DIRECT CALCULATION METHODS IN SHIP STRUCTURAL DESIGN
The need for more rational structural design methods is discussed together with Lloyd's Register's philosophy and recent developments in providing the marine industries with the technical requirements for direct calculation methods. It is explained that with the help of the Society's Procedural Documents, in association with its Rules, guidance and a framework are offered for the application of complex direct calculation methods for the design and safety of ships' structures. The paper ends with suggesting ways of improving the direct methods by taking advantages of progress being made in ship production technology.
