AN AUTOMATED BENDING SYSTEM FOR THE FABRICATION OF SHIP FRAMES VIA SELF - ADAPTIVE COMPUTER CONTROL
This report includes discussions of: (a) experiments on the bending of model sections; (b) design and construction of a through feed bending fixture; (c) progress to date on computer control; (d) a modified time schedule; (e) financial summary to date; and an appendix 'An analytical method for the development of load displacement curves for the bending of rectangular beams.' The work of the second six months of the program is summarized and the work planned for the completion of the program is outlined.
