INSTRUMENTATION - THE ONLY WAY
Communication between the theoretical analyst of ship structures and the practicing naval architect can be improved by the mutual use of experiemental full-scale data from instrumented ships. Such data can provide information on seaway loads, ship responses, and the transfer function between them. In addition, full-scale data can be used to verify or modify theory, investigate operational problems, and determine, through a calibration experiment, ship responses to applied loads in structural regions where calculations are difficult or impossible. Three examples taken from instrumentation projects undertaken on the SL-7 Class Containerships are presented.
