Three New Technical Reports Available From Ship Structure Committee

The Ship Structure Committee, an Interagency Advisory Committee dedicated to improving the structure of ships, has recently published three new technical reports that are available free of charge.

SSC-297, "Evaluation of Liquid Dynamic Loads in Slack LNG Cargo Tanks," presents a review of worldwide scale model sloshing data and reduces the data to a common format for the purpose of design load coefficients. Additional scale model laboratory experiments have been conducted to supplement the available model sloshing data.

SSC-298, " I n v e s t i g a t i o n of Steels for Improved Weldability in Ship Construction—Phase 1," is the initial effort of an ongoing project to minimize heat affected zone and weld-metal property degradation for high deposition rate welding. Two production steels and 20 laboratory heats of steels of various chemical compositions have been recommended for further examination.

SSC-299, "Ultimate Strength of a Ship's Hull Girder in Plastic and Buckling Modes," analyzes limiting conditions beyond which a ship's hull girder will fail to perform its function. Vertical and lateral bending moments and torsional moments are used to develop a procedure for estimating the ultimate capacity of the hull.
