Major changes in the size, shape and performance of ships will create a severe challenge to the technical skills of ship structural designer. Fortunately, the groundwork has already been laid for the technology required to support him. The nature and quality of this technical base is discussed and gaps are identified. The serious need for closing the interface between researcher and designer is noted. References were selected to give a broad background in progress to date, and an easy initiation into all facets of the topic.
