Abstract : This report is one in a series of reports conducted as part of a two year Joint Industry Research Project "Structural Maintenance for New and Existing Ships" initiated in June 1990 by the Department of Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering of the University of California at Berkeley to both develop practical tools and procedures for the analysis of proposed ship structural repairs and to prepare guidelines for the cost effective design and construction of lower-maintenance ship structures. This project was organized into six studies. This report is based on the results of' Study 4 whose objective was to develop and verify engineering guidelines for the evaluation of fatigue and corrosion repairs to critical structural components of existing ships. This report documents a Repair Management System (RMS) to aid in the diagnosis of ship structural failures and the evaluation of repair alternatives.
