THE LONG SHIPS INTO THE SEVENTIES
In 1969, with the opening of the new Poe Lock connecting Lake Superior to its four sisters, a resurgence of shipbuilding on the Great Lakes began with a quantum jump in the allowable size of vessel. New design criteria were needed and the marine community, research organizations, governmental groups, and the regulatory bodies entered into a cooperative venture to develop and assess these criteria. This paper outlines, from an operator's viewpoint, what should be considered in developing new strength standards and, in addition, outlines the history of the research effort to define the ship environment and its loads. It also presents a summary of some of the full scale data and provides a starting point for those interested in further research.
