MAN-COMPUTER GRAPHICS IN PRELIMINARY SHIP DESIGN

In the past few years, some developments in man-computer graphics interaction have moved out of R&D into the production Preliminary Ship Design environment. This paper describes interactive graphics program developments which allow the naval architect to take the basic ship hull parameters and generate a hull form, deck it out, shape the superstructure and then do detail compartment and equipment arrangements. The graphics software used and plans for implementation into a computer-based integrated ship design system are also discussed.
