Ocean/Naval Design

is an introductory course to design in naval architecture and ocean engineering. It introduces the design challenges in a marine setting. A series of modules will familiarize the students with the main design issues. The first module covers the basic economic question of why ships are built. This is followed by an examination of the materials of construction and the primary fabrication method – welding. The third module deals with manufacturing, including design for manufacturing and the workflow process itself. The final module examines methods of marine design and performance evaluation. This covers numerical and experimental simulation methods and design software. There are several relevant labs and a design project.

LH: at least six 3-hour laboratory sessions per semester


Ocean Engineering Hydrostatics
