Abstract
The report describes the capabilities of the computer program SCRAP, one of a suite of computer codes that have been developed at the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic for the analysis of ship structures. SCRAP is an elastic strength evaluation and model generation program, which can be used to construct equivalent beam models of ship hulls for use in static, vibration, and dynamic response analyses. The capabilities of SCRAP include the calculation of elastic strength related properties, definition of ineffective material, display of primary and shear stress distributions in the hull, display of primary stress distribution in the deckhouse, calculation of added fluid mass associated with the hull form, and the assembly of processed cross-sections to form the equivalent beam model of the hull.
