Ship Design and Selection of Access Equipment — Bulk Cargo



This chapter discusses the considerations to be taken into account in the design of ships for bulk cargoes, their cargo spaces and the selection of their access equipment. The main types of bulk carrier are described, with the requirements for hatch sizes and types. A check list for choosing possible hatch covers summarizes the main considerations. A method of economic evaluation that includes more than first cost is described.
