PROBLEMS IN THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF LIQUEFIED GAS CARRIERS
The paper begins by providing a basic understanding of liquefied gases in order to understand the problems associated with this cargo. The methods of transport are broken down into four broad categories, accompanied by illustrations of typical tank arrangements for basic types of gas carriers. Ship design, structural materials, welding, insulation, secondary barriers and testing are discussed. The author deals with the principles of the problems in the major cost areas of these expensive ships, stressing the attitude of the classification societies toward the safety aspects in design, building and operation.
