One year full scale measurements available from a general cargo/container vessel were analyzed to determine the effect of whipping on fatigue for a vessel with hull flare and bow flare as the Victoriaborg. The measurements utilized comprise the global strains in the midship region. From the global strains and ship's geometric properties the hull girder bending moments were determined using a simple beam model. The wave and whipping induced hull girder bending moments and stress records were analyzed in detail.
