People use different marine structure including both floating and fixed ones, to perform their duties and carry out associated activities on the water. Of course, all of those structures shall be designed and constructed in many shapes and sized varying from the small-sized canoe and up to the huge supertankers and drilling rigs.
Naval architecture is one of the most important engineering disciplines dealing with the ship design technology. In order to build the floating structures mentioned above, ship builders require properly developed design drawings, plans and calculations, and all of these are normally prepared by the naval architecture professionals, i.e. naval architects. That is why proper knowledge of all principles of naval architecture must be possessed as necessary.
Naval architects work on determining of the shape and size of the vessels they design; then, they estimate the stability and propulsive power of the vessel, calculate the strength of the vessel’s structure. After that, the designer proceeds to the materials to be applied, arrangement of the vessel, machinery and equipment, and other matters, all based on the sound knowledge of the naval architecture without which any design would not be possible.
