The first container fleet in Japan is coming into view as a part of the containerization plan for this country. This paper gives the result of a study on the torsional strength and rigidity which is the most serious problem in the structural design of a container ship. First, the twisting moment acting on the hull was obtained statically and the values of moment were compared with those by De Wildes or Vedelers theory. Second, distortion of hatch openings and nominal bending and shear stress acting on the ends of the cross deck in the actual ship were studied and the effect of reinforcement at the cross deck, was investigated.
