Classification of Weight Groups for Surface Ships

1 Scope
1.1 This Defence Standard lays down a system for the classification of component weights of a ship for
the purpose of weight monitoring, recording and estimating, and for costing.

1.2 The system defined in this Defence Standard is to be applied to naval and other military surface ships
and craft, but not submarines.

1.3 DES SE Sea ShipDes is to be consulted in the event that difficulty is found in applying the weight
breakdown (particularly to multihulls or to unconventional craft e.g. SWATH or ACV).

1.4 This Defence Standard is designed to enable backward compatibility with weight breakdowns based
on previous versions of this standard. This means some weight groups will contain items that are not part of
modern warships, but may have been used for warships in the past, e.g. periscopes which have been used
between the Ops room and the Bridge on some ships.

1.5 Previous versions of this Defence Standard utilised Group 9 to identify the costs associated with
"Design and Construction Services". To separate this group from the other weight groups the breakdown
has been moved to Annex B.

1.6 It should be noted that the use of this Defence Standard for costing purposes is two fold: it is related to
the convenience of using its hierarchical classification system of ship components to account for the cost of a
ship, and it also enables ships to be “costed by weight group” using historical parametric rates.

2 Warning
The Ministry of Defence (MOD), like its contractors, is subject to both United Kingdom and European laws
regarding Health and Safety at Work. Many Defence Standards set out processes and procedures that could
be injurious to health if adequate precautions are not taken. Adherence to those processes and procedures
in no way absolves users from complying with legal requirements relating to Health and Safety at Work.

4 Definitions
Definitions referred to throughout this Defence Standard are listed below.

4.1
Activated Rudders
Rudders which have a means of propulsion integrated with them. This means they can apply a turning force
when a vessel has no speed through the water.

4.2
Agouti Special Air Service
A system used to pump air on to propeller blades to reduce cavitation noise.

4.3
Contingency Lighting
Lighting that will allow occupants of a ship to continue work when the primary lighting system fails.

4.4
Cycloidal Propulsors
A vertical axis propeller where the propeller blades are vertical and of aerofoil shape (e.g. Voith-Schneider).

4.5
Emergency Lighting
Lighting that will aid occupants of a ship to escape in an emergency.

4.6
Integral Item
Any item that is manufactured as part of another item and/or delivered for fitting as part of another item.

4.7
High Voltage
HV is defined as any working voltage that exceeds 1 kV ac (rms) or 1.5 kV dc, measured between any two
circuit conductors or between a circuit conductor and earth.

4.8
Local Items
Any item which is used solely in conjunction with an associated larger item, and is sited adjacent to that
larger item.

4.9
Low Voltage
LV is defined as voltages up to 1 kV ac or 1.5 kV dc;

4.10
Minor Bulkhead
Any bulkheads irrespective of material that are non-structural, i.e. used for dividing spaces to make
compartments.

4.11
Podded Propulsion
A propulsion system consisting of one or more propellers attached to an electrical motor in a pod directly
adjacent to the propellers. The pod may have fwd or aft facing propellers with either a single propeller or
contra-rotating propeller. The pod may be fixed or rotating.

that larger item.

5 Abbreviations
Abbreviations referred to throughout this Defence Standard are listed in Annex A.

6 Performance Specification
6.1 A record of weight groups is to be provided to the MOD in accordance with the classification system
laid out at clause 7 of this Standard. This classification system applies to naval and other military surface
ships.

6.2 The classification system defined by this standard is unclassified information. However, users should
be aware that recording a weight breakdown according to this system may create information that has a
security classification of Restricted or above, due to the fact that recording weights against groups indicates
which systems are fitted to a ship and/or the capabilities of those systems. If in doubt as to the appropriate
security level to apply, users should consult their technical security advisor.

7 Classification
a) This clause details the classification system of component weights for the purpose of weight
monitoring, recording and estimating, and for costing, for naval and other military surface ships and
craft.

b) The data recorded will be in a consistent format and will form part of the corporate knowledge base
used to aid future design.

c) Clause 8 should be referred to for additional design requirements/guidance regarding this section.

