PROPELLER STRESS MEASUREMENTS AND HULL VIBRATION MEASUREMENTS ON SS MICHIGAN

This report deals with a testing program carried out aboard the SS MICHIGAN for the purpose of identifying factors that might be related to blade failures that were experienced by other vessels in the COLORADO Class ships. The report presents data on the voyage route of the MICHIGAN; instrumentation installed to measure propeller blade stresses and hull vibrations aboard the vessel; results of these measurements; comparison of predicted stresses with measured stresses; and recommendation for future programs for measuring propeller stress and hull vibrations.
