APPLICATION OF OPTIMIZATION METHODS WITHIN STRUCTURAL DESIGN. PRACTICAL DESIGN EXAMPLE

The use of the automated plane frame design program previously described is discussed. A special adaptation for tanker transverse frames includes more realistic frame support conditions than otherwise obtainable. For the rather complex structural design of a 'Roll-On--Roll-Off' carrier, the frame design program is utilized together with other, general structural analysis methods. Both the methods and some results are shown.
