Authors: D.A. Aleksashin, M.S. Boyko, M.A. Kuteynikov

Abstract

The paper provides the task formulation and the task solution as applicable to ship structure design according to IACS Harmonized CSR. Complex rules structure and multiple criteria provided require the application of new and improved optimization algorithms. The article provides the solution of the task by using the particle swarm optimization algorithm. The formulations are provided for goal function as applicable to oil tanker web frame structure, together with the task's variables and limitation. MATLAB application is developed to solve the task. The article provides the general description of the MATLAB application, and the composition of separate modules. The results obtained are compared with those of the prototype vessel.

Keywords: IACS Common Structural Rules, particle swarm optimization algorithm, ship structures design, oil tankers, transverse web frames.
