RIGID BODY SHIP RESPONSES AND ASSOCIATED PERIODS FOR A SERIES OF LIQUID NATURAL GAS (LNG) SHIPS

A procedure to determine extreme ship responses for the prediction of maximum tank accelerations in LNG ships has previously been developed. This procedure requires three inputs to enable the extreme values to be determined--the root mean square ship responses, the extreme wave heights as given by historical data, and the probability of exceeding a certain response level within a specified time. The purpose of the Report is to develop the RMS ship responses required to enable LNG tank design acceleration rules to be determined. The acutal design rules are not included in the Report. Order from BSRA as No. 49,423.
