Selected topics regarding existing ship structural design tools and their future trends are discussed. The approach is more a philosophical one than an exact description of existing or evolving methods. A special emphasis is put on the treatment of new problems related to unconventional concepts, such as high speed vessels, multihull vessels, application of new materials etc., hopefully giving some critical insight to pertinent problems.
