Structure analysis of bow structure
MetadataVis full innførsel
The bow structure presents a significant portion of the hull structure weight, cost and fabrication time. In this thesis, with the purpose of the reduction of the weight, we arrange three of the panel configurations of the ship bow we have definited in different way, changing optimal parameters we have studied such as stiffener direction, stiffener spacing, support member spacing and plate thickness in the bowimpact spreadsheet in Naticus Hull, to find the optimal dimensions of the structure whose results should meet relevant DNV rules, and then simulate the optimal panel in nx to test strengthening enough to resist bow impact pressure. Lastly, the performances of optimized ship bow structure designs were then compared and it is concluded which configuration is better, and discussion and future work has been made in the last part.
