Overview - Excerpt from Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Naval: Architecture Being the Article Ship-Building in the Encyclopedia Britannica, Seventh Edition

In the generalizations of this part of the Treatise, the endeavour has been to point out those portions of the structure that are capable of being adequately strengthened to resist the usual strains to which they will be subjected also those parts in which strength may be most advantageously accumulated as a reserve, and those other parts which it is necessary to strengthen by support to be derived from these stronger portions of the structure.  Read more...

Overview
Excerpt from Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Naval: Architecture Being the Article Ship-Building in the Encyclopedia Britannica, Seventh Edition

In the generalizations of this part of the Treatise, the endeavour has been to point out those portions of the structure that are capable of being adequately strengthened to resist the usual strains to which they will be subjected also those parts in which strength may be most advantageously accumulated as a reserve, and those other parts which it is necessary to strengthen by support to be derived from these stronger portions of the structure. By this means it is conceived that a ship of uniform strength or power of resistance to external force, and to strains from excess of cargo, and from stress of weather, may be insured. It is presumed that a ship of adequate strength against all but the unavoidable contingencies already mentioned, can scarcel y fail of being built, if any of the recognised schemes of scant lings be taken as the basis of the dimensions of her timbers, and the reasonings of the Trea tise be considered in their disposition, or in any modification of them.
