INTEGRATED TREATMENT OF STATIC AND VIBRATORY BEHAVIOUR OF TWIN-SCREW 553,000 DWT TANKERS

The construction of four tankers, each exceeding 1/2 million tons and equipped with twin-screw propulsive plant, required that particular attention be paid to the problem of static and dynamic interaction between the propulsion machinery and the hull. The paper presents the results of an integrated treatment of the static and vibratory characteristics of the structure using three-dimensional finite element models. An analysis of various parametric studies together with results of measurements made during sea trials is presented. Panel discussion.
