Abstract:

This effort is based on work that was pursued with the object of developing a method that would show the main dimensions of any projected ship during the early design stages. The approach explained is completely novel. The reported methods and the determination of the correction factors that go with it can be used for many other preliminary design cases and can furnish valuable information in these cases as well. The method is based on the separation and individual treatment of the various weight groups such as steel outfitting and machinery. These individual weights were determined as functions of the design requirements. Author
