STANDARDIZED STERN PROJECT

The Standardized Stern Project final report describes the development of a series of three standardized stern section designs intended for application over a wide range of merchant vessel types and sizes. The report examines both the technical and economic influences on design, including trade forecasts, demand for new construction, hydrodynamic limitations and propulsion requirements. The design development approach is summarized, and technical and economic feasibility analyses of the resulting designs are provided. The report concludes that the standardized stern concept could be employed to achieve very substantial gains in ship producibility with attendant reductions in unit cost. The concept's near-term marketability is evaluated, and recommendations for gaining industry acceptance are offered. A program for further development of the concept is proposed, including additional detailed design effort and prototype development. The Standardized Stern Project final report is arranged in three Volumes as follows: Volume I: Final Report presents a technical and economic overview of Standardized Stern design concepts. Volume II: Executive Summary provides a brief review of the study's conclusions and recommendations. Volume III: Appendix includes detailed project task reports, engineering drawings, tabulated data and other appended documentation.
