SELECTION OF PRINCIPAL PARTICULARS OF LARGE FULL-FORM VESSELS

Even in the earliest stages of ship design, the effect that the ratio of principal dimensions and the block coefficient have on the drag, hull mass, deadweight and machinery power of cargo ships cannot be ignored. If principal hull parameters are changed, the drag factor, wetted surface area, propulsion factor and structure mass must be recalculated in seeking the process of even approximately optimal solutions. The information that exists regarding this problem is often inadequate or inconvenient to use. The problem is therefore reconsidered in its relation to large full-form ships, and with regard for recently-introduced materials and new trends in design practice.
