METHODS OF REDUCING FITTING WORK DURING CONSTRUCTION OF A SHIP HULL IN THE BUILDING BERTH
PUTI UMENSHENIYA PRIGONOCHNYKH RABOT PRI POSTROYKE KORPUSA SUDNA NA STAPELE
Today labor input in fitting operations constitutes 40% of the total labor input required for the construction of a ship hull in the building berth. Therefore, reduction of the volume of fitting operations is one of the most important objectives of improvement in hull construction. Reduction of the volume of fitting operations should be achieved by: -- perfecting the technology of their execution (for example, mechanization of correcting technological displacements and dimensional allowances, perfection of the methods of straightening of hull structures); -- reduction in deviations in the form and dimensions of hull structures in the building berth, which in turn should be based on improvement of the design factors (rational division into sections, well-thought-out design of field connections, and so forth), as well as technological factors (raising the accuracy of fabrication of hull sections, expanding the area of application of preliminary contouring of the sections in the building berth, and so forth).
