Lärandemål (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The aim of the course is to introduce the student how the first principles of mechanics are applied to the ship structural design. After the course the student knows: how the ship structure affects the safety, production and maintainability of the ship (function of ship structure); how the ship is constructed from plates and beams (ship construction method); how the structural design is linked to the other ship design disciplines (structural design principles ); how loads, response and strength are connected and when these can be assessed separately for different hierarchical levels (strength analysis of ship hull) and how the principles of mechanics are utilized in ship structural design rules and what are the limitations of the rules (limit state analysis in ship structural design).

Innehåll (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

General design aspects; Loads on marine structures; Analysis of stress and deflection of hull girder and substructures; Load-carrying capability and structural performance; Reliability; Material selection and production.
