DESIGN GUIDE FOR SHIP STRUCTURAL DETAILS
|Publisher||Ship Structure Committee|
|D O W N L O A D|
Over the past decades, the members of the Ship Structure Committee have collected and analyzed extensive service cases of the unsatisfactory vessel designs concerning their structural part. The material contained in the document is intended to help the ship designers, including both naval and commercial ships, to specify the cost effective and technically sound details. The details provided in the pages of the present guide combine the service experience with the costs of fabrication.
There are also many data tables, diagrams, pictures and other supplementary materials intended to help the ship designers when selecting the appropriate details of the structure. First of all, the authors provide a brief overview of the sample failures of the ship structures, structural tolerances and material fatigue, as well as general philosophy of the ship design.
The performance of the details is covered in the separate chapter, followed with the information on the estimated man-hours needed for the fabrication. Several practical recommendations conclude the main part of the guide. There are also three appendices with the additional information making the guide even more useful.
