None

Recommended Previous Knowledge:

Mechanis I - III
Structural Analysis of Ships I
Fundamentals of Ship Structural Design

Educational Objectives:

Professional Competence

Theoretical Knowledge

Students can reproduce the acceptance criteria for vibrations on ships; they can explain the methods for the calculation of natural frequencies and forced vibrations of sructural components and the entire hull girder; they understand the effect of exciting forces of the propeller and main engine and methods for their determination

Capabilities

Students are capable to apply methods for the calculation of natural frequencies and exciting forces and resulting vibrations of ship structures including their assessment; they can model structures for the vibration analysis

Personal Competence

Social Competence

The students are able to communicate and cooperate in a professional environment in the shipbuilding and component supply industry. 

Autonomy

Students are able to detect vibration-prone components on ships, to model the structure, to select suitable calculation methods and to assess the results
