Application and scope
Overview of different analysis levels
In order to achieve the objectives described in , two different analysis levels are defined. The two different analysis levels are applicable for the design of container ships according to the vessel characteristics as described in Table 1.

Findings from the more comprehensive Level 2 analysis may result in additional strengthening.
