DESIGN OF SHIP STRUCTURES BY MEANS OF NONLINEAR PROGRAMMING TECHNIQUES

In practical design problems using the sequential unconstrained minimization technique for cost and weight minimization of ship structures, the number of free variables easily becomes high and the structural analyses may also become complex and time consuming. Various methods are given by which the required number of redesigns during the search for optimum as well as the computer work involved in each such redesign may be reduced. Approximate behavior and constraint models in terms of simple polynomials have been used with considerable success and may be combined with an extrapolation technique that allows one to reduce significantly the number of response surfaces. A few examples of typical applications to practical ship design problems are presented.
