deck stringer plate and is made especially heavy. It is connected
by a heavy angle bar to the sheer strake of the shell plating and
acts with it in furnishing upper flange strength to the ship as a
girder. The deck stringer is fitted in every case whether the
remainder of the deck is to be plated or merely planked. Its inner
edge runs approximately parallel to its outer edge. The remainder
of the deck plating is arranged in strakes parallel to the centre
line of the ship. The seams are commonly joggled except in cases
where the projecting laps would be objectionable, as for a deck to
be covered with linoleum or protective deck plating, in which cases
the deck plating is worked flush with butt and seam straps
underneath. Fia. 54.--Connections at sides of watertight decks. The
boundaries of the deck plating are connected to the intersecting
coamings, shell plating or bulkheads by bounding or boundary bars
or simple angles one flange of which is riveted to the deck plating
and the other to the coaming, shell plating or bulkhead, as the
case may be. Methods of connecting the deck plating of a
water-tight deck to the shell plating are shown in the three upper
sketches of Fig. 54. The stringer plate is notched out around each
frame and forged angle staples are fitted between and around the
frame bars. Typical constructions for angle, Z-bar and channel
frames are shown, but numerous other arrangements are possible and
will be found used to accomplish the same purpose--which is to
furnish a means of making a completely water-tight connection of
deck to shell. In the case of the highest deck of the hull such
stapling is not necessary as the frames terminate below the deck.
Here the stringer angle bar runs continuously...
