Pagination or Media Count:
The motions and longitudinal hull bending moments which ships of the ESSEX Class may be expected to experience over a wide range of operating conditions are presented in statistical form. The data are based on extensive measurements made on USS VALLEY FORGE CVS45 and USS ESSEX CVA9. From the test results, data are derived for this type of ship for use in design and operating problems involving bending moments and ship motions. Formulas are given for use in estimating probable extreme values of moments and motions.
