Report on Ship Structure Design Standards


The Ship Structure Committee announced the publication of new research reports. One of the new reports "Comparative Study of Naval and Commercial Ship Structure Design Standards" investigates the variety of rules and research currently available and evaluates the differences and commonalities to make recommendations for the development of future design standards.

All design standards have the same goal, which is to ensure acceptable performance of the system under consideration. To accomplish this, all design standards must anticipate the relevant design challenges and set criteria that will ensure that all designs will exhibit acceptable in-service behaviors. In most situations involving ship structures, the design process has become one of satisfying the structural standard. The process of structural design is now largely eclipsed by efforts to comply with standards. In order to improve vessel designs in future, it must be acknowledged that it is crucial to have the best possible structural design standards, because the vessels can only be as good as the available standards.

The primary objective of the project was to compare and evaluate the design criteria and standards currently used in naval and commercial ships for the hull and structural members. This report reviewed the basic concepts in several current ship and structures regulations. The design of bottom structure, as both local structure and as part of the hull girder was the specific focus. We expected to identify factors of safety in either the load or strength formulations or both.
