THE EFFECT OF SMALL CHANGES IN PRINCIPAL DIMENSIONS ON SHIP STRUCTURAL WEIGHT

The total differentials of bending moment and section modulus in terms of principal dimensions are combined to yield the total differential of the weight of longitudinally continuous structure. 'Proportioning factors are derived from geometric considerations for other structural elements. Still other structural elements which are expected to remain constant are identified.
