Final Year Project

My final year project was titled “Preparing for the next generation of super large containerships”. It involved research into the reasons for the increase in the size of container vessels and the implications. I calculated principle dimensions and powering requirements using a design spiral calculation for a 12,000TEU vessel and checked the intact stability for different loading conditions using Autohydro software.

I carried out a presentation on the project, using Microsoft PowerPoint and afterwards there was a question and answer session.
