Ship Design Paper

Attracts Wide Interest

A paper on direct calculation methods in ship structural design presented by Lloyd's

Register of Shipping at a recent international shipbuilding symposium, "Preparing for the

Eighties," organized at Newcastle upon Tyne northeast England by Kongsberg Vapenfab- rikk of Norway, attracted international in- terest.

The paper discussed the need for direct calculation methods to complement classifica- tion society rules for the design of new or specialized marine structures.

The systematic analysis of the types of loads and the capability of structures were covered, together with failure modes and design criteria. The paper explained how, through procedural documents, such aspects as load intensities, modeling and design cri- teria levels were defined.

These definitions would assist in the design of bulk carriers, containerships, tankers and ro/ro ships. A short discussion was included about ways of improving and defining future direct methods to include the tolerances asso- ciated with modern ship production tech- nology.

Interest was shown, states Lloyd, by com- panies from the Far East, South America,

Asia, West and East Europe, and Scandi- navia.

The paper can be obtained by contacting the Hull Structures Department, 71 Fen- church Street, London EC3. Details and cop- ies of the Society's Procedural Documents are obtainable from Lloyd's Register's Print- ing House, Manor Royal, Crawley, West Sus- sex RH10 2QN, England.
