The syllabus will include: practical aspects of hull girder fabrication, such as sequence of welding, advanced welding methods and its advantages, accuracy control, etc, structural response of the hull girder, strength of ship structural components such as beams, columns, plates including the effect of initial imperfections such distortion due to welding & residual stresses. The course will also introduce the basic structural design of ships from the first principle including the ultimate strength analysis of structural components like stiffened plates which forms 80% of structural components of a ship shull girder. Ultimate strength analysis of ship hull girders will be done. A brief introduction of various regulations imposed by International Association of Classification Society (IACS) will also be reviewed, including common structural rule (CSR).
Engineers and scientists involved in the design of ships and ship systems. Personnel from ship management companies, oil companies, classification societies and ship builders will benefits from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory & practice.
