Load up the Willy Peter. Fire when ready.
I had he pleasure of working with one of those MIT grads that made building the liberty ships possible. His and his colleges did stress analysis using his newly developed resistive strain gauge to come up with the welding schedule for the ships. Liberty ships were the largest welded structures of the day. The first ones being welded up in he wrong order would build stresses great enough then they often split or cracked the keel on launching. It ws amazing story to listen too from one of the people that were there.Everyone did whatever they could, and more.Eck!
