The data requirements for a standard strain recorder are developed to obtain ship structural response data for a number of applications. A review of the state of the art in strain recording instrumentation is presented and compared to the ideal instrumentation. A specific standard strain recorder is recommended that is flexible in operation and capabilities. The standard strain recorder is capable of recording ship structural response data resulting from severe environments, facilitating the validation of load criteria and the analysis of ship structural response.
