The inherent deficiencies of traditional section modulus calculations once buckling of elements of the hull girder occurs under extreme loading are discussed. A technique for more accurately determining the effects of individual plate buckling on the integrity of the hull girder is presented, together with the supportive computer program (FLEXSM). Applications of FLEXSM to specific problems are described.
