PROGRAM FOR SHIP'S HULL FAIRING, VARIATION, SHELL PLATE DEVELOPMENT AND HYDROSTATIC CALCULATION FOR MINI COMPUTERS
A numerically-controlled fairing process for the design and construction of ships for inland navigation is described. The hull surface definition program is based on a triangulation method and B spline interpolation and reduces the time for calculation of shell plate development to about 10-15 minutes, including the production of drawings. The paper outlines the basic procedures for hull fairing, storing into the memory and variation of the hull. Order from BSRA as No. 48,949.
