CREATIVE SHIP DESIGN
Based on a discussion of current ship design approaches, two new methods are proposed that provide a more creative and constructively critical design approach. The first involves the application of computer-aided architectural design techniques to explore changes in ship layout design. The second method uses a comprehensive design philosophy that is open and responsive to new and creative techniques, but is still able to accommodate prevailing design constraints. To prove the usefulness of the first method, a computer-based architectural design technique is formulated and effectively applied to the layout design of a destroyer. Projected ship design developments and how they are provided for by an all- embracing design philosophy are discussed with an aim to justifying the utility of the second method. Radical design theories and strategies for future ship design conclude the paper.
