NOTES ON THE INFLUENCE OF UNFAIR PLATING ON SHIP FAILURES BY BRITTLE FRACTURE

It was found that the unfairness of bottom or deck plating does not raise the tensile stresses to any significant degree. As any influence of unfairness on the danger of brittle fracture could be only through an increase of the tensile stresses, it is finally concluded that plating unfairness per se has no significant bearing on the problem of brittle fracture.
