ANALYSIS OF THE TORSIONAL RESPONSE OF THE SL-7 HULL STRUCTURE BY USE OF THE FINITE-BEAM TECHNIQUE AND COMPARISON WITH OTHER TECHNIQUES

A technique for analyzing a nonprismatic beam girder by subdividing it into a number of prismatic finite-beam elements, abbreviated herein as the FB-technique, is used for torsional analysis of the SL-7 containerships hull structure. Comparison with earlier model tests and finite-element (FE) calculations is done and in general a close agreement with the results obtained earlier is found.
