  • Comparative naval architecture of passenger ships

    Authors

    Philip Sims

    Date published

    2003

    Abstract

    This paper uses a Comparative Naval Architecture approach to discuss in four sections the unusual features of the Titanic the post-Titanic ships of the 1920s and 30s modern passenger ships and risk of unanticipated levels of damage to future ships. This paper starts by comparing the Titanic to ships before and after her. The ship features that seem frivolous (a huge fake fourth stack) or bad engineering practice (shallow watertight bulkheading forward) are explained. The operational background for owner/operators to make decisions like providing an inadequate number of lifeboat seats and proceeding full speed through a scattered ice field are described. The post-SOLAS 1929 ships are compared to Titanic and modern ships. In the larger framework the paper describes the continuing evolution of passenger ships the sources of danger to them and if there still is the possibility of "iceberg-like" surprises for modern ships.

  • Classification of naval support ships

    Authors

    Robert M Simpson

    Date published

    2008

    Abstract

    Lloyd's Register's naval ship classification regime was developed primarily for naval ships that have or will be designed or constructed in accordance with standards applicable to frontline naval ships and that will be operated in a naval environment. The regime covers a range of ships such as destroyers aircraft carriers and frigates and includes vessels with offensive and defensive roles. The advantages of ships operating within the naval ship classification regime are recognised by different navies. Changes to Lloyd's Regulations for the Classification of Naval Ships now allow for auxiliary naval ships used for the support of civil and naval operations to be brought within the scope of the naval ship classification regime. Naval auxiliary support ships may have a variety of roles including the movement of military and other personnel ammunition vehicles stores and fuels and their transfer other naval ships. They do not have a defined offensive role but may have limited self-defensive capability. In general the ships will also need to comply with other Lloyd's Register classification rule requirements of the International Convention standards for arrangements and equipment which are applicable to the ship type. The requirements and processes for the classification of auxiliary naval support ships within the scope of Lloyd's Register's Naval Ship classification regime are described.

    Abstract

    The book consists of the results of Professor Lindblad's studies and personal experiments during the course of many years. It provides a summary of literature from papers in technical journals and transactions and reports published by various technical societies, on aspects concerning the design of ships' lines and related topics. The scope of the book is limited, not covering smaller types of ships or warships. Chapters comprise of: Choice of the main dimensions (determining length and breadth of the ship, relationship between breadth and draught), Choice of the form coefficients (block, waterplane, prismatic), Full ships with block coefficients between 0.81 and 0.76, Ships with block coefficients between 0.75 and 0.71, Ships with block coefficients between 0.70 and 0.66, Ships with block coefficients between 0.66 and 0.60 and Ships with block coefficients lower than 0.60. The final chapter looks at Cross channel vessels.
