module: Ship design

Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering

Goals

Students will be able to specify the ship system in terms of its relevant parameters. For this purpose, they are enabled to develop the main parameters of ships and their integrated subsystems for different transport tasks. They can assess the impact of global economic developments on transport demand and develop optimised concepts, they are able to carry out an analysis using various models for assessing profitability. The students are enabled to evaluate the influences of the relevant regulations regarding safety and environmental protection on the ship's transport system. You know the relevant security concepts and can implement them in the design process. Students will be able to specify the ship system in terms of its relevant parameters.

Homework

In order to deepen the acquired knowledge, additional homework will be handed out in the lecture-accompanying exercises.

Allocation of this course in study

This course teaches the principles of marine engineering. Thus, it is a compulsory module for those students who wish to specialize in the field of marine and ocean engineering.
Preliminary knowledge of the basic science and engineering subjects from the first three semesters is required in this module.
The contents and knowledge in this module serve as the foundation for the further modules of specialization in marine and naval engineering as well as for a master's degree in marine and naval engineering.
It is recommended to take the parallel course "Ship and Offshore Structures", which focuses on the structure of maritime systems and complements the contents of this lecture.

Exam

Oral exam, 30 minutes duration, the module examination is graded.
The date of the exam will be announced in the course of the semester. In order to gain permission to the examination, the homework must be successfully completed.
