This volume addresses several topics of ship strength in greater depth than in the previous edition of PNA, bringing much of the material up to date and introducing some new subjects. Modern developments in classification society strength standards and modern rule developments are covered including Common Structural Rules for tankers and bulk carriers.
Ultimate strength evaluation of the hull girder and components is covered and there is a section on structural safety assessment applying reliability concepts including fatigue effects.
Particular attention is given to problems encountered in ships of special type and size that have been developed in recent years, many of which, by reason of size, configuration or lack of a history of design experience, require a design approach based on first principles.
