Abstract : The overall objective of this paper is to derive a set of recommendations capable of helping the designer meet the requirements of foundation stiffness and which are necessary for the good performance of machinery components. The design recommendations to be derived essentially concern the structural arrangement of machinery spaces and support systems. Also included a group of suggested methods and techniques of structural analysis and design which can assist the designer in implementing these recommendations. As a result, it is hoped that the gap between hull flexibility requirements and machinery operational requirements for a ship can be reduced, so that overall design process and the ship's performance can be improved.
