Stress finders' and computerised loadicators have reduced the risk of errors. There are several on the market, generally custom made for individual vessels, and they provide the operator with such items of information as: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Bending moment. Shear stress at critical points. Mean draught. Trim of the vessel. GM final, after loading. Deadweight. The information supplied depends on the make and type of software employed. 27 Shearingstresses. Hogging . . . ,x . . v . 28 . . . .

This can subsequently be de-clutched when working anchor cables. A separate braking system is incorporated in each cable holder, similar to that fitted to the windlass. A devil's claw or shpping arrangement is sited between the bow stopper and the holder. Where cable holders are used, the lead of cable is always close to the deck. To prevent excessive wear to deck plating from cable friction, a 'Scotsman' is a common fixture to provide the required protection. Variations of combined capstan/cable holders are available on the commercial market, powered by steam or, more commonly, electricity.

May be longitudinally or transversely constructed. Longitudinal Girders Resist hogging and sagging, water pressure, drydocking and pounding stresses, and localised shearing stresses.
