MIDSHIP SECTION DESIGN OF HATCHCOVERLESS CONTAINER SHIP WITH SPRING SUPPORTED CELLGUIDE SYSTEM

This paper is mainly concerned with the applications to develop an optimum structural design procedure for a hatchcoverless container ship with a spring supported cellguide system. The SUMT procedure combined with the direct search method is applied to the solution of the nonlinear optimum design problem to find an optimum midship section arrangement. For an object function of midship section design, the total sectional area of all the longitudinal members of a midship section is selected. Design variables which are chosen in the optimization are the longitudinal spacing of side shell and deck, thickness and height of deck longitudinals. Lloyd's Register rules are applied to determine the scantlings of the longitudinal members. A more effective cellguide system is suggested from the viewpoint of the spring stiffness arrangement and magnitude.
