Orthotropic shell analysis of a ship's bottom section
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1962-05)
In the interest of developing more thorough methods of analyzing ship structures, an entire bottom section extending from side to side and from one bulkhead to another is analyzed as an orthotropic shell of variable ...
Digital computer solutions of amidship structural design problems.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1960-06-01)
This thesis describes the programming of amidship structural design procedures for the IBM-704 computer. Two problems, the selection of scantlings and plating for the amidships portion of a ship's hull and the design of a ...
The applicability of x-ray diffraction methods of stress measurement to naval structures with an investigation of the stress distribution in a stiffened plate
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1949)
The X-ray diffraction method of stress measurement is the only known means of determining absolute stress magnitudes without measurements in the unstressed condition. It is the objective of this thesis to investigate the ...
