Deformation is unavoidable in some stages of the ship production process. Deformation occurs when the blocks are lifted in an erroneous eye pad position. The aim of this study was to determine behaviour of the ship structures during assembly and lifting process. A typical tanker was used as the basic structural shape. The bottom structures was modeled to be analyzed. In this study, deformations and stresses on the bottom structures during the block lifting are investigated using the finite element method. The deformations and stresses are evaluated and critical condition detected. The preferable block lifting method with the minimum distortion on the bottom structures of tanker is proposed.
