Abstract

This paper presents the structural response of a fast and relatively small, composite materials catamaran to slamming loads. Finite element method is used to provide valuable information in order to optimise the design of the catamaran. The analysis is carried out using ANSYS 6.0 finite element software. The response of the structure to quasi-static slamming loads according to Det Norske Veritas High Speed and Light Craft crest landing and hollow landing rules [DNV, 1999] has been implemented and studied. An optimisation study for the structural response is carried out by changing the ply orientation in the vessel and suitable recommendations are made. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
