A PROCEDURE FOR THE TRANSVERSE STRENGTH ASSESSMENT OF LARGE BULK CARRIER SHIPS

This paper synthesizes a research carried out since 1971 in order to update the relevant R.I.NA. procedure for transverse strength calculation for bulk carriers. The procedure based on the substructuring technique, includes some ideas reducing the errors embedded in the method and leads to reliable results as shown by comparison with full scale measurements, some of which are presented. On the contrary the weak point is related to loads and allowable stresses, for which reference is made to the relevant Rules.
