The size and principal
characteristics of a new ship are determined primarily
by its mission or intended service. In addition to
basic functional considerations, there are requirements
such as stability, low resistance, high propulsive efficiency,
and navigational limitations on draft or beam, all
of which influence the choice of dimensions and form.
Within these and other basic constraints, the ship’s structure
must be designed to sustain all of the loads expected
to arise in its seagoing environment.
Roman theatres were complex buildings, closer in design to
modern theatres than Greek ones. The seating was arranged in a
semicircle around the orchestra as in the Greek theatre, but the
stage and scene building were joined to the auditorium and rose
to the same height, creating a sense of enclosure more like that
of a modern theatre. This sense of enclosure was made more
emphatic by the fact that some smaller theatres or odea were
roofed and larger ones often had awnings (vela) overhead to
shade the audience.
