    Yes, In this forum you can find a reference to CE regulations. I don't know where but the search function will clear it all up for you.

    You will find the calculations in ISO 12215-1 or 2 or 3, depends on youre ship.

    Better have a look at ISO 12215-5, "design pressures, design tensions and determining scantlings"

    Are you trying to determine at what stress point the different parts of the boat break or what the dimensions should be?
