Abstract:

This research project was performed under the National Shipbuilding Research Program. The project, as part of that program, is a cooperative, cost shared effort between the Maritime Administration and Avondale Shipyards, Inc. The development work was accomplished by Georgia Institute of Technology GIT Engineering Experiment Station under subcontract to Avondale Shipyards. The overall objective of the program was improved productivity and therefore, reduced shipbuilding costs to meet the lower Construction Differential Subsidy rate goals of the Merchant Marine Act of 1970. The studies have been undertaken with this goal in mind and have followed closely the project outline approved by the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers SNAME Ship Production Committee.
