Preliminary design includes determination of the main hull characteristics.
Main hull characteristics include dimensions, form coefficients, lightship weights, basic hydrostatics and rough-order-of-magnitude cost estimate.
Deliverables includes following drawings:
- General Arrangements
- Preliminary Body Plan
- Propulsion Power type and location
- Lightship Weight Estimate by Standard Work Breakdown Standard (SWBS) categories
- ROM Ship cost estimate by SWBS
