Authors: Höglund, Andreas

Abstract: Conventional merchant ship design is a complex process where each part of the process is strongly connected to the other. In order to achieve a good design everything needs to be put together in an understandable way. A web design tool is created and used for development of ship concept designs. With information about the transport mission it is possible to generate a complete ship through all the design steps with proposed hull forms, propeller concepts, main engines and get performance indicators such as fuel consumption and EEDI for the current ship. Since a merchant ship has different loading conditions depending on the amount of cargo, and is operating in different weather conditions it is of big importance that the design is adapted to the right conditions. The user is able to specify the service conditions and design the propeller accordingly. The web design tool is validated with three existing merchant vessels with good results. It will help naval architects to provide a quick concept at the early design phase and can be used in education to extend students knowledge in a more substantial way about merchant ship design.
