Research and development work in China in the area of computer aided ship design is reviewed. It is reported as having passed the following stages: (1) individual technical calculations and mathematical fairing of ship lines; (2) analysis of principal particulars with the application of optimization techniques; and (3) the development of integrated ship design systems. The next goal is to commercialize the numerous computer programs that have been developed, making them suitable for use on microcomputers and able to be utilized by a wider group of users. The work will be of value for preliminary design, the design and analysis of hull structures, and price estimation for specific types of ships. It will eventually change the configuration of the ship design process in China.
