Operating Procedure:    

 

The TD, on Management Dep.’s input, provides, according to the Planning Dep. decision, to the drawing up of the Basic Design and of the  Feasible Project using internal or external resources. For carrying out the pertaining work, the TD shall obtain all the necessary technical information, as drawings, 3D models, technical data and  so on. In case of turning to external companies’ work, the TD shall carry out an estimation of time and cost of the work entrusted outside, informing the Management for its decision.

The TD shall prepare and update an official file of all the work carried out, divided for work orders and for type of work (Calculations, Structure, Propulsion, Plants, Fittings, Furniture....) providing to the coding, revision sequence and kind of issuing (Preliminary, Feasible for building, for Consulting, Outdated).

The produced documents will be spread, if appropriate, for consulting during their preliminary drawing up, and only after the Management’s approval will be considered valid for building.

 

 

 

 

BASIC DESIGN

 

PHASE 1.1  - Basic layout analysis

 

The design input is given by the Preliminary GA, the 3D superstructure surface model  and by contractual technical SPECS supplied by the commercial sector (MYT).  What the SPECS indicate prevails and is bounding, therefore the preliminary GA and the 3D model only show approximately the layout and the look we would like to obtain. The yacht final outline derives from the actual adopted hull shapes which, even if they respect the volumes and the living surfaces, must satisfy the contractual requirements of  performance, as contractual speed, manoeuvrability, sea keeping behaviour, fire protection, intact and damaged stability, comfort. On the base of the that statement, the GA is subjected to the necessary changes to satisfy the requirements of performance, to define the more appropriate structure geometry and to house efficaciously the technical arrangements provided for by the SPECS.

 

The design development begins with a preliminary weight estimation in order to establish a preliminary volume and the main bodylines dimensions  LWL, BWL and T (draught).

According to the technical specs of naval architecture, which analyses the dimensional relationships  and the dynamic parameters belonging to the ship, the next step is the hull modelling choosing the right hull bodylines draught to the upper forms of upperworks where the stylistic requirements  prevail.

 

Given a bodylines’ geometry, first of all it is necessary to arrange the propulsion system in order to respect the minimum size of Engine Room on the base of machinery and other various systems. In this way one part of hull volume, exclusively dedicated to this aim, is bounded.

Furthermore, depending on the kind of propulsion adopted, the geometries of propulsion and steering hull appendages  can be defined.

 

The following step concerns the statement of structural geometry defining the transversal frameworks space and the main longitudinal  connections in order to optimize the utilization of the material employed for the building. Regarding the stability,  the hull is divided into compartments, which are divided by watertight bulkheads; while on the base of the habitability and of the technical bounds, it is divided into decks.

 

It is necessary then to define the Capacity Plan distributing in the hull the liquid structural deposit  to be embarked and the added non-structural tanks. 

 

At the end of these preliminary steps, it is possible to proceed to a GA revision in order to adjust it to the actual dimension of the vessel and of her internal partition, keeping the necessary spaces for the technical arrangement as: air conditioning control panel, ventilation systems, structural staircase trunks, Engine Room ventilation structural trunks, steering gear rooms, emergency generator room, other possible for special systems.

If this outline is not considered satisfactory, it is necessary to proceed to a change of the main dimension and of the vessel surface model. This step can involve a different weight estimation and, subsequently, of bodylines shapes.

 

Note: This phase should involve the buyer’s technical-commercial sector and be finished before the contract owner’s signature.

 

PHASE 1.2 – Control Calculations

 

What obtained during phase 1.1 must be submitted to a series of control calculations regarding:

 

a)                      The bodylines and their appendages to assure the speed, sea keeping and  manoeuvrability performances.

b)                     The power and range predictions based on mathematical regressions and/or  scale model experiences.

c)                      The vessel’s intact and damaged stability.

d)                     The hull scantlings according the adopted Classification Society. The direct calculation of particularly  stressed structures both with traditional systems and FEM analysis.

