A STUDY ON THE STRUCTURAL ACTION OF SUPERSTRUCTURES ON SHIPS

Starting from the assumption that the hull and the deck house may be considered as beams, to each of which, separately, Navier's hypothesis is applicable, the report gives expressions for the deflections and stresses in the hull and deck house assuming constant section of hull and house; it is shown that the theoretical stress distributions found are of the type observed in the tests. The results of this theory concerning the stresses in the mid-ship section can be arranged in simple tables which permit the prediction of the deviation from the conventionally assumed straight-line stress distribution. The method is equally applicable if a part or all of the deck house consists of aluminum.
