|Semester 3 Credit Value:||10|
To introduce students to the standard approaches to the design of a wide variety of ship types.
Outline Of Syllabus
Understanding engineering design, design philosophy, design tactics, design models, adaptive and variant design, the design environment, physical and regulatory influences, tug and multi-purpose workboat design, divergent design solutions, design of fishing vessels, fishing vessel stability and motion analysis, safety and sustainability, the ship design problem, measures of design efficiency, design relationships and initial point design methods, influence of design parameters on performance, mass estimation and contemporary influences on lightship, hullform distortion, bow and stern refinement, cause and effect understanding through response surfaces, optimisation of hullform for resistance and seakeeping.
The module will include preschool reading, examples, an intensive school (five days), and a post school assignment.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Students are encouraged to develop their knowledge and understanding of the subject by independent reading for which they are given guidance in the distance learning material (IKO1-5). The preschool study is reinforced via lectures during the intensive school itself. The use of design during the intensive school, a work-based assessment and application after the intensive school also enable the students to learn. Subject specific skills (e.g. IT and project planning) are developed via the distance learning material, which is delivered by a web-based system (blackboard). Cognitive skills (problem solving/ decision making) are taught primarily through case studies and design classes, and developed through a work based assignment. Key transferable skills (communication, time management, ability to work alone etc) are developed through a work based post school assignment and via completion of the module itself, including the distance learning material (ISO1-11).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Written Examination||120||3||M||60||Unseen written exam - examined outside the normal timetable|
|Report||3||M||40||Postschool written report - maximum of 1500 words (Individual Assignment)|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
Knowledge and understanding are assessed via the unseen written examination and the written assignment. Subject-specific and cognitive skills are assessed via the module assignment, as are communication skills.
The Graduate Skills Framework Skills indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
