2. Design process for GRP MCMVs. 2. This is similar to steel ship design, with a number of additional analysis tasks arising from the type of material and the requirement for shock resistance in the case of MCMVs. Throughout the design process attention must be paid to structural continuity, stiffener and tee-joint attachments and terminations, as well as the provision of support for machinery and equipment. 2 General arrangement - influence on structure Certain features of the ship's general arrangement can have a marked influence on the complexity, and hence the cost, of the structure.

Since the interaction of the laminate and core is so important in a sandwich design, there is, of course, a strong relationship between the characteristics of the core material and the laminate. The effect of too low core quality is especially hazardous in the bottom of a fast vessel which is subjected to high impact loads caused by slamming. Too low a core quality may cause shear fatigue due to the slamming loads after a relatively short time, but also cause severe secondary failures such as laminate peeling due to hydraulic pressure caused by collision with floating objects.

4 Plating design The basic bottom shell thickness is determined by the requirement for it to resist a combination of in-plane loading and lateral pressures. Initially bottom plating should be considered as long flat isotropic plates, fully fixed along stiffener centrelines for the general hydrostatic pressure case and orthotropic and pinned along the stiffener web to shell intersection for the case of local buckling between stiffeners. Where lateral pressure is found to dominate plating thickness a simple finite element model of a representative stiffener and panel combination and ply-by-ply laminate failure analysis may be undertaken to further refine the scantlings.
