PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF A NEW ADVANCED DYNAMIC BASED HULL STRUCTURAL STRENGTH DESIGN AND EVALUATION CRITERIA

A presentation is offered summarizing the technical features of a new dynamic based hull structural strength design and evaluation criteria for tankers developed by the American Bureau of Shipping as the most significant update of the traditional classification strength criteria in decades. The paper focuses on how this new criteria, utilizing engineering first principles, can be applied in a practical day- to-day design setting. This is in the form of a dedicated software applications system for use on IBM-compatible personal computers and engineering workstations. The procedures involved in applying the software system to the design and evaluation of tanker structures is discussed.
