Hull Structure Committee


The mission of the Hull Structure Committee (HSC) is to develop guidance to help designers and others concerned with the design and maintenance of hull structures. In support of this task the HSC evaluates relevant trends, identifies gaps in available guidance, undertakes research, and develops up to date guidance useful to the marine community. The scope currently includes design methods, hull loads, strength assessment, vibrations, materials and hull instrumentation and the work of the HSC is carried out by six panels.

  • Mark Eichler helped me get the Hull Structures Committee micro site up (well, actually he did all the work, while I watched so I could see how it's done). I look forward to working on the site and using it as a focal point for getting HSC work out...
