Prof. Brown presents a rigorous approach to the integrated conceptual design of distributed mechanical, electrical and fluid marine engineering systems during the conceptual design of complex warships. The interdependence and complexity of ship systems is growing at such a rate that a total system-of-systems design approach is now essential. At each stage of design, the total ship system must be resolved at a level of detail sufficient to make decisions necessary to move to later design stages without costly backtracking. The modeling uses a network representation and linear programming to optimize the architecture and sizing of these systems considering normal operating, casualty and damage situations. The approach would be equally applicable to the integrated conceptual design and optimization of other complex offshore projects and vessels. This development was largely the result of a Navy sponsored cooperative program at Virginia Tech, the University of Michigan, Delft Technical University of Technology (DUT) and University College London (UCL) with collaboration from MIT and the Naval Surface Warfare Center. This new chapter would be an excellent starting point for teaching the overall design of marine engineering installations in an advanced undergraduate or graduate marine design course.
