COST OF SHIP VIBRATION PROBLEMS
For the purpose of quantifying and assessing the resulting costs traceable to ship vibration problems, a survey was taken of 215 ships built after 1950. Expenses shown cover both corrective action to alleviate vibration and repairs of vibration-related damage. In certain cases, the lost productivity associated with a change in operating mode (usually a reduction in service speed) is assigned computed values. Findings from the survey are presented, together with pertinent comments from ship operators regarding their ship vibration problems.
