Since a ship's hull consists of various curved plates, different fabrication methods are applied for efficient fabrication works of curved hull plates. Currently, the classification methods largely rely on division resolution and thus lead to insufficient reliability. This article proposes four standard shapes for fabrication by calculating boundary curvature of each curved plate so that same curvature areas could be acquired. Some examples are carried out for the classification of curved hull plates.
