
- understands the different disciplines of naval architecture and different phases of the product development cycle.
- can identify the different design methods and tools for different disciplines and can select the design tools based on the design stage.
- remembers the basic terminology and notations of the naval architecture and search field specific literature for different design tasks.
