Using the finite-element method, the Author examines and discusses the stress concentrations that may occur at discontinuities in a hull structure owing to internal loads such as bending moments and shear forces. Cracking due to stress concentrations at various locations (e.g., at hatch corners, various bracket-toes, bulkheads, snaped ends of stiffeners, girder web plates, and bilge areas of double bottoms), and how such stress concentrations should be dealt with in structural design, are considered in some detail. Order from: BSRA as No. 46,872.
