Overview This page provides a zip file for a benchmark study by the 21st International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress (ISSC) Committee III.1-Ultimate Strength. The files include test details, drawings, material data, geospatial measurements, and results for ultimate strength tests on a newly built grillage, ATC-1 that have been generated by Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division under funding from the US Navy's Office of Naval Research (ONR) Advanced Naval Platforms Division under the direction of Dr. Paul Hess. The folder “General Information” contains a detailed description of the study as well as a presentation on the experimental setup. Folder Structure General Information: Contains the study description, experimental setup, fabrication drawings Phase 1: Files distributed under Phase 1 of the study, namely a CAD model (IGES and STEP) and nominal data on the grillage properties Phase 2: Files distributed under Phase 2 of the study, namely data on measured (actual) structural properties as well as metrological data (point clouds) describing the as-constructed grillage shape Phase 3: Files distributed under Phase 1 of the study, namely precise thickness measurements, material acceptance certificates, and tensile test results Result: Load-shortening data for the ATC-1 grillage as well as test video Photos: Photos of the ATC-1 grillage at various phases in the testing cycle Release and Distribution of Data The information is approved for public release with unlimited distribution per DoDI 5230.24.
