In regard to oil tankers of approximately 130 - 250 thousand ton deadweight, optimum design of longitudinal strength members is undertaken. Ship size, main proportion, transverse web space and so forth are varied. Rule requirement specified by the Ship Classification Society of Japan is adopted as standard for design. A kind of nonlinear programing technique, SUMT is used for numerical search. By some numerical results obtained, trends of optimum longitudinal frame space, frame area and plate thickness are examined. Further-more the influence of using high tensile steel combined with mild steel and that of taking account of fabrication cost are studied.
