Abstract:

The Ship Research Committee SRC of the National Research Council provides technical services covering program recommendations, proposal evaluations, and project advice to the interagency Ship Structure Committee SSC, composed of representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard, The Naval Sea Systems Command, The Military Sealift Command, The Maritime Administration, the American Bureau of Shipping, and the U.S. Geology Survey. This arrangement requires continuing interaction among the SRC, the SSC, the contracting agency, and the project investigators to assure an effective program to improve marine structures through an extension of knowledge of materials, fabrication methods, static and dynamic loading and response, and methods of analysis and design. This report contains the Ship Research Committees recommended research program for five years, FY 1980-1984, with 13 specific prospectuses for FY 1981. Also included is a brief review of 24 active and 6 recently completed projects. Author
