Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: ...in turn, integrated and plotted as the curve of bending stress, M M M, with a maximum stress at the middle of the length of 15815.3 foot tons. This stress may be compared with that of Condition 1, and the unexpected result of a slight reduction in the stress will be noticed which is directly due to the concentration of buoyancy at the ends of the vessel in the line of the weights of lading. VESSEL 1). connrrron 3. PLATE 60. 36. The intact steamer, in the original condition of lading, is now taken to be floating in the hollow of a wave of its own length of 300', and of a height equal to 1 '20 of the length, or 15', as shown on the plate. The vessel floats at a mean draught, recorded by the axis of the wave on the midship section, of 2 3. 38' and trims.78' by the head relatively to the horizontal. The curve of weight is unchanged and the curve of buoyancy follows the characteristic form of the wave profile as shown by the curve, B B B, on the plate. 37. Fair sized blocks of excess buoyancy and weight now exist alternately throughout the length a11d give the curve of shearing stress, S S S, which crosses the base line some six times, and, when integrated for the curve of bending stress, gives a maximum stress of 16143.1 foot tons. This result may be compared with that found in Condition 1 and shows a slightly reduced stress due to the concentration of the buoyancy of the wave form in the vertical line of the weights. VESSEL 1). coumrron 4. PLATE 61. 38. The engine and boiler section of the steamer may again be taken as bilged and the vessel as floating across the hollow of the standard wave. The steamer settles a mean depth of 3.8', as measured by the position of the axis of the wave on the midship section, and trims 1. 5 by the...show more
