This thesis presents the effort to incorporate a numerical optimizer into an existing ship design synthesis math model. The goal is to improve the functionality of the model while retaining the intrinsic value of the model's friendly user interface, which is greatly advantageous for its use as a learning tool. A description of the math model and its origin and intent are presented along with a discussion of numerical optimization techniques and tools. The integration and linking software is described along with the actual Integrated Ship Design System. Results of comparison and sensitivity studies are also presented

Boundary conditions and stability of a perfectly matched layer for the elastic wave equation in first order form Duru, K.; Kozdon, JE; Kreiss, G. (2015);In computations, it is now common to surround artificial boundaries of a computational domain with a perfectly matched layer (PML) of finite thickness in order to prevent artificially reflected waves from contaminating a ...
Romano, M.; Agrawal, B. (2004);The dynamics equations of a spacecraft consisting of two bodies mutually rotating around a common gimbal axis are derived by the use of the Newton–Euler approach. One of the bodies contains a cluster of single-gimbal var ...
A sensitivity study of numerical solutions of the South China Sea ocean model to various grids generated by grid generation technique Tran, Vinh X. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-12);The sensitivity of numerical solutions of systems of nonlinear flow equations (Navier-Stokes equations) to the grid used is investigated through the use of the South China Sea (SCS) numerical ocean model.
