COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR ULTIMATE STRENGTH ANALYSIS OF SHIP HULLS SUBJECTED TO MOMENT, TORQUE AND SHEAR

This report describes a computer program for the determination of the behavior and ultimate strength of longitudinally stiffened ship hull girders of single-cell cross section subjected to moment, shear and torque. The logic of the program and of its subroutines is presented. The input for the program consists of the geometrical and material properties of the girder segment, and of the relative values of the forces applied to the cross section: moment, shear and torque. The output gives the curvature of the girder segment and the corresponding load parameter that is related to the bending moment, shear and torque acting on the cross section. All the principal variables and the formats of the input and output are defined.
