Abstract:

The distribution of a vertical load on a bulkhead stiffener into the bulkhead plating was studied photoelastically. Both tapered and uniform stiffeners were investigated. The loads on the stiffener were resisted by two types of reaction, namely, by shear at the side shell and by compression at the bottom. It is concluded that, for practical purposes, the entire load is absorbed into the plating within one deck height for both uniform and tapered stiffeners and for both types of support. Author
