In order to design marine stuctures to withstand different loads, it is necessary to have a good
knowledge of the different structural components and how they can take up loads. They can be:
Click on an element to learn more about it. The sub pages here covers general theory about the different
structural components, as well as solution methods for solving problems and applications of
the components in modelling. Also, there are some interactive Java applets in the plate buckling
part and in the beam part.
