A PARAMETRIC STUDY ON GLOBAL HULL AND SUPERSTRUCTURE VIBRATION ANALYSIS BY MEANS OF THE FINITE-ELEMENT METHOD

This study presents a number of parametric variations on the finite-element modelling of ships for global hull and superstructure vibration analysis. The parameters studied are the effects of double bottom vibration, shear lag in the double bottom, the influence of the hull girder on the fundamental superstructure natural frequency, the effect of load condition, i.e. mass distribution, and the effect of the distribution of propeller-induced hull surface pressure field on the forced vibration level. The lower natural hull frequencies are compared with results by the classical Timoshenko beam and with measurements. A design study is carried out to change the natural frequency of a superstructure. Two ships are studied, a 60,000-dwt bulk carrier and a 12,500-dwt multipurpose carrier. Order from BSRA as No. 50,008.
