HS-07 Vibrations

All of the ship dynamic problems of primary interest to naval architects, excluding maneuvering, involve some form of vibration.
One of the objectives in the design of modern ships is the avoidance of objectionable elastic vibration of the hull structure in response to external or internal dynamic forces. Such vibration can cause discomfort to passengers and interfere with the performance of crew duties, and in extreme cases damage structure, or adversely affect the operation of mechanical and electrical equipment onboard.
HS-7 panel aims to develop guidance with the objective of informing industry of the latest techniques and solutions for analyzing and resolving vibration problems in modern shipbuilding.
