 Abstract
After 2017 years, BWMS units must be installed in the existing ship as well as the new ship by the ballast water management convention. Software tools that can help automatically searching for BWMS installation space to avoid pipes and equipment in the engine room of the existing ship will be very useful in the BWMS layout design. In this study, voxel representation of scanned data is generated first to search space efficiently. Simplified voxel models of each unit are prepared to be located in the engine room space as well. Distance between connected models is calculated through the arrangement direction and position of each model. Sums of distance between connected models are compared for the optimal configuration. It is assumed that the sum of distance between connected models depicts the pipe usage. The proposed method can save the time needed for BWMS installation design and allows optimal configuration of BWMS units.
