Abstract : This report covers the installation of extreme stress gauges on eight SL-7 Vessels. Data collected over a seven-year period is presented. The purpose of this program was to obtain as much midship bending stress data from the SL-7's in the simplest and most direct manner possible. To meet this requirement, N.C.R.E. (Naval Construction Research Establishment) maximum-reading strain-gauge recorders and clock units were installed at approximately midships in the star-board longitudinal box grinder (tunnel) of all eight SL-7s.
