Although the basic structure of the ship has been stable over the years, many changes have been made to various aspects of the ship’s design. According to the classical approach, five main points must be taken into account in the design of ships:
In relation to the different parts of the system and their interconnection Ships are independent units consisting of a number of interconnected systems that have a direct impact on the design of the ship. The design is expected to maintain an aesthetic approach with the scientific systems required for naval architecture.
In terms of operations, vessel and crew performance and response to external events Each ship has a number of important performance indicators that must be met in the design of the ship. Modern computer methods simulate different scenarios that affect ship design to improve ship interaction and ship efficiency.
Relates to the capacity at which the vessel operates Recent improvements in ship design, such as the integration of new materials, advanced propulsion units, modern safety and protection equipment, have different effects depending on the capacity of the ship. Whether it is a cargo or cruise ship, environmental considerations are an important driving force in ship design. In this sense, environmentally friendly ships have become an Hourly Requirement.
Refers to the performance of systems over time Assessing the life cycle of a ship and its systems is an important part of ship design. Being prepared for systems as their performance degrades over time increases design complexity. Natural damping should be taken into account and a holistic approach to the sustainable design of ships should be maintained.
In relation to stakeholder responses in ship design Several people are involved in the construction and commissioning of the ship. The ideal ship design should meet all the requirements of these stakeholders and evaluate them as priorities.
