|The payload density of naval ships has recently been decreasing while the payload specific volume has been increasing. This trend is caused by the drive for increased performance of the ship by using electronic equipment, which has lower density, when compared with guns from the past. This change of focus has also been driven by associated demands for maintenance and operational spaces. This trend has limited the volume available on a naval ship, and has meant that the volume required for a naval ship’s electronic equipment has become larger than the minimum volume necessary to float the ship. However, the required volume for the electronic equipment was limited since the size and building cost of a naval ship increases as more volume is added. This means that space layout design has become a much more important consideration for efficient allocation of all compartments, including the electronic equipment, in the limited volume.
