Abstract: Achieve an accurate ship design in a short time is only feasible by using powerful ship design tools. But the features of common design tools, concerning the structural design, are not satisfying today. This paper presents a new structural design method for RoRo vessels, which is integrated in a ship design tool. The method is able to dimension and optimize RoRo-deck structures by using simple beam grillage calculations. Thereby structural design aspects can be treated more effectively during the RoRo ship design process.
