STRUCTURAL DYNAMIC PROBLEMS IN SHIPS AND OTHER MARINE STRUCTURES

The paper presents a comprehensive survey of the problems involving dynamics in ships and other marine structures. Emphasis is given to the source and nature of the various dynamic loadings encountered by marine structures in the ocean environment, and their resulting dynamic behavior. Analytical techniques, such as strip theory and the finite element method, used to predict the loads and structural responses of these structures for design and analysis purposes are briefly discussed. The status of experimental work aimed at clarifying the fundamental nature of the loads and responses is reviewed.
