This report presents the results of the study, and is concerned specifically with research objectives and approaches aimed at the ultimate improvement in the design of ship hulls of conventional form. It presents a suggested long-range research program based on a critical review of past and current research, calling attention to problem areas where significant advances can be made by further research. The report is in no sense intended as a working design manual, nor does it cover the complete range of ship structural problems.
