Computerised numerical methods such as the Finite Element Method have extended the possibilities for complex structural vibration calculations considerably. However, as the calculation costs should always be weighted against the need for accuracy, classical anaytical methods are still of importance in the study of simple structures. Calculation of global hull and superstructure vibration as well as local vibration is discussed with emphasis on solutions by means of the Finite Element Method. Different method techniques for global vibration analysis are discussed. A number of examples are presented, and some comparisons are made between simple analytical solutions and Finite Element solutions. Order from: BSRA as No. 49,084.
