HYDRODYNAMIC DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT ON HIGH SPEED CELLULAR CONTAINER SHIPS IN MHI

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. have delivered several classes of large sized, high powered and high speed cellular container ships in the past ten years. Those ships are classified into 3 generations in view of their principal dimensions, power, speed and economical aspects. Major problems in the design and construction of ships were encountered in relation to their large size, high powered propulsion engine, high service speed together with serious demand for improvement of economical aspects of ships. This paper outlines the hydrodynamic problems raised in the design of those ships and investigations made on propulsive performance, propeller, manoeuvrability and seakeeping quality. Those investigations were consolidated into successful design of the high speed container ships with excellent performance.
