The journal International Shipbuilding Progress (ISP) was founded in 1954. Each year two issues appear (in March and September). Publications submitted to ISP should describe scientific work of high international standards, advancing subjects related to the field of Marine Technology, such as:
- Concept development
- General design of ships and offshore objects
- Ship and offshore structural design
- Hydro-mechanics and -dynamics
- Maritime engineering and machinery systems
- Production processes of all types of ships and other objects intended for marine use
- Production technology and material science
- Shipping science, economics, and all directly related subjects
- Ship operations
- Offshore and ocean engineering in relation to the marine environment
- Marine safety
- Efficiency, lifecycle, and environment
- Ice-related aspects for ships and offshore objects.
The contents of the papers may be of a fundamental or of an applied scientific nature and must be of the highest novelty and rigor.

Abstract: The horsepower of a ship predicted by a tank test is usually the value in a calm sea, but a considerable power should be added to this when a ship is steaming in a seaway. Though the increase of the resistance due to the waves encountered, has been recognized for a long time, there are different opinions as to the cause of the excess resistance. In 1939, Dr. Kreitner  suggested that the additional resistance is mainly due to the reflection of sea waves, but Sir Thomas H. Havelock  did not agree with him, showing the drifting force due …to wave reflection to be very small. In 1942, Havelock  proposed a theory in which the additional resistance arose from the phase difference between the ship’s motion and the excitation of the wave. Some computations were carried out by Mr. M. St. Denis, according to Havelock’s theory . From the theoretical point of view, however, this method is only an approximate or tentative one. Some years ago, Mr. Hanaoka  gave a theory of the wave resistance of a ship which is forced to oscillate, and he showed a considerable increase of the wave resistance due to forced heaving and pitching. He also applied the theory to the resistance experienced by a ship among waves making the approximation that the effect of the seaway was expressed by the wavy motion of the ship’s surface relative to still water . The additional resistance obtained by Hanaoka is different from Havelock’s findings. There seem, then, to be at least two independent components in the additional resistance. Unfortunately, however, we have not found any reasonable connection between them, because Hanaoka’s theory was originally based upon the motion of a ship in still water instead of the actual seaway. The difficulty lies in the fact that the additional wave resistance appears in the higher order quantity which is usually omitted in the linearized theory, but if we examine carefully the terms which should be omitted and those which should be taken into account, we can still make use of the linearized theory in solving the problem of the excess resistance of a ship in rough seas. In this paper, the author will propose a general theory of the force experienced by a ship oscillating amongst waves, and then he will attempt a computation of the motion of a ship of simple shape in head seas, from which the resistance increase will be evaluated.

Abstract: In computing the bending moment and stresses in a multisection cargo boom for the purposes of picking scantlings, all of the factors contributing to the deflection of the boom are readily computed except for the deflection of the boom due to its own weight. The deadweight deflection of the boom is normally computed by means of the semi graphical conjugate beam or area moment methods. Such a solution may take several hours. This paper develops equations by which deflections of two and three section cargo booms may be computed in a much shorter time. The paper also illustrates the use …of McCaulay’s Method which is a useful tool in solving problems of this type and which is not commonly known to most engineers. Show more