8 Design Requirements/Guidance

8.1 General Principle

8.1.1 General

a) The total ship weight is divided into eight groups. These groups are sub-divided into Sub-Groups and
Sub-Sub-Groups which are classified according to functional purpose. Groups are identified by single
digit numbers, Sub-Groups by two digit numbers and Sub-Sub-Groups by three digit numbers.

b) Previously an additional Group 9 titled ‘Design and Construction Services’ was used for cost
accounting of items which have no weight but involve cost, e.g. design work, testing, management and
support services. This group has been removed from the main part of this Defence Standard but is
included in Annex B for information only.

c) Additional weight group subdivision may be used at the discretion of a designer, yard or project office,
depending on the granularity required. This may take the form of a four or five digit classification
system that should continue from the three digit groups provided in this standard. An example of a
four digit approach could be to split group 112 “Superstructure Decks and Flats” up into individual
decks, e.g. 112.1 could represent the lower most super structure (non-strength) deck (01).

d) Users of this Defence Standard that are creating a new weight breakdown for a vessel are advised to
include in their listing a notes column to provide clarification on any items that could not be grouped as
per the classification system, or where assumptions are made in order to resolve ambiguity. Such
notes will greatly assist future users in interpreting a weight breakdown, and can be used by the
sponsor of this Defence Standard to identify areas for improvement. The notes should also include an
explanation of any four or five digit breakdown utilised, or of any suffixes applied to denote multihull or
block/module components (as per the notes below).

e) Where equipment items are multi-purpose their weight should be included in the group which best
describes their primary function, this simplification must be documented in detail in the notes
accompanying the weight breakdown so the approach taken is evident to subsequent users.

8.1.2 Integrated Full Electric Propulsion (IFEP) and Hybrid Electric Propulsion

a) Many RN and RFA ships are now deploying propulsion systems which are either partially (Hybrid) or
fully electric (IFEP). To ensure that the division of weights corresponding to electrically propelled
ships is consistently applied the following guidance is provided.

b) As per Def Stan 02-530 the following definitions apply:

1) LV is defined as voltages up to 1 kV ac or 1.5 kV dc;

2) HV is defined as any working voltage that exceeds 1 kV ac (rms) or 1.5 kV dc, measured
between any two circuit conductors or between a circuit conductor and earth.

c) In order to maintain backward compatibility within the previous standard, Groups 2 and 3 have not
been altered. The items whose weights are to be included in Group 2 (Propulsion) are those which
are directly related to propulsion. This includes the motor drive system for the propulsors, the
propulsors themselves, and any associated shafting. Group 2 should also include any generators
used exclusively for propulsion. The items which are included in Group 3 (Electrical) are generators,
distribution and their associated equipment when they provide power to both propulsors and to hotel
services. Figures 1 and 2 shows the division of weights between the two weight groups for full and
hybrid IFEP arrangements.

d) It should be noted that fuel and lubricating oil systems for an IFEP system will be found in Group 5
rather than Group 2. For normal propulsion, fuel oil service systems are in Sub-Group 28, whilst for
IFEP they are grouped in Sub-Group 51. Likewise, lubricating oil systems for normal propulsion are
grouped in Sub-Group 29, but for IFEP they are grouped in Sub-Group 58.

e) All cabling for IFEP should be included in Sub-Sub-Group 320.

24
DEF STAN 02-163 Issue 2

8.1.3 Minor Bulkheads

a) Minor Bulkheads are bulkheads creating sub-division within the ship, but not providing structural
support. The weights corresponding to non-steel minor bulkheads should be included in Group 6 as
part of the outfit. Steel minor bulkheads are to be incorporated in Group 1.

b) Minor bulkheads are divided between the;

1) hull - 122 or 620, and;

2) superstructure - 113 or 670.

c) These definitions assume the primary structure of the ship to be of steel (see note below regarding
composite construction).

8.1.4 Main Strength Deck

The main strength deck is defined as the uppermost hull deck that contributes to the global longitudinal
strength of the vessel (usually 1 Deck).

8.1.5 Integrated Masts

An integrated mast is one that forms part of the vessel's superstructure and provides internal space that is
used for compartments in common use. Integrated Masts should therefore be incorporated in Sub-Group
11.

8.1.6 Control Systems

There is a tendency for manufacturers to provide an overall weight for Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS)
equipment, inclusive of built in control systems. Every effort should be made to obtain the weights
corresponding to the piece of equipment under consideration and its control system separately, from the
manufacturer. Where this is not possible DES SE Sea ShipDes should be contacted for advice.

