Increased propeller loading on large ships makes the avoidance of hull vibration correspondingly more difficult. The problem of the shipbuilder is compounded by the owner's insistance on numerical performance criteria, and in some cases on specific guarantees. The dilemma of the shipbuilder is discussed within the loose framework of all the uncertainties attendant to reliable prediction of ship vibration performance for a specific class of ships.
