PROJECTED SHIP TYPES TO THE YEAR 2000
In defining the direction that ship structural research should be taking, it is important that we be aware of the types of ships that will be required in the future, and the structural challenges that these ships will present, lest we concentrate our efforts on the wrong problems. The marine vehicles of the future will present many structural challenges by virtue of requirements for new services, missions and trades heretofore unencountered. This paper presents a view of the ship types that will be required in the year 2000, with the objective being to determine the requirements for advanced structural research, and to provide a basis for developing technology beneficial to the marine industry and the nation as a whole.
