    ASTM F2991

    Abstract

    This guide provides information for designing permanent steel doublers used in surface ships that are not classed with any classification society and not load line certified. It describes the requirements for designing and welding a doubler plate to the damaged portion of the structure so that the damaged structure regains its original local strength. For the welding of steel, the guide prescribes a welding procedure suitable for the grade of steel and intended use or service. The standard covers the applicability of doubler plates, materials and their manufacture, dimensions, workmanship, finish, appearance, and inspection.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers information for designing permanent steel doublers for surface ships that are not classed with any classification society, and not load line certified. It is not intended to supersede any classification or statutory requirements.

    1.2 This guide provides owners, operators, shipyards, and designers with information for designing and using doubler plates so that the damaged structure regains its original local strength.

    1.3 When the steel is to be welded a welding procedure suitable for the grade of steel and intended use or service is to be utilized. See Appendix X3 of Specification A6/A6M for information on weldability.

    1.4 The values stated in metric units (SI) are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses (inch/pound) are provided for information only.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
