Advanced backbone deployed to measure bending modes of ultra-large container vessels

MARIN carried out a series of model tests on behalf of the Marine Design and Research Institute of China (MARIC) to assess the flexural response of an ultra-large container ship (ULCS). A 10-segmented model was mounted on an advanced backbone to replicate the vertical and horizontal bending modes and tested in a range of wave conditions.
