Abstract:

Strains and deflections of several portable Evans dunnage members were measured on the USS DIAMOND HEAD AE19. Simultaneous recordings of strain and deflection of the portable members and angles of roll and pitch of the vessel were made when the ship was transferring ammunition at sea or during selected sea conditions. The seas encountered were not sufficiently severe to cause significant loads on the dunnage members. Author
