Hull Structural Strength

Oro World 10 minutes

Modern ship construction uses complex methods of strengthening based upon framing systems. There are two main systems of framing, longitudinal and transverse.

This course explores the use of framing systems in the strengthening of ships hulls as well as the Fore and After Peak construction that adds rigidity to vessels.
