The application of current vibration technology to the design of ships is still in the development stage and can be expected to continue to be for some years to come. Although much progress has been made in recent years shipboard vibration control must still be considered and art in which the designer freely applies his own approach and techniques to insure satisfactory performance. In this paper the author presents his approach to this complex problem as applied to current commercial and naval shipbuilding programs. Recent findings, solutions to problem areas and recommendations for future research efforts are also presented.
