ON ULTIMATE COLLAPSE OF SHIP STRUCTURES-RESEARCH IN JAPAN

An outline of research on the collapse of ship structural components recently carried out in Japan is given in this paper. Subjects covered include the external forces induced in ships' hulls by waves, the cargo pressure acting on the walls of holds, stress analysis of whole ship structures, the collapse of ship structural components and the fatigue strength of local structures such as slots and joints. The paper concludes with some comments on finite-element and matrix methods which are considered important for the design of nuclear-powered ships and also for vessels carrying dangerous cargoes.
