A method is described for the determination of the behavior and maximum strength of longitudinally stiffened single-cell ship hull girders under the combined loading of moment, shear and torque. The main features are: (1) individual components are analyzed under a requirement of deformational compatibility among them; (2) the compression flange is assumed to be made up of parallel beam- columns; (3) a multiple tension-field action is considred for the webs in the postbuckling stage; and (4) warping of the cross section is incorporated by assuming linear variation of the average axial deformations across the width of each component. A previously developed computer program was modified to carry out the analysis. Related topics are recommended for future investigation.
