Abstract [en]

This study treats the design of secondary structures for wheel-loaded decks. It concludes that significant savings in structural weight, overall cost and environmental impact can be obtained by an improved design. The rules of three classification societies are examined and their principle differences are discussed. Weight and cost optimal solutions of rule-based design are identified for a deck of a typical short-sea RoRo-vessel. The rule-optimal designs are assessed and further improved on the basis of FEcalculations and the economic and environmental benefits associated with the best solutions are approximated.
