Abstract:

The conversion of USNS MISSION CAPISTRANO AG 162, formerly AO 112, to an ARTEMIS support ship included cutting a hole vertically through the ship and reinforcing the remaining structure in the vicinity of the hole. Static loads which caused either longitudinal bending or torsional moments were applied to the hull. These loads produced strains at the corners of the hole that were twice as high as the main deck strains at Frame 57 outboard of the opening. However, the maximum strain at the corner of the hole was no more than 25 percent greater than the strains observed at a section similar to this section prior to modification. Author
