  • Ship Design and Performance for Masters and Mates

    Authors

    235b

    Abstract

    The book provides key information on ship design and performance. It is divided into two parts - part 1 illustrates how a ship is designed from limited information supplied from the ship owners to the shipbuilders. The first chapters in this part deal with determining the main dimensions, how group weights are estimated and analysing capacities and hydrostatics for new vessels. Chapters 5 to 8 in this part deal with types of ship resistance, speed and power and chapter 9 examines preliminary design methods for a ship's propeller and rudder. Part 2, the first two chapters give particulars relating to to modern merchant ships and chapters 12 to 16 cover the various ship trials carried out by the ship builder on a newly completed ship. Chapters 17 to 19 explain the problems of ship squat and ship interactions in confined waters. Chapter 20 looks at ship vibration and methods to reduce it. Chapter 21 discusses performance enhancement in ship-handling mechanisms (rudders, retrofits etc.). Chapter 22 considers improvements in propeller performance.

  • Engineering economics and ship design

    Shelf Location

    235c

    Abstract

    The subject of Engineering Economics and Ship Design has been treated in a general way as the intention is not to include any extensive coverage of formal economics or detailed ship design, but to show how the two are related. The primary purpose of the book is not to assist decisions about whether to build, when to build or where to build, but rather what to build. The report is divided into three parts: The supply and demand for marine transport and shipping's economic environment; The detailed mechanics of making engineering economy calculations; and Application of the principles to ship design (which also compares alternative ship designs, and looks at the optimal ship).

  • Ship management into the 21st century - are the ship manager doing the right thing or just doing the thing right?

    Authors

    Shelf Location

    213d

    Abstract

    The view is expressed that the duties of the ship manager should not be simply to manage the ship but rather should take the initiative and act as a leader in its field. Firstly the shipping industry is looked at. Next ship management is discussed in some detail. After this professionalism and leadership are considered followed by leadership development.

  • An innovative compartment modelling and ship calculation system

    2003

    Abstract

    A non-manifold geometric modelling kernel is presented. This kernel has been developed to generate and manipulate non-manifold models such as ship compartment models. The kernel includes PLACE and SPLIT operations for efficient compartment modelling and ship calculation. Based on this kernel an innovative compartment modelling and ship calculation system called EzCOMPART is developed. This system can increase design productivity by supplying easy and convenient compartment modelling and ship calculation methods. To evaluate the applicability of EzCOMPART it was applied to various ships' compartment modelling and ship calculations. Using ExCOMPART a designer can easily and rapidly carry out compartment modelling with accurate ship calculation results. Future work is outlined.

    Abstract

    An integrated system for the optimisation of ship line is presented. The system is called SHLIS and can provide almost all kinds of excellent ship line and accurate ship speed predictions. SHLIS is made up of three parts: SHLDATA is a newly developed database system for models and ships' parameters and test results; SHLMAIN is a rapidity performance prediction program including ship's performance-estimation method and model-ship correlation method two aspects; NUBLINE is a professional software for ship line design.
