FABRICATION TOLERANCES FOR SHIP SHELL PLATING: A PROPOSAL

Existing standards in the field of deflection tolerances for ship plating are reviewed, and differences between standards are pointed out. The influence of initial deflections on plate strength in compression is then analyzed as constituting the basis for plate deflection standards. Statistical results are given from many years of measurement by Polish shipyards of ship plating fabrication deflections. Criteria for fabrication tolerances are presented, and a proposal for standards is offered.
