Strength analysis of hull structure in container ships
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
This class guideline (CG) should be considered in connection with DNV GL Rules for Classification of Ships, DNVGL-RU-SHIP Pt.3 Hull and DNVGL-RU-SHIP Pt.5 Ch.2 Sec.1 Container Ships.
This CG describes the scope and methods required for structural analysis of container ships and the background for how such analyses should be carried out. The description is based on relevant rules for classification of ships.
The DNV GL rules for classification of ships may require direct structural strength analyses in case of a complex structural arrangement, or unusual vessel size.
Structural analyses carried out in accordance with the procedure outlined here and in DNVGL-CG-0127 Finite Element Analysis will fulfil the requirements to calculations as required by the rules.
Where the text refers to the rules for classification of ships, the references refer to the latest edition of the rules for classification of ships.
