The attractive possibility of minimizing ordering, handling and warehousing problems by employing uniform longitudinal scantlings and constant plating thicknesses throughout the midship section led to the decision to carry out an investigation of such a design methodology. The design technique proved to be feasible, but less economical that conventional techniques of midship section design. A computer tool for the systematic variation of longitudinal intervals has been developed and is now ready to be applied to midship section design with varying structural materials and different plating thicknesses and longitudinal scantlings.
