Ships are one of the common marine transportation vehicles in daily life, and they play an important role in the transportation of goods and trade in various places. We see that the size of ships is different, but in fact, no matter whether the ship is large or small, its main structure is similar. Next, the editor will introduce the structure of the ship.

The hull is the hull of the ship, which is formed by combining multiple steel plates with rivets or electric welding, and includes three parts: the keel wing plate, the curved outer plate and the upper outer plate.

(2) Frame

Ship frame refers to the general term for various materials used to support the hull, divided into two parts: longitudinal and transverse. Longitudinal materials include keels, bottom bones and side bones; transverse materials include ribs, ship beams and bulkheads.

The deck is a steel plate laid on the beams of the ship, which separates the hull into upper, middle and lower layers. The number of decks of a large ship can be as many as six or seven, and its function is to strengthen the hull structure and facilitate layered stowage and loading.
