SHIP STRUCTURAL LOADS FOR CONCRETE SHIPS AND VESSELS
Static, quasi-static, and dynamic ship hull loads are discussed. For purposes of computing the seaway loads and primary hull structural responses, the ship is assumed to behave as a simple beam, and the longitudinal distribution of net load that may be integrated to obtain the shear force and bending moment is determined, and computer application to load calculations is explained. The net load distribution is obtained by taking the difference between the weight and buoyancy curves. The shear and bending moment distributions are then the first and second integrals of this net load. Typical ship weight/buoyancy distributions are such that the maximum shear occurs near the quarter length points, and the maximum bending moment is near amidships for still water, hogging, and sagging conditions.
