Module overview

This module extends the structural analysis principles to marine structural design and assessment, building on the fundamentals established in the previous “materials and structures” and “ship structural design and production” courses. Students will assess the design of marine structures and structural components by performing strength and buckling analyses under lateral pressure and in-plane loading.

Through a coursework, students will propose a design of a section of the strength deck of a specified vessel and evaluate it by investigating the full range of the failure modes under sea loads, reflecting on the wider context of structural design in terms of economic and environmental sustainability.
