    Could somebody tell me where I can find planes or any other kind of information about a 8000 TEU's Containership.
    I'm designing one in order to finish my degree of Naval Enginering.
    I would be very graetfur for your help.

    The forum is not a place to re-post homework you don't want to do.

    We are happy to provide suggestions if you have specific questions (eg. if you wanted to know about visibility from such a ship's bridge and how the stacks of containers affect situational awareness). But if you're finishing up your NA degree, you should already have most of the information you need for this design project memorized (how to create an SOR, how to work through the design spiral) and you should have collected enough textbooks to look up the rest of what you need (how to calculate stability, etc.).

    Sorry, but I think that I haven't explain well my problem.
    I don't want nobody to make my work. I have lots of textbooks, I have lots of general information, I know how to calculate stability, etc.
    But the real problem is that i'm not able to find a general disposition plan of a 8000 TEU's container ship, that i would like to get in order to have a reference to improve my work. I have lots of planes of small container ships but I don't need small ones.
    I don't need you to give me a plan, but I would be gratful if somebody tell me where I can look for.

    RHP, be sure that it'll be BIG, very very BIG

    Thanks for your time.

    I think you might be missing the point, and the fun, of the whole design exercise. The idea here is not to copy an existing design, but to make your own, better, one. FWIW, during my senior year at UofM, we had two design projects, a requirements driven 2500 TEU feeder ship and an independent one (I chose to do a SWATH). For the feeder ship, there were all sorts of differences, I choose to use a house forward MSD design basis and ended up with about 2800 TEU in the requirement footprint with less draft. It did not look like any of the other students design.

    To see what'd out there in terms of general arrangements, look in Ship Design & Construction by SNAME for some thoughts, pick a configuration you like then just size it using the skillset you have learned. This is the FUN part of Naval Architecture.
