DNV—GL — DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF LARGE MODERN YACHT RIGS
|D O W N L O A D|
The requirements of the present DNV GL standard shall apply to the sailing yachts having a length exceeding twenty-four meters. The main scope of the document is the structural integrity of the Bermudian rigged mono- or multihull yachts having one or more masts with the spars manufactured either of CRP, standing for the carbon fiber reinforced plastics, or from aluminum alloys; this includes dimensioning of the rigging, mast/boom sections and local construction around fittings.
The publication covers the verification and certification systematics including general procedures and technical documentation involved, and major principles of design and construction including determination of the rig loads and working loads and local and global analysis. A separate chapter has been devoted to the materials and fabrication. The rest of the volume addresses the rigging itself, fitting and equipment, their maintenance, coating and corrosion protection, lightning protection, pre-delivery inspection and many other issues considered important for the design and construction of rigging for the above mentioned types of sailing yachts. The associated documentation is dealt with in the appendix.
