RULES FOR BUILDING AND CLASSING STEEL VESSELS

These rules have been published annually since 1890, and the 1979 edition covers steel vessels of 61 m and over in length, intended for unrestricted ocean service. Topics covered include requirements for a quality assurance programme for rolled steel, requirements for refrigerated cargo containers, and a guide to automatic bridge control integrated propulsion systems. In addition, this year's volume contains major modifications to requirements for preheat and postweld treatment for plates, tubes, and piping.
