These proceedings contain the papers presented at the 7th International Symposium on Practical Design of Ships and Mobile Units. The symposium was held at the Congress Centre in The Hague, The Netherlands on 20-25 September, 1998.The overall aim of PRADS conferences is to advance the design of ships and mobile marine structures through the exchange of knowledge and the promotion of discussions on relevant topics in the fields of naval architecture and marine and offshore engineering. Greater international co-operation of this kind can help improve design and production methods and so increase the efficiency, economy and safety of ships and mobile units. The main themes of this symposium are design synthesis, production, ship hydromechanics, ship structures and materials and offshore engineering. Some topics which attracted many papers were design loads, design for ultimate strength, impact of safety and environment, grounding and collision, resistance and flow, seakeeping, fatigue considerations and propulsor and propulsion systems.93-0432, Rev. 6, September 1996. 7.
