A survey of the major shipbuilding programs during the period 1918 to 1955 in building concrete ships is given. Hull weights and shapes, costs and constructional techniques are examined critically. The need for simple, economical hull structures favorable to the constructional versatility of concrete is emphasized so that the material may best be utilized as a structural medium in its own right and not as a mere substitute material for steel.
