Abstract
The SHOP5 System is a computer-aided ship design tool for monohull frigate and destroyer Concept Exploration. Its primary application is initializing the new-ship design process by determining the ship size, hull form and major systems best suited for the design requirements. Other uses include evaluating new technologies and performing specific parametric studies. The SHOP5 System incorporates three FORTRAN programs in a closed-loop system: program FIVPRE for defining and modifying ship descriptions and design requirements; program SHOP5 for computing ship characteristics; and program FIVPOS for examining design candidates using computer graphics. Design calculations include seakeeping in head seas, resistance, powering and range in calm water and in waves, propulsion and electrical system modeling, distribution of weight and volume components, preliminary intact and damaged stability analysis platform acquisition cost.
