Abstract : The paper presents a parametric formulation concerning the volumes and weights of ships of the displacement type. The formulation is based on the assumption that the volumes and weights could be related to certain relevant design parameters in simple relationships. The expressions thus derived lend themselves conveniently to analytical or graphical solutions that can be readily applied. Algebraic equations for analyzing the effects of changes in any one parameter or group of parameters are also developed. A table of influence coefficients is presented. Also shown are the results of some sample calculations. (Author)
