The content of the publication is focusing on the most important areas of the preliminary ship structural design, presenting the relevant information in clear and easily understandable manner. The authors have covered the critical aspects of the design together with the general requirements as well as standard established formats.
In the meantime it shall be understood that the dimensions of the vessel and sizes of all structural members involved are directly affecting the decisions made during the design process. One of the advantages of the approach applied by the authors of the volume is that it may be used with different ship types.
In addition to that, subject approach will allow ship designers to get to the optimum structures in accordance with their practical measures of merit. There are three structural design levels and the present publication focuses on the second level which is considered a central one.
The concept design is linked to the geometrical characteristics of the structure while the preliminary design is applied to establish the structural dimensions, or so-called scantlings of the essential structural members. Finally, the detail design deals with the local matters including openings, welding joints, local reinforcements etc.
