The structural arrangements of a container ship are bound much more by its fine hull form and cargo arrangements than other kinds of ships, and the rules of the classification societies for the construction of container ships have not been established. For this reason, more items of the structural design must be examined in the early stage in building container ships. On the other hand, various kinds of computer programs are available for designing ships. These programs, however, require enormous manpower and time for preparing input data and summarizing output data. In view of the situation described above, a computer-aided design system has been developed and CONDESS (CONtainer ship initial DESign System), in which the computer and plotter are substituted for manpower in routine works i.e. calculating, rewriting data, drawing and so on in order to save time and manpower on the initial design stage.
