Abstract : The dynamic behavior of a flat plate stiffened by tee stiffeners was studied analytically and experimentally to determine the applicability of previously developed analytical programs to this type of stiffener. Analytical and experimental studies were also made to determine the effects of intercostal tee stiffeners and two types of foundations when mounted on the tee stiffened plate. These foundations and the intercostal stiffeners were also evaluated in the barge DEZIBEL to determine their acoustic effectiveness in water. (Author)
