In the trend towards more efficient transportation, energy efficient operation and reduced environmental impact, ship hulls tend to become larger than before, while there is a desire to optimise the design towards lighter, more fuel-efficient ships. As a consequence, there is a growing need for increased understanding of how the different requirements and solutions affect the entire shipbuilding process. How will the future hull structures meet the requirements of strength, seaworthiness, environmental requirements and safety?
