CONSTRUCTION OF SHIP SUPERSTRUCTURES USING MODULAR ACCOMMODATIONS UNITS

This article concerns the modular method of superstructure construction in which prefabricated modular cabins gathered into a special frame through hull openings are horizontally or vertically loaded into their assigned places. Although modular construction is acknowledged to be advantageous, overall, it does have certain shortcomings; it is these problematic aspects that are looked at. Recommendations are offered on how best to size, design, install and connect unit modules in ways that avoid or overcome these problems.
