To prevent or remedy ship vibration it is important to avoid resonance and to reduce exciting forces. To do this, it is necessary to estimate the natural frequencies of various hull structures and the magnitude of exciting forces, particularly in the design stage. The prevention of vibration is more important than its cure, since the latter can be very expensive. The Authors present a practical design method for the prevention of ship vibrations, based on calculating the natural frequencies of the hull girder, superstructure, tanks, and other important structural units, and also on calculating the magnitude of exciting forces due to the propeller and the propulsion plant.
