Abstract : The ordinary wave-induced midship vertical bending stress and the pitching, rolling, and heaving motions of a Victory cargo ship are presented. Short-term, long-term, and maximum-value statistical analyses are described. Considerable detail is given in regard to the maximum-value analysis. The results of the three analyses are discussed, and predictions of anticipated stress, bending moment, and motion magnitudes are given for this type of ship in the North Atlantic. (Author)
