1.1 Scope and application

1.1.1 The scantlings of various hull members are to be based on the design values of accelerations given in Section 2 and the local loads due to lateral pressures, impact pressures, liquid pressures in tanks, dry cargo, stores etc. given in Section 3. Longitudinal strength is to be investigated as per Chapter 5 and 6.

1.1.2 Speed reduction may be considered in heavy seas to limit the accelerations to the design values. A table giving the allowable speeds versus significant wave heights is to be appended to the class certificate and also to be posted in the wheelhouse.

1.1.3 Alternative methods of load estimation based on model tests, full scale measurements or accepted theories may be specially considered.

1.2 Definitions

1.2.1 The forward perpendicular, F.P., is the perpendicular drawn at the forward end of the length defined in chapter 1, 2.6.18.

1.2.2 The after perpendicular, A.P. is the perpendicular drawn at the aft end of the length defined in Chapter 1, 2.6.18.

1.2.3 “Amidship” is at 0.5L aft of the F.P.

1.2.4 Depth, D, is the moulded depth [m], measured amidships from top of the keel to the moulded deck line of the uppermost continuous deck at side.

1.2.5 Draught, T, is the moulded draught amidships corresponding to the fully loaded waterline with the Ship floating at rest, [m].

1.2.6 The block coefficient, Cb, is the moulded block co-efficient calculated as follows:

1.2.7 Bw is the greatest moulded breadth of the hull(s) in m at the fully loaded waterline, with the Ship at rest.

1.2.8 Wave factor -

CW = 0.0856 L for L ≤ 90 m

= 10.75 - [(300-L)/100]3/2 for L > 90 m

Wave factor CW for service area notations would be reduced as follows:

Notation Reduction factor

RS0 1.0

RS1 0.8

RS2 0.6

RS3 0.35

1.2.9 For definitions of breadth B, maximum service speed V, displacement ∆ and other terms see Chapter 1, Sec.2.6.

1.3 Structural terms

1.3.1 The general terms used in the Rules for various structural components of the Ships are defined as under:

Strength Deck : In general, the uppermost continuous deck. Where a superstructure deck has within 0.4L amidships, a continuous length equal to or greater than (1.5B + 3H), it is to be regarded as the strength deck instead of the covered part of the uppermost continuous deck. (H is the height of the superstructure [m]).

Freeboard Deck : The freeboard deck is normally the uppermost complete deck exposed to weather and sea, which has permanent means of closing all openings in the weather part and below which all openings on the sides of the ship are fitted with means for watertight closing.

Superstructure : A decked structure on freeboard deck extending from side to side of the ship or with the side plating not inboard of shell plating by more than 4 percent of the breadth B.

Deckhouse : A decked structure above the freeboard deck with the side plating being inboard of the shell plating by more than 4 percent of the breadth B.

Girder : A collective term for the primary supporting members, other terms include:

− Transverse – transverse girder under the deck

− Web frame – side vertical girder

− Stringer – horizontal girder

− Floor – bottom transverse girder.

Stiffener : A collective term for secondary supporting members, other terms being

− Frame

− Reverse frame – transverse stiffener on the inner bottom

− Horizontal or vertical bulkhead stiffener.
