Course description

The course is subdivided into two main parts. The former focuses on all basics required to evaluate the ship geometry, starting from its body plan. Subsequently, it focuses on all topics related to the equilibrium and stability of equilibrium of free-floating bodies and ships. The second part of the course, instead, focuses on the basics of ship dynamics in calm water, with reference to the assessment of the main components affecting the ship resistance.

Knowledge and understanding: Students shall prove to know the main topics related to the assessment and evaluation of equilibrium conditions and stability of equilibrium for free-floating bodies, as well as the main components of ship resistance in calm water.

Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: Students shall prove to apply the acquired topics and theoretical proficiencies, required to evaluate the equilibrium conditions, the stability of equilibrium of free-floating bodies, as well as the main components of ship resistance in calm water.

Judgment autonomy: Students shall autonomously evaluate and assess the ship stability, applying the best resolutions to increase it.

Communicative Skills: Students shall acquire the skill of presenting a numerical application about the main topics of Naval Architecture, such as the ship hydrostatic calculations, and correctly applying the scientific language.

Learning Skills: Students shall be capable of continuously update their skills, by reading books, articles and rules (mainly in English), in order to acquire a good capacity of enhancing the own knowledge in the field of Naval Architecture.

Prerequisites

Even if not mandatory, it is suggested to have passed the exams of Analisi Matematica I and Fisica I.

Syllabus

Basic ship nomenclature. The body plan. Basic of hydrostatics and mass geometry. Geometrical similarity. The Computer aided design. Equilibrium of free-floating bodies.

Shifting of ship centre of mass by weight loading and unloading procedures. Equilibrium and stability of equilibrium of intact ships. Ship stability curves. Stability criteria for intact ships. The inclining experiment. Knowledge of ship stability curves, also with reference to the stress diagrams. Incidence of loading and unloading procedures on ship stability. Basics about the IMO Standard Marine Communication Phrases.
Fluids and their properties. Fluid cinematics. Basics of dimensional analysis. Fully submerged bodies. Bernoulli theorem and applications. Laminar and turbulent flows. Limit layer. Basics about resistance and lifting components. Main components of ship resistance in calm water. Viscous resistance and Reynold number. Wave resistance and Froude number.

Teaching Methods

Frontal lessons, discussion of case studies, reading of the main national and international rules

Textbooks

The teaching material (lecture notes in pdf format) is provided during the course.

Learning assessment

The exam consists of verifying the achievement of the previously defined educational goals, by an oral examination during which a numerical application, which is generally relative to the ship hydrostatic calculations, is fully discussed.
