Basic Design

Basic Design is a typical work area in maritime engineering. It is comparable to the German Entwurfsplanung. It contains the general layout. All structural members are defined with their cross section and thickness. The modelling at this level gives confidence in terms of ultimate, fatigue, service and accidental limit state as well as in the dynamic behaviour. The definition and assessment of joining.

The initial approach on corrosion protection has been developed already at this stage.