 

PHASE 1.3 – Structural Drawings

 

If the layout, weight and hull performances obtained in the previous phases are considered satisfactory and in compliance with the design aim, the following step is the drawing up of the Structural Drawings consisting of:

 

Structural Plan      Scantling Plan

                         Deck Plan

                         Midship Section and Watertight Bulkhead Model

                         Shell Expansion

                         Bow and Stern Structures

                         Frameworks sections collection

                         Reinforced areas

 

Schematic Diagram  Single-wire functional diagrams

                         Machinery and plant materials lists

 

Propulsion System  Main propulsion engines arrangements

                         Motion Transmission System

                         Engine Room Layout

 

Electrical System  Single-wire delivery diagram

                      Electrical balance

                         Short-circuit Streams Calculation

 

Drawings and calculations prepared during this phase must be submitted to the Classification Society’s preventive approval to be utilized in the following design development.

 

________________________________________

 

 

Phase 1 must be developed by the Company’s Technical Department  using its know how, procedures and instruments. The utilized human resources will be internal or external depending on the working load.

STRUCTURAL DESIGN

 

PHASE 2.1 – Work model preparation

 

 The items creating the structural drawing (DRW) are:

 

-          Drawings and calculations deriving from the basic design

-          Classification Society’s and other contractual Societies’ Regulations (MCA, Solas, Marpol, ecc)

-          SERIM structural standard

 

The structural design is subdivided into three main lines which must be developed, if possible, simultaneously in order to feed in an optimized way the building and minimize the realization time.

 

These lines are:

 

a)                      STRUCTURE:          Production of structures, plating, plating nesting and cut

b)                     PLANTS:           Main machinery arrangement; 3D Piping

c)                      FITTINGS:                Furniture and fitting plans

 

It is essential to achieve the aim the timeliness of the information collection necessary to develop each document.

 

In addition to the available information developed in the Basic Design, it is necessary to define as soon as possible the commercial supplies in order to find the technical documentation regarding them and which is absolutely necessary to go on with the work.

 

In order to allow the contemporaneous development on the three lines, the first step to do concerns the most precise definition of:

 

3D SURFACE MODEL OF THE BUILDING WITH OUTLINES

AND A SCHEMATIC STRUCTURE WIREFRAME

 

On the surface of the model, the outlines of frameworks, decks, hull and deck longitudinal structures, the plating edges will be reported in order to lean on them the single structures and analyse the passages position.

Making available this model it will be possible to proceed with the structure cut, the machinery and piping arrangement and to begin the furniture and fitting internal partition. Moreover, the further the work proceeds it is possible the control of the possible interferences amongst structures, systems and furniture allowing the maximum exploitation of spaces and the maximum structural simplicity.

 

The Company’s sectors entrusted with the preparation of structure, systems and furniture have therefore to work on the same wavelength to check as their work involves others’ work and vice versa. Then, everything must occur under only one control to assure that the design exactly conforms with the aim to be realized  according to quality, weights, realization time and costs.

 

The structural plans are supplemented with 2D drawings concerning the areas arrangement, as especially:

- Arrangement of rudders, holes and steering gears machinery

After the Committee’s analysis, a Work Report shall be drawn up by the  Head of TD, reporting the decisions and the descriptions of any  possible changes together with the reasons. A.s. document shall be delivered to every members of the Committee.

The Head of TD takes care to let any possible changes carry out until the drawing up of the final DRW, valid for the building.

In case the work has been entrusted to an external company, the Production DRW shall be submitted to at least two revisions, then it shall be considered feasible. In case further changes are necessary because of the external subcontracting company’s fault, the subcontractor will provide at its expenses to correct the DRW and will be submitted to possible penalties foreseen for late delivery. If the changes are requested by SERIM or by SERIM’s customer, the subcontractor shall have an extra payment, agreed in advance with SERIM.

When TD has got the final drawing up of DRW, TD shall submit it to SERIM Management and subsequently it shall send it in 5/five copies to the Classification Society (CS) for the certification.

If CS after its examination requires changes or particular details, the TD shall let them carry out to a full satisfaction of CS.

For the drawing up of the changes, if the DRW was prepared by SERIM, the TD will provide directly informing the interested members of the Committee.

If the document is entrusted to an external company, the company will be obliged to carry out all the details required by CS without any further payment and will have to pay the penalties provided for late delivery. If the changes are caused by SERIM or by SERIM’ buyers, the company will have the right to an extra payment agreed with SERIM in advance.
