MEASUREMENT AND LONG-TERM PREDICTIONS ON THE LONGITUDINAL STRENGTH OF A CONTAINER SHIP (PACIFIC ARROW)

An account is given of an investigation in which the measured structural responses of the 26,800-dwt container-ship Pacific Arrow during North Pacific service were compared with theoretical values. The measurements were carried out during five voyages, and data were obtained on main hull stresses due to waves and on vertical accelerations. A theoretical analysis was made of the statistically-estimated long-term stresses in the longitudinal strength members with the aid of a total system-analysis computer-program developed by Nippon Kaiji Kyokai. The comparisons between the theoretical predictions and the processed test-data for the longitudinal stresses in the hull girder showed good agreement. Order from: BSRA as No. 47,921.
