FUNDAMENTALS OF NAVAL SURFACE SHIP WEIGHT ESTIMATING

This paper describes how ship weights are estimated. Detail is presented concerning relationships between existing weight data and the characteristics of a new design as it develops from completion of feasibility design through contract design. Margin requirements are also discussed. The weight estimating ratios and factors presented, while not directly associated with a specific ship type, cover the weight classification groups which would be used in the design of a surface combatant.
