Following a discussion of the reasons why smaller shipyards have been hesitant to adopt computer design methods, the paper reviews some recent developments in hardware which make it appropriate to reassess the situation. The applications of these facilities to hull form definition, piece parts definition and definition and development of shell plating are discussed with reference to numerical systems developed by B.S.R.A. for use in small and medium-sized shipyards. Order from BSRA as No. 49,026.
