    Flexing Hulls

    i saw this short clip on the flexing hull of a container ship. Interesting to see the movement down passageways and decks. I'm sure our GRP boats twist as well in heavy seas.

    interesting.... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PmlTk_...ature=youtu.be

    That old saying about a tree bending with the wind applies. Before the additions were made to the 747 factory in Everett, WA for the 767, stress and flex measurements were conducted on the roof truss structure to ensure the lifting capabilities of the overhead cranes. The heaviest lift, both wings tip to tip is within one ton of the maximum for a two crane lift. They found that the roof section sank about 18". Many people are surprised by how much large structures are designed to flex.
