THE ENGINEER AND THE INITIAL CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF MARINE SYSTEMS

The engineer's multifaceted involvement in the transformation of an abstract idea for a marine system into a physically and fiscally feasible conceptual design is described. The inherent duality of the engineer's role throughout the design evolution is emphasized. First, general principles are discussed, then a methodology for applying those principles to design is developed.
