Abstract : The Committee on Marine structures (CMS) of the Marine Board of the National Research Council provides technical services covering planning, review, and advisory relationships to the interagency Ship Structure Committe (SSC), composed of representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard, the Naval Sea Systems Command, the Maritime Administration, the American Bureau of Shipping, the Military Sealift Command, and the Minerals Management Service. This arrangement requires continuing interaction between the CMS and the SSC to assure an effective program to extend knowledge of materials, loading, response, design, fabrication, and inspection as related to marine structures. This report contains the CMS' recommended research program for five years, fiscal years 1984-1988; 12 project descriptions for fiscal year 1985; and a brief review of 18 active and six recently completed projects.
