Description

Structural Arrangement Midship and Hull Fittings is a free online course that begins by introducing you to the different functions of the components present in the midship region. This course will introduce you to the midship structural arrangement for a general cargo ship, and container ship. This course will teach you about the impact loadings on the external surface of a ship. The definition and concepts of slamming, pounding, and panting during ship navigation will be covered in this course. This course will also introduce you to the duration and nature of slamming pressure. You will learn about the damage sustained by a vessel due to hydrodynamic impact loading, along with the different forms in which it can manifest. The division of the ship structure into bow, stern, as well as midship structures, will also be covered in this course. The functions of the different strengthening members of the bow, midship, and aft sections of the ship. You will also learn about further division of the ship’s structure into the longitudinal, transverse, combination, as well as the double hull system.

This course then explains the varying characteristics of the forward and aft constructions of a ship. The components of the forepart of the ship some of which include; collision bulkhead, Spurling pipe, and cofferdam will be covered in this course. You will learn about the structural arrangement and features of the aft of a ship, along with the components of the aft. This course also explains the features of watertight and weathertight doors.
