Determination of optimum hull form for passenger car ferry with regard to its sea-keeping qualities and additional resistance in waves


Warianty tytułu

Języki publikacji



This paper presents a method which makes it possible to determine optimum hull form of passenger car ferry with regard to selected sea-keeping qualities and additional resistance in waves. In the first phase of investigations a hull form characterized by the highestqualities was selected from the list of similar ships. Next, its optimum dimension ratios were determined. Design criteria were formulated by using a method based on deterministic scenarios, but objective functions of partial targets were determined in the form of artificialneural networks. To select the best design variants elements of fuzzy logic were used, that made it possible a.o. to show merits of the design by means of linguistic variables. Such approach made it possible to find the best hull form and its dimensions from the point of view of all considered criteriasimultaneously
