Abstract:
The term "code" as used in the construction industry is not applicable in the same sense to the shipbuilding industry. . .This paper reviews the history of codes for concrete ships and discusses the Federation Internationale de la Precontrainte (FIP) report, "Considerations for Design of Prestressed Concrete Ships." Design of the Arco-Pertamina liquid petroleum gas facility is described briefly.
