DESIGN ANALYSIS OF MARINE ENGINE AND INSTALLATION-FOUNDATIONS AS THE BASIS OF A CAD/CAM SOLUTION

Depending on the particular ship type, between 150 and 250 foundations are needed for the installation of engines, equipment, and block units. The foundations are connecting links between the aggregate blocks and the ship's structure. They are welded steel structures--consisting of semifinished products in the form of sheets, rolled sections, and pipes--that provide the requisite flat assembly surface for engines and block units, and convey into the ship's structure the forces and moments that arise during operation. As part of the task of providing a computer-aided preparation and foundation production process, the requirement arose for the broadest possible classification of foundations. This classification constitutes the basis for decisively shortening the time for structural and technological production preparation and for raising product quality.
