Three Free Reports A v a i l a b l e From Ship Structure Committee

The Ship Structure Committee has copies available of three new reports without cost.

SSC-291, "A Design Procedure for Minimizing Propeller-Induced Vibration in Hull Structural Elements," develops a flow diagram starting with the definition of the ship vibration specifications, continuing through the design and construction phases, until the actual vibration levels measured aboard ship during sea trials are compared with the specifications.

The 27 separate design steps are presented in a logical sequence, which allows for iterations and feed-back at the appropriate stages of propeller and hull design and model testing.

SSC-292, "Report on Ship Vibration Symposium '78," is a summary of the Ship Vibration Symposium held in Arlington, Va., in October 1978. It succintly presents the state-of-the-art in shipboard vibration and noise, and offers key conclusions and recommendations reached at the symposium.

SSC-293, "Underwater Nondestructive Testing of Ship Hull Welds," is a state-of-the-art study of underwater inspection techniques.

Radiography, ultrasonic inspection, and magnetic particle testing are particularly discussed, along with necessary modifications for underwater applications.

For free copies of these reports, an index of past reports, or further information, write to Comdr.
