Tabulated stress data from unattended instrumentation systems are presented for two ships covering a total of 6,528 hours of being at sea. One ship has her machinery amidship, while the other has hers aft. The data indicate that the trend of maximum peak-to-peak stress vs. sea state for the two ships is similar. The maximum peak-to-peak stress recorded in this data is approximately 6900 psi for a sea state 11. Author
