Abstract:

The thin-walled box girder is a convenient mathematical and physical model of the ship envelope structure. This paper gives a theory of response of such a girder to bending loading, and results of a series of tests on a large model. The loading produced highly unconventional strain patterns, and correspondence between theory and experiment is excellent. Author
