STRUCTURAL RESPONSE AND COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN PROCEDURE
A general review of computational techniques employed in predicting structural response and the utilization of computers in the design of ships is presented in this paper. The availability, applications, restrictions and merits of some popular computer programs are discussed. Emphasis is placed on the correlation between theoretical and experimental results, the deviation of stress distribution from linearity, and structural optimization techniques. Points of interest are illustrated by graphs and examples. Recommendations for future items of research are also presented.
