Abstract : A program is identified for strength testing of hull girder models representative of longitudinally framed ship construction. The purpose of the tests is to generate data (for correlation with theory where available) to provide the basis for engineering design of the primary structure of the hull girder. The major loads are longitudinal compression induced by primary hull bending, normal pressure from the seam and athwartship compression induced by the horizontal pressure on the sidewalls. (Author)
