Finnish Maritime Administration, Sept 2003 and the rules for classification of ships
given by Lloyd’s Registrar of Shipping July 2001. Fig. 8.1 is a typical midship section
of a double skin ice class tanker.

8.1.2 Class Notation

Vessel is designed to be classed as ‘+100 A1(ice) Double Hull Oil Tanker ESP.’
ESP means Enhanced Survey Program. This is for Ice navigating tanker having integral
cargo tanks for carriage of oil having flash point > 60o C. Where the length of the ship is
greater than 190m, the scantlings of the primary supporting structure are to be assessed
by direct calculation and the Ship Right notations Structural Design Assessment (SDA),
Fatigue Design Assessment (FDA) and Construction Monitory (CM) are mandatory.

8.1.3 Cargo Tank Boundary Requirements

Minimum double side width (ds)
ds = 0.5 + (dwt/20,000) or ds = 2.0 m
Whichever is lesser But ds should not be less than 1 m.
ds = 0.5 + (150000/20,000) = 8.0 m
Double side width is taken as 2.8 m to get the required ballast volume.
∴ ds = 3.0 m

Minimum double bottom depth (dB)

dB = B/15 or dB = 2.0 m
Whichever is lesser
dB = 48.76/15 = 3.25 m
A double bottom height of 3.0 m is provided to get the required ballast volume.
∴ dB = 3.0 m
length of cargo tanks and tank boundaries refer General Arrangement Plan.

8.1.4 Type Of Framing System [LRS Part 4, Chapter 9, Section 1.3.10, 1.3.11]

The bottom shell, inner bottom and deck are longitudinally framed (for L >
75m). The side shell, inner hull bulkheads and long bulkheads are also longitudinally
framed (L > 150m). When the side shell in long framed, the inner hull bulkhead is also
to be framed longitudinally. Primary members are defined as girders, floors, transverses
and other supporting members.

The hull midship section modulus about the transverse neutral axis, at the
deck or keel is to be not less than
Z min = f1KL C1L2B (CB + 0.7) x 10-6 m3
f1 = ship’s service factor, specially considered depending upon
the service restriction and in any event should not be less than
0.5 For unrestricted sea going service f1 = 1.0
∴f1 taken as 1 and KL = 0.78 (Grade DH32/EH32)
C1 = 10.75 – [(300-L)/100] 1.5 for 90<L<300m
= 10.537
CB = Block Coefficient = 0.84
∴ Zmin = 43.09 m3

8.6 Inner Hull, Inner Bottom and Longitudinal Bulkheads

(LRS Part 4, Chapter 9, Section 6)

The inner hull, inner bottom and longitudinal bulkheads are longitudinally
framed.
The symbols used in this section are defined as follows:
b1 = the greatest distance in meters, from the centre of the plate panel
or midpoint of the stiffener span, to the corners at top of the tank
on either side.
c1 = 60 / (225 – 165FD) at deck
= 1.0 at D/2
= 75/(225 – 150FB), at base line of ship
c2 = 165/(345 – 180FB) at deck
= 1.0 at D/2
= 165/(345 – 180FD) at baseline of ship
h = load height, in meters measured vertically as follows:

Department of Ship technology, CUSAT, B.Tech (NA&SB, Batch - XXVII

(a) for bulkhead plating the distance from a point one third of the height of the plate
panel above its lower edge to the highest point of the tank, excluding hatchway
(b) for bulkhead stiffeners or corrugations, the distance from the midpoint of span
of the stiffener or corrugation to the highest point of the tank, excluding
hatchway
h1 = (h + D1/8), but not less than 0.72 (h + Rb1)
h2 = (h + D1/8), in meters, but in no case be taken less than L1/56 m or
(0.01L1 + 0.7) m, whichever is greater
h3 = distance of longitudinal below deck at side, in meters, but is not to
be less than 0
h4 = h + Rb1
h5 = h2 but is not to be less than 0.55h4
t0 = 0.005s √kh1
t1 = t0(0.84 + 0.16(tm/t0)2)
tm = minimum value of t0 within 0.4D each side of mid depth of

The inner hull and bulkhead plating is divided into various strakes for the
determination of center line bulkhead longitudinals and inner hull longitudinals.

8.6.3 Inner Bottom Plating and Longitudinals

The inner bottom is to be longitudinally framed and the inner bottom plating
thickness is to be
t = t0 / √ 2-FB

t0 = 0.005s√ kh1
s = spacing of inner bottom longitudinal = 700mm
k = 0.78
h = distance in m, from the plate in consideration to the highest
point of the tank, excluding hatchway = 20.76 m
R = 0.354 (refer previous sections)
b1 = B/2 = 24.35 m
h1 = 0.72 (h+Rb1)

t0 = 14.21 mm

203
Department of Ship technology, CUSAT, B.Tech (NA&SB, Batch - XXVII

t = 12.32 mm
Selected = 14 mm

The modulus of longitudinals is not to be less than greater of the following:

(a) Z = 0.056kh2sl2eF1 cm3
h = 19.38 m
D1 = 16 m
h2 = h + D1 / 8 = 22.76 m
F1 = 0.078
∴Z = 985.2 cm3
(b) Z = 0.0051kh4sl2eF2 cm3
h4 = h + Rb1 = 27.709m
F2 = 0.316
∴Z = 440.67 cm3

Selected Z = 985.2 cm3.

Height of NA =10.237

I ref =1415.56
I na =602.54

Z deck =44.44
Z keel =58.85
Z Req 43.31 m3

Here ZDECK and ZKEEL are getting more than the minimum section modulus required. So
the design is satisfactory
