Abstract : The report is a continuation of an earlier report, giving results of the analysis of all available stress data from full-scale measurements on the following dry cargo ships: S.S. WOLVERINE STATE, S.S. HOOSIER STATE, S.S. MORMACSCAN, and S.S. CALIFORNIA BEAR. The results for the first two, which are sister ships of the C4-S-B5 type cover a total of about 10 ship-years in the North Atlantic, and results are felt to be consistent and reliable. Results for the MORMACSCAN, covering brief periods in the runs from New York to Europe and New York to South America, appear to provide inadequate statistical samples. CALIFORNIA BEAR results for the North Pacific appear to be reasonable for that service. (Author)
