THE APPLICATION OF HIGH-STRENGTH STEELS IN MEDIUM-SIZE SHIPS OF MODERN DESIGN
The Authors, of, respectively, Det Norske Veritas and E.N. Bazan (El Ferrol), review the present position of high-strength steels in ship construction and discuss the present and future application of these steels to medium-size ships. The paper is arranged as follows: (1) Introduction. 2. Types of High-Strength Steels (General considerations--Steels used in warship construction); 3. Some Considerations relating to the Mechanical Properties, Welding, Corrosion, and Application of High-Strength Steels. (a) Tensile Strength of a High-Strength Steel for a given Yield Point (Fatigue strength--Weldable high-strength steels--Laminar tearing--Absence of welding problems, with some limitations). (b) Sea-Water Corrosion. 4. Viewpoint of the Classification Societies in the Calculation of Scantlings for High-Strength Steel (Longitudinal strength--Local scantlings--Failure strength of hull structures--Buckling resistance of hull structures). 5. A consideration of Warship Design.
