    I am trying to do to Scantling calculations for a 7m high speed catamaran as per the DNV classification society.
    Primary aim is to find thickness, spacing of various structural member, Have an autocad design ready.
    I went through the classification society rules and only thing i could get out of it were the loads that are actually acting on the catamaran. The material being used for the catamaran are fiber composites.
    I could also find out the maximum loads the composite can bear at different places in the ship.
    The only problem is I am not able to co-relate both of them as the equations for maximum load is an equation of any variable which are unknown.

    So can someone guide on ow to go about this?
