The declared principal intention of this standard guide was to depict the recommended practices relating to the design of vessel's structural details. We all clearly understand the huge importance of the structural details - their fabrication and layout play significant role in making the costs for the hull construction, the details may often be the source of various failures like fractures that could easily lead to the damage of the ship's hull; another important aspect of the problem in question is that the analysis of hull structural details have been neglected by the researchers so far. It should also be noted that today's trends towards decreasing the scantlings of the vessel's hull may also increase the potential of the damage happening to the details. Taking into account the noted lack of the analytical and experimental efforts to the research of the problems touching the structural details, the determination in this case was left solely to the designers/draftsmen with little to no input from engineering side. This publication gives a recommended listing of the structural details to be used when constructing the vessel - this listing list includes the details that have already failed in service and are therefore not recommended for any further use.
