Welcome to the Modern Naval Vessel Design Evaluation Tool website. 

This is a site that I have been putting together for many years as a reference for use by students and those interested in the design of ship.  Currently the primary focus of this website is Post WWII surface warships and Aircraft Carrying type ships.  In the future I hope to expand to include other additional types of vessels.

Often during early stage ship design, a naval architect may make use of graphs, curves, charts, equations and/or algorithims to help  estimate the characteristics of a proposed design.  There are many well regarding naval architectural refefence books, articles, papers, and theses available which summarize many of these estimation techniques.  However, often there can be multiple different potential equations or algortithms available for estimating certain aspects of a design and it is not always  easy to assess  which method may be most applicable to a specific type of vessel.

As such, I have been using this website as a location where I can store the technical data that I have collected on numerous post WWII warship designs, and compare that data to different estimating techniques to help provide guidance on which equations/algorithms, etc may be most applicable to these type vessels.

Based on this I have been working to develop some spreadsheets that combine much of this information to allow a user to;
I am currently in the process of re-organizing this website.  The final layout is still under development but one section will specifically address conventional displacement monohull type combatant warships such as corvettes, frigates, destroyers and cruisers, and another section will address large monohull vessels, whose primary mission is to operate helicopters, tilt rotor aircraft, or fixed wing aircraft.   Eventually, as noted above I hope to also explore developing a similar sub-site to address submarines.

Disclaimer: I've collected all the data discussed on these pages from open/public domain sources over a 30+ year period.  Some of the discussion contained on these pages are my best interpretation of this data and I hope what I have posted is correct, but I can't guarantee its accuracy, so please proceed with caution with everything you might see on these pages.

Notes: This website has been developed with a number of low cost or free programs including Hot Metal Pro, KompoZer and Da Button Factory.com
