Abstract : The filament winding of a ship hull 150 ft. long was studied to define the problems and possible solutions associated with this method of manufacturing a ship hull out of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP). Winding machine and mandrel concepts were reviewed, as well as structural requirements and possible materials. A design of a 1/5 scale (30 ft.) hull and mandrel was developed, and recommendations made as to tasks that would need to be undertaken to successfully build such a model, and eventually a ship.
