Abstract:

This thesis presents the effort to incorporate a numerical optimizer into an existing ship design synthesis math model. The goal is to improve the functionality of the model while retaining the intrinsic value of the models friendly user interface, which is greatly advantageous for its use as a learning tool. A description of the math model and its origin and intent are presented along with a discussion of numerical optimization techniques and tools. The integration and linking software is described along with the actual Integrated Ship Design System. Results of comparison and sensitivity studies are also presented.
