A2 - The multi-disciplinary nature of the ship design process;
A3 - The ship design problem and contemporary influences on ship design;
A4 - Ship design methods for deadweight, capacity linear and rule ships;
A5 - Design considerations related to the type of cargo and operation of the vessel;
A4 - Hull form design and hydrodynamic optimisation for sustainable operation;
A5 - The synthesis of a ship design solution.
Outline Of Syllabus
The development of the ship design process and modelling information; the ship design problem for different ship types; deadweight, capacity, linear and rule ships; methods of obtaining preliminary and capacity ratios; estimation of lightship components of mass; contemporary influences on lightship components; estimation of consumables; the design of ship lines; relationships between hull form and hydrodynamic performance in still water and waves; bow and stern design; design for seakeeping; Forward and Inverse Analysis; optimisation methods applied to ship design, genetic algorithm based hydrodynamic optimisation; mathematical representation of hull lines and surfaces.
This is practised through the provision of a practical ship design exercise that seeks to foster the skills of engineering judgement in the context of ship design. This ship design coursework provides a realistic insight into the synthesis of a balanced ship design solution and provides skills in the use of state of the art ship design software.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The use of lectures as the principle teaching method is an effective means to provide students with the acquisition of the sizeable and detailed knowledge base and facilitate the understanding of the module material (IKO1-9).
Practical sessions provide the forum for the knowledge and understanding developed through formal lectures to be intergrated into a substantial coursework exercise to design a general-purpose container friendly cargo ship (ISO1-4).
This ship design exercise provides a platform to exercise team-working, management, planning, initiative, organisational, interpersonal, problem solving and numeracy skills (ISO1-4).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The written examination oral presentation will assess the breadth of knowledge, understanding and ability to perform related ship design calculations.
The written examination will assess the medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of topics from the syllabus (IKO1-9) as well as assessing literacy, numeracy and critical thinking.
The Ship Design coursework provides an opportunity to put into practice the intended knowledge outcomes (IKO1-9) as well as providing students with the opportunity to demonstrate the following skills: Active learning; Synthesis and presentation of materials; Innovation and creativity; Problem solving. The Ship Design coursework uses state of the art ship design software and so provides assessment in the use of computer applications in this context as well as the intended skills outcomes (ISO1-4).
The word length for the ship design project is per individual contributing to a group project. Group size is normally 4 people.
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
