SOME EXAMPLES OF THE APPLICATION OF THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD TO SHIP STRUCTURE

The paper describes briefly several typical applications of the FEM to ship structures of various kinds. The normal hull approval procedure consisting of two and three dimensional frame analysis, as well as two-dimensional in-plane element models of the most highly stressed regions is described. For a special type of LNG-carrier a combined deflection and stress analysis is described, with special reference to the necessary levels of reliability for such structures. A typical example of an engine room vibration analysis is also included.
