Some aspects of the proposed Construction Rules for "open ships'. 3. Instrumental aids for computer calculations. 4. Elastic mounting of deckhouses. 5. Some remarks on the acceptable limits of constructional pre-deformations. (a) The effect of constructional pre-deformations on the load-carrying behaviour of ship plating. (b) Constructional pre-deformation from the shipbuilder's point of view. 6. Design consequences of the IMCO Regulations for the subdivision of tankers. This first part of a report on the Colloquium gives a concise account of papers presented on the subject listed under 1. above by the following: 1(a): C. Oestergaard. 1(b): D. Koster. 1(c) H.J.
