    first i wanna says that im new here. Im a student from one of those University in Malaysia and currently i am taking bachelor in naval architecture and. I have given one assignment from my lecturer regarding the "method of testing a steel or aluminium boat in destructive way". Problem is i couldnt find any information and any idea about this method. when i try to search it i only found the NDT (non-destructive way) to testing boat. what i know about this destructive test is that it will result in sample destruction. I hope you experienced people could help me about this problem. please reply me asap. tq

    What do you want to test, hull girder or fatigue? What type of loading; point or distributed? Model or full scale? What hull type?

    There have been tests to destruction before; very expensive national level type of things. They are out there if you know what to look for.

    I've got a report somewhere on destructive testing of ships panels, both buckling and fatigue. Fine tuning allowable stresses etc and good for checking against the classification societies presumtions.

    as jeh. said it's a very big expensive enterpise.

    Both hull girder and fatigue. My lecturer doesn't told in detail but she said u must choose a part of the boat so i choose the hull. Boat Model is okay. Hull type is "displacement hull"
