    In the rule 2012, I note that the design area factor (Fd) is not linked with the ratio Ad/Ar, but on the stiffener space for the craft < 24 m.

    Suppose that on a boat, the longitudinal space is 0.25 m, the transversal frame space is 1 m and transverse frame unsupported lenght is 3 m, is it correct to said that :
    Fd for plating is 0.85
    Fd for longitudinal is 0.5
    Fd for transversal frame is 0.4

    It seems to me that this new rule is a simplificaton of the rule used for ABS ORY.

    Thank you in advance

    Best Regards
