ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION OF FULL-SCALE DATA ON MIDSHIP BENDING STRESSES OF DRY CARGO SHIPS

Results of the analysis of stress data from full-scale measurements on two C-4 type cargo vessels are presented in the form of histograms and cumulative distributions, which together with previously analyzed full-scale data cover a total of five years of normal ship operation in the North Atlantic. Two rational techniques are given for the extrapolation of full-scale data to longer periods of time, in order to predict extreme bending stresses ( or bending moments ) in service. Recommendations are made for more data collection from different ships on different routes, for investigation of other statistical techniques, and for development of methods for model predictions of long-term trends.
