Liner shipping companies engage in strategic cooperation to deal with the market’s overcapacity, capital intensiveness and volatile freight rates. However, these partnerships do not reach their full potential and have lowered the level of service in the industry. To identify how carriers would be able to realise further synergies, this study has...

The negative effects of global warming can already be noticed. The burning of fossil fuel not only contributes to global warming, but also to the reduction of air quality, especially in urban areas. In order to limit the climate change, as well as to improve the air quality, more and more vehicles are replaced by emission free versions. This...

The international maritime sector accounts for about 2% of all global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the main greenhouse gas that causes global warming. Nations meeting at the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London have proposed an initial strategy for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships,...

When propellers are operating near the free surface,  phenomenon called ventilation might occur. Due to insufficient immersion and high thrust loading, the propeller draws air, resulting in a reduced thrust. Reduced thrust may have consequences such as loss of propulsive power, control and steerability, and may therefore be...

The design of polar expedition cruise ship is not a trivial task to the naval architect due to the complex nature of the ship itself. Concept exploration are hereby required to improve the understanding of the design problem and identify its challenge as well as possible solutions. However, it is always difficult to generate the technically...

In the early 00 of this century, Keuning et al. (2007) looked into the hydrodynamic forces on the rudder and the influence of the hull and keel on these forces. Among others, they have assessed the lift and drag forces on the rudder. One of the outcomes of this study was an asymmetric lift curve; for negative rudder angles the rudder seems to...

Dykstra Naval Architects are regularly designing large classic sailing yachts or motor-sailors, of which the draft is an important design restriction.The sailing performance is increased by adding lift-generating appendages,without increasing the draft. An example is a retractable centre board, havinga big influence on the sailing properties....

During the early stages of ship design exploration, design freedom is abundant but problem knowledge is scarce and most costs are already committed. This amounts to an incentive to look at the influences of the requirements on a design, to better understand how a concept is defined. This thesis investigates the operational architecture...

In this thesis the differences between the monohull and semi-submersible are investigated. For a general heavy lift crane operation and its operational profile, the difference is performance and total cost are calculated. These are used to determine the turning point, the point where the semi-submersible is more favourable for a heavy lift crane...

Currently there are three methods of calculating the Dynamic Positioning capability of a vessel namely: static calculations, real-time time domain simulations and fast-time time domain simulations, although the outcome of the last two should be identical. In each of these methods a set of input variables is required to perform the calculations....

Constructing the general arrangement of a ship tends to be a very complex naval architectural problem. There are multiple systems that all work integrally. Some of these systems need to be placed together, others need to be separated and some systems probably need to be both at the same time for different objectives. The preliminary ship design...
