RESULTS FROM FULL-SCALE MEASUREMENTS OF MIDSHIP BENDING STRESSES ON THREE DRY CARGO SHIPS

This report summarizes the activities undertaken by Teledyne Materials Research under Ship Structure Committee Project SR-153 during a three and one-half year period to investigate certain aspects of the structural response of three dry-cargo ships to wave loads. This work continues earlier studies sponsored by the Ship Structure Committee. Work is concluding on Mormacscan and California Bear and will continue on Wolverine State which is also instrumented to gather data for project SR-172, Slamming Studies to be reported under separate cover.
