HULL STRUCTURAL DESIGN FOR A 40,000 DWT DOUBLE-HULL PRODUCTS CARRIER

This paper is intended to provide a global to local overview of the design process and analytical methods used to evaluate the structural design of a 40,000 DWT products tanker for strength, producibility, and fatigue resistance. The global design process will discuss selection of key parameters, such as transverse web spacing, longitudinal stiffener spacing and access requirements. The local design will consider critical structure for reduction of stress concentration fatigue as well as producibility issues.
