Chapter 3:

ship structure

CHAPTER SUMMARY
Chapter 3 includes provisions to ensure that the material and scantlings of ships with or without ice strengthening retain their structural integrity under certain environmental loads and conditions. This chapter seeks to provide assurance that a ship’s structure is suitable for the environmental conditions (e.g. ice loads and temperature) by requiring that a ship’s design plan be made to a recognized standard, such as the Polar Class or the Finnish-Swedish (Baltic) classes, and that materials be suitable if the vessel operate at low temperatures. These are clearly set out in the Chapter 3 wording below, and in the Part 1B Additional Guidance.
