[en] Limiting CO2 emissions is a great challenge being faced by society today. Society, through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and actors like the EU, is applying pressure on all industries, including the shipping industry, to reduce CO2 emissions. This paper presents a way to decrease the GHG emissions by ship scantling optimisation, i.e. decreasing steel weight and keeping the production cost at an acceptable level. The authors first review the links between “Design” and “Optimization” and secondly define the place of “Ship Structure Optimization” within the general framework of a “Ship Optimization”. Then, the LBR-5 ship structure optimisation software is presented. It is based on a convex lin-earization coupled with a dual approach and is based on a rational assessment of the ship structures behaviour. Few applications of structures optimization are then presented.
