Optimization of Space Under Main Deck on Landing Craft Utility (LCU) Ships to Increase Loading Capacity
1 Diponegoro University, Semarang, Java, Indonesia
ABSTRACT: With this optimization, the cargo will increase and the ship's revenue will also be more. The LCU ship that we know so far is a ship whose cargo is always above the main and the space under the main is unused Void Space. The purpose of this study is to determine the optimization value of the use of space under the main deck of the Landing Craft Utility (LCU) ships. method used in this study is a comparison with several previous ship approaches to produce evaluation results from the addition of loading space under the main deck and calculation of stability using computational software approximation. LCU design of under main deck space with a maximum vehicle value can accept a vertical moment of 2750 mm. With a structural strength of 13150 tons. A series of numerical experiments show that the proposed method can effectively produce a satisfactory LCU ship design optimization plan for ship owners.
