THE OPTIMUM ROUTEING OF PIPES IN A SHIP'S ENGINE ROOM
This paper deals with a computer program which is in development and aims to be an aid to the designer in routeing the pipes inside a ship's engine room. The routeing, by the program, occurs in two phases. In the first phase all possible equivalent routes are determined subject to the assumption that the pipes have no dimensions and without considering any interferences. The method developed for carrying this out is based on the dynamic programming technique. In the second phase, the routes are fixed in such a way that no interferences occur. It is the intention to do this interactive by the designer with the aid of a display.
