Abstract
This report describes a simple ship structural model and its use in testing the computer program MAESTRO for balance on a wave loading. Using the structural optimization features in MAESTRO, the model was optimized for the given loading. The structural stresses and MAESTRO adequacy parameters resulting from the loading of the original model and the optimized model are predicted and compared.
