Abstract:

Entirely rational elastic or plastic design procedures for surface ship structures have not been achieved. During the past 15 years, considerable advances and development both in the understanding of the mechanics of ship structures and in the application of digital computers to ship problems have been made. This is a report on research in progress to obtain information on loadings at sea, with regard to both extreme and repeated cyclic loading.
