RECOGNIZING AND USING PATTERNS IN PRELIMINARY SHIP COMPARTMENTATION
The internal configuration of conventional ships may be topologically represented as an aggregate of longitudinal, vertical, and horizontal sets. These sets are identified and analyzed. The use of an associative ring structure for maintaining a comprehensive description of these sets is discussed. These sets and the operators required to manipulate them form the foundation for an interactive design procedure. The naval architect develops these sets and operators by means of a special but logical dialogue. Once the ship's internal configuration has been defined it can be fitted into an external hull form. The naval architect may now perform macro or micro revisions to the resulting design. The implementation of this computer assisted compartmentation procedure is briefly described.
