SECTIONAL PROPERTY TABULATIONS FOR COMPUTER SOLUTION OF ACCELERATIONS CAUSED BY COLLISION. VOLUME II
Using the main scantlings for a 600,000 ton nuclear tanker and curves of weight per foot including steel outfit machinery and deadweight items developed by Newport News Shipbuilding, the vessel was divided into 20 sections with half stations at the ends. Cross sectional area, mass, moment of inertia and virtual mass were calculated at each section. Additional properties required for the vertical, horizontal and combined torsional-horizontal bending modes of vibration were calculated. These properties were calculated for both the ballast and full load conditions, and are used as input data to the General Bending Response Program as described in Volume I.
