Calculate steel weight of a vessel.

Calculate steel weight of a vessel.

Could anyone please share any method, by rule of thumb, to calculate the steelweight of any ship in general, and a 50m coastguard vessel in particular, for the use in the early project phase. I.e. LxBxHx "C" = Weight or preferably somethin more exact?



RE: Calculate steel weight of a vessel.

Don't think it works quite that way.

However, you know that it must weigh less than it's displaced volume of water.


RE: Calculate steel weight of a vessel.

Yes it does. Its a statistical method to get an approximate weight for estamating price in the early phase of a project when I only have intended main main dimensions of the vessel. Each type of vessel (or each yard) have different methods to estimate weight, and I am intrested in a publication, standard, or textbook dealing wih these issues.
