Structural Analysis of SL-7 Containership under Combined Loading of Vertical, Lateral and Torsional Moments Using Finite Element Techniques,
SHIP STRUCTURE COMMITTEE WASHINGTON D C
Pagination or Media Count:
The entire SL-7 container vessel hull structure is analyzed by the DAISY finite element computer program. The ship, loaded with containers, placed in oblique quasi-static regular waves, is subject to combined vertical, lateral and torsional loads. Stress distributions particularly in the deck region are presented and investigated from the analysis using the reduced element substructure feature in the program. Fine mesh analyses are also presented at different locations of the ship. The computed stresses are discussed in connection with the placement of strain gages instrumentation on the SEA-LAND MCLEAN.
