Containership Design and Analysis (DES008)
Course Objectives and Benefits
The objective of this course is to accelerate the learning curve of participants in applying the ABS SafeHull for Containerships software for the design and assessment of container carriers according to the ABS Rules. Participants will conduct a SafeHull Phase A structural assessment according to the ABS prescriptive Rule requirements for a representative container carrier. This will be followed by the SafeHull Phase B structural evaluation using finite element analysis for the cargo hold region. Hand son exercises are used such as evaluating the fatigue strength of primary supporting members, transverse bulkheads, hatch corners and other critical structural details for the various loading conditions to impart practical understanding.
