Designing propulsion systems for ships is a complex matter. 

We offer you the opportunity to make yourself familiar with some of the basic design principles of propulsion systems. We have compiled a paper which gives an introduction to the most elementary terms used in ship propulsion design. 

Read about ship types, ship’s dimensions and hull forms and learn more about parameters such as hull resistance, propeller conditions and the diesel engine’s load diagram.
