STRENGTH OF SHIPS-ON THE NEUTRAL AXIS LOCATION

This work is an attempt at determining the optimum neutral axis location in the midship section of a vessel, using as a model for the calculations a box girder, subject to several different conditions of sagging and hogging bending moments; several values of design stress are also considered and in the end what happens when lateral hydrostatic load is considered along with different values assigned to the design stress in tension and in compression is also analysed.
