The building of sophisticated types of ships having various operational tasks to fulfill, often imposes rational solution of phenomena of sometimes contradictory character. So it was the case with a series of speedy hybrid roll-on/roll-of container ships. On such vessels the relatively complicated internal steel-work of the hull girder is exposed to the excitations of the powerful propulsive installation hence the possibility of appearance of vibrations and noise. To assure normal operational conditions of the vessel by structural and machinery reliability and to meet the requirements of human comfort for the crew, rational studies, related to the integral treatment of static and vibratory (free and forced) phenomena of the ship and her propulsive plant, have been undertaken for the concerned series of ships.
