MT2003 Maritime Technology

[Lecture: 26 hrs; Tutorial: 13 hrs; Lab: 0 hr; Pre-requisite: Nil; Academic Unit: 3]


Learning Objective :

The objective is to introduce to students concepts governing ship behaviour when the vessel is still and in motion.

Course Content :

Introduction to ship hydrostatics and buoyancy. Forces on plane surfaces and location of centre of buoyancy. Longitudinal and transverse stability and free surface effects. Trim.

Introduction to fictional resistance and wave making resistance. Hull strength, powering and model testing. Identifying different ship types.
