Application of the Genetic Algorithm at Initial Stages of Ships Design

Primjena genetičkog algoritma u početnim etapama nacrta broda

The main tasks for which the genetic algorithm is currently applied in shipbuilding are shown. The possibility of applying the genetic algorithm for determining the optimal characteristics of ships at the initial stages of design is considered. The formulation of the problem of parametric optimization for the initial stages of design is given. The features of such a problem and possible approaches to its solution are considered. Using the example of the problem of parametric optimization of small waterplane area twin hull ships, it is shown that the traditional methods of non-linear programming are not very effective. It is shown that one of the possible options for increasing the efficiency of searching for the optimal solution is the application of genetic algorithms. The mathematical bases of GA are considered and the scheme for finding the optimal solution using this method is described. The examples of test functions show the effectiveness of the genetic algorithm in comparison with traditional optimization methods. The results of solving the problem of parametric optimization of high-speed SWATH passenger ships are presented.
