Ship Design

Hours: 1


Using as starting point the global community challenges and the specific industrial and Navies demands, the lecture aims at providing a general overview of the challenges associated to ship design process.

The focus is on the design of green and safe vessels, which is addressed: (a) defining the “green” concept within the context of ship design; (b) identifying the key elements responsible for ship pollution; (c) classifying the type of interventions that can be implemented during the design phase in order to deal with the international regulations (e.g., EEDI, but not limited to); (d) the possibility to largely complement and overcome the built-and-test design approach, using the simulation-based design (and optimization) procedure.
