Today, marine transportation has a significant role in global trade. The characteristics of the containerized shipping have made the number of container ships grow every day and made significant improvements in the construction and operation of these ships.
In this research, the main dimensions of a container ship are optimized according to different objectives. This optimization aims to reduce both hydrodynamic resistance and the steel weight of the ship. Initially, the information needed for optimization is specified, and the problem's constraints are determined. Then, the optimization is done using the optimization tool of the genetic algorithm toolbox in Matlab software. Also, a software code is developed, and the optimization case is done using this code. The results show that the genetic algorithm can be used as a practical tool for optimizing the dimensions of the ships.
