COMBINED CARGO SHIPS: DESIGN OF SHIPS FOR DRY CARGO COMBINATIONS
This paper describes the design features of open bulk carriers and semi-container ships which have a bearing on the construction of combination dry-cargo ships. Special strength problems relating to particular areas of such ships are discussed; these are ballast spaces, ore spaces and the transverse bulkhead, and torsion and combined stresses in the deck and hatch corners. The loading caused by containers stowed within the holds and on top of hatch covers, expecially during rolling, is also emphasised. Order from BSRA as No. 51,905.
