Superstructure

A superstructure is an upward extension of an existing structure above a baseline. This term is applied to various kinds of physical structures such as buildings, bridges, or ships having the degree of freedom zero; as stated above, superstructure consists of the parts of the ship or a boat, including sailboats, fishing boats, passenger ships, submarines, that project above her main deck. This does not include its masts or any armament turrets. Note that in modern times, turrets do not always carry naval artillery, but they can carry missile launchers and/or antisubmarine warfare weapons; the size of a watercraft's superstructure can have many implications in the performance of ships and boats, since these structures can alter their structural rigidity, their displacements, and/or stability. These can be detrimental to any vessel's performance if they are taken into consideration incorrectly; the height and the weight of superstructure on board a ship or a boat affects the amount of freeboard that such a vessel requires along its sides, down to her waterline.

In broad terms, the more and heavier superstructure that a ship possesses, the less the freeboard, needed. On a bridge, the portion of the structure, the span and directly receives the live load is referred to as the superstructure. In contrast, the abutment and other support structures are called the substructure. In order to improve the response during earthquakes of buildings and bridges, the superstructure might be separated from its foundation by various civil engineering mechanisms or machinery. All together, these implement the system of earthquake protection called base isolation
