Abstract

The design of new ships for container and/or Ro-Ro transport on short or medium distances as, for example, on Mediterranean routes is proposed and analysed. The ship hull design is a trimaran SWAH hull (Small Waterplane Area Hull), which was defined and tested at DINMA towing tank to determine the most appropriate design solution. In particular the interference factors between the main hull and the outriggers are examined and analysed. The resistance components are calculated and compared for the different dispositions of the hull components. Then the main general characteristics for a container ship will be presented and discussed by setting in evidence the faults and the qualities for this solution.
