Dr Mukti received his PhD in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from University College London-UK and his MEng degree from Texas A&M University-USA, where he focused on deep-water technology, subsea riser and pipeline design and the subsea project implementation. He also completed a Shipbuilding Operations and Technology course in the 2N Professional Programme at Massachusetts Institute of Technology-USA. His career in multinational companies covers various industries and levels of responsibility, ranging from a project leader of a High-Speed Craft (HSC) project to a key person for the detailed design of laydown area modules of the INPEX-Ichthys Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Platform project. He is the recipient of the 2022 RINA WHC medal prize.
Research Summary
Various methods have been developed for automated and semi-automated architecture generation in Computer Aided Premilinary Ship Design (CAPSD) processes. Question remains how to differentiate designs and how to deal with large amount of options (many unrealistic) these generate. Methods have been developed to apply mathematical approaches to analysing architectures in abstract planes, e.g. network theory. These are mainly intended as an additional discriminator/analysis for automated approaches.

The UCL Design Building Block approach (DBBA) to design is instead more a designer-centric approach to modelling and information management in an architecturally centred CAPSD approach. This approach has inherited social aspects of the wider research, design & procurement community in which they have been developed and applied. UCL network-based analysis sought to apply these abstractions as an aid to designer understanding. PSD has been identified as an example of sketching in ship design, with PSD representations being fluid/forgiving/functional, but limited by current PSD tools (including implementations of the DBBA).

Dr Mukti is examining the applications of these abstractions in a designer-centred sketching approach to CAPSD. The research objective is to develop and demonstrate a novel approach and software toolset that allows, “in-stride” application of developing abstraction, modelling and analysis approaches to early stage ship designs, developed in the typical timescale of UCL concept design projects, and providing an effective reply to the requirements for a sketching tool laid out by Pawling and Andrews (2011). It will also build on network based approaches that been applied to PSD for novel ship and submarine concepts including “motherships” for UXVs (Kouriampalis 2019) and submarine distributed systems (Mukti 2022).
