Reviews past and present modular ship concepts with a basic thrust toward detailing the latest advances in the state- of-the-art of modular design techniques which are being considered in future developments. A proposed methodology for the evaluation of ship modularity and module category definitions is provided. The crucial issues affecting the use of modularity are discussed, and the benefits and negative aspects of modularity in ship design are summarized. The impact of the modular concept on the ship design process is analyzed and conclusions are drawn as to the concept's technical and economic feasibility.
