ESSENTIALS FOR ANY SHIP SURFACE DEFINITION SYSTEM ORIENTATED TO STEELWORK PRODUCTION
The Authors, of B.S.R.A., describe some aspects of the BRITSHIPS system that they identify as being essential for any system designed to supply shipbuilders with production and manufacturing information for hull steelwork. These aspects, which are illustrated by examples drawn from the practical applications of BRITSHIPS, are examined under the headings: 1. Introduction. 2. BRITFAIR (Hull surface definition--Stem profile--Stern profile--Flat of bottom and side--Knuckles). 3. BRITSHELL (Definition of longitudinal structure--Description--Storage--Straking arrangements--Manual description--Using existing information--Defining the shell parts--Curved part development). It is mentioned that close communication with the Industry during the application and continuing development of BRITSHIPS has provided a useful channel which has stimulated the exchange of information between various shipyards and B.S.R.A.