8.1.7 Seats and Supports

Seats and Supports are increasingly incorporated with equipment so that separate weights are not
immediately available. Again the manufacturer should be contacted to obtain the breakdown of weights.
Where the required information cannot be obtained DES SE Sea ShipDes should be contacted for further
guidance.

8.1.8 Main and Secondary Propulsion

To distinguish between main and secondary propulsion in Group 2 the addition of an ‘M’ or an ‘S’ as a suffix
to either the Sub-Group or Sub-Sub-Group number will provide additional clarity when required, e.g. 221-M
and 221-S for a ship with both main and secondary gas turbines.

8.1.9 Multihulls

a) The hull weight of a multihull should be classified using Sub-Group 10 in the same way it is used for a
monohull. Differentiation between the hull weights can be obtained by using Sub-Group 10 for each
hull individually, and applying a suffix to the weight group numbers. It is up to the Project Team to
determine the most suitable suffixes to use according to the type of multihull they are designing. 100-
P and 100-S could be used for the hull plating on a catamaran with Port and Starboard hulls.

b) The cross deck structure should be included in the weight breakdown as a deck except for the lowest
level of plating which would be classed as outer hull plating - 100.

25
DEF STAN 02-163 Issue 2

c) To ensure consistency of division the hulls should be divided at the first horizontal point after the
design waterline on the main hull or for symmetrical catamarans the hulls should be divided at the
centre line. This is shown by the vertical dotted lines in Figure 3.

Figure 3 - Division of Multihulls

8.1.10 Composite Structures

a) The design of composite structures is such that equipment can be integrated into the structure. These
systems should be included in the Sub-Group appropriate to the item and not as part of the composite
weight whether it be hull weight or superstructure. For example the SANDOWN Class minehunter has
degaussing coils built into the vessels hull lay-up. The hull weight should only correspond to the
weight of the composite without the degaussing coils, which are included in Sub-Sub-Group 440.

b) It should be noted that in general the wording of this Defence Standard is written assuming a ship
constructed primarily of steel. References throughout the definition text for the classification system
therefore use “steel” and “non-steel” to refer to structural items and outfit respectively. For projects
building a ship that is not steel (for example of composite or aluminium construction), it will be
necessary to read “steel” items as per the main construction material, and pay particular attention to
definitions relating to the differentiation between structural and outfit items.

8.1.11 Blocks or Modules

When ships are constructed in blocks or modules it is desirable to list which weights are associated with
which blocks. The block can be identified by an additional two digit code designating the block number,
which is added to the end of the standard three digit breakdown, e.g. 604-06 for a ships bell in module 6. If
this system is adopted then an explanation of the block numbering system should be given at the beginning
of the weight breakdown.

26
DEF STAN 02-163 Issue 2

8.1.12 Alternatives to Def Stan 02-163

a) There are numerous alternative weight breakdown structures in use throughout the world. These
include:

1) ESWBS (Expanded Ship Work Breakdown Structure)

2) SFI Code (Ship Research Institute of Norway, maintained by SpecTec)

b) The ESWBS has been use by the UK MOD in the past on joint projects with other nations and also on
some vessels built to commercial standards.

c) The importance of consistent capturing of weight data as corporate knowledge for use in future
defence projects must be recognised. In general this Defence Standard is to be preferred to
alternative methodologies, unless otherwise agreed with DES SE Sea ShipDes.

c) Assuming a ship primarily built of steel, Group 1 excludes non-steel minor (non-structural) bulkheads
which are recorded in 620 if they are within the hull or 670 if they are within the superstructure. For

Annex B
Group 9 - Design and Construction Services

B.1 Introduction
a) The system for the classification of weight groups previously included a Group 9 that was used to
identify costs that were associated with the design and construction of a new ship but which did not
relate to weight. Changes to the manner in which new ships are procured means that indirect costs
are no longer reported to MOD in this way. Group 9 has therefore been removed from the main part
of this Def Stan as it is not expected that future contracts would require design and construction costs
to be reported using this group.

b) The original text of Group 9 has been retained in this annex as it is a useful reference for anyone
considering the indirect costs that may be attracted by the procurement of a new ship. For further
information the reader should contact the MOD subject matter experts for cost estimating.
