STRUCTURAL DESIGN STUDY OF A HIGH LENGTH-TO-BEAM RATIO SURFACE EFFECT SHIP

Parametric studies are performed to determine the effect on structural weight fraction of (1) varying loading conditions and (2) varying material strength. It has been found that the structural weight fraction of the 4000-ton surface effect ship (SES) is sensitive to longitudinal bending, torsion, and pressure loads in descending order, in contrast to the smaller "ses" when pressure loadings dominate the design. Order from NSFI as No. 16342.
