AbstractThis report described work conducted as part of a comprehensive study of the ultimate strength of ships frames. The current focus is on frames subject to intense local lateral loads, such as ice loads. The work was begun with support from Transport Canada to study single frames. The US Coast Guard then joined in the project and enabled an expansion of the experimental and numerical analysis. To date 8 single frames have been tested, with two more to be tested. The experimental program has been further expanded with the support of the Ship Structures Committee, which is funding the experimental investigation of large grillages.
