ON THE STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS OF SHIP HULLS IN WAVES

The manner in which wave induced hull streses are produced is examined as a problem of structural dynamics. The treatment is set out in elementary terms using a simplified theoretical model, called a 'uniform ship'. The analysis covers seakeeping behavior as well as structural dynamics (the boundary between which is at best somewhat ill-defined) and it indicates certain areas where the knowledge appears to be deficient. In particular attention is drawn to the apparent importance of the lowest modes of a hull, which seem invariably to be supposed distortion-free and about which very little is known.
