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. Geological 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 Committee's recommended research program for five years, FY 1982-1986, with 13 specific prospectuses for FY 1983. Also included is a brief review of 21 active and 9 recently completed projects. (Author)
