Abstract : A method is described by which the flexural modes of hull vibration can be calculated--while the ship is still in the design stage--by digital computation. Although the method shows promise of applicability to both horizontal and vertical flexural modes, it is presently recommended for preparation of data on vertical modes only. (Author)
