ECONOMICS AND PROBLEM AREAS OF STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION OPTIONS FOR LARGE PRESTRESSED CONCRETE SHIPS AND VESSELS
Structural shapes, forms, and methods of construction now available to the industry and profession are analyzed in order to obtain optimum designs for given criteria and conditions. The basic economics of prestressed concrete versus steel as materials for these vessels is compared.
