21) What is used to prevent accidental flooding of a double bottom or peak tanks in the event of a pipe rupture due to collision?
A) Separate lines are provided for filling and pumping these tanks.
B) Pipe lines must run vertically from the tank to a point above the margin line before turning fore or aft towards the pump.
C) All tanks must be served by the fewest possible number of pipes to reduce the possibility of rupture.
D) Suction lines are fitted with a non-return valve

22) In a transversely framed ship, the transverse frames are supported by all of the following EXCEPT __________.
A) girders
B) longitudinals
C) side stringers
D) web plates

23) In a longitudinally-framed ship, the longitudinal frames are held in place and
supported by athwartship members called __________.

B) margin plates
C) stringers
D) web frames

24) When the longitudinal strength members of a vessel are continuous and closely

25) A vessel having continuous closely spaced transverse strength members is __________.
A) longitudinally framed
B) transversely framed
C) cellular framed
D) web framed

26) In ship construction, frame spacing is __________.
A) greater at the bow and stern
B) reduced at the bow and stern
C) uniform over the length of the vessel
D) uniform over the length of the vessel, with the exception of the machinery spaces, where it is reduced due to increased stresses

27) Why are most break bulk vessels built with the transverse framing system rather than the longitudinal system?
A) The transverse system is more resistant to hog and sag stresses.
B) The numerous longitudinal frames cause excessive broken stowage.
C) The transverse system provides better support to the varying cargo densities on a break bulk vessel.

28) Transverse frames are more widely spaced on a ship that is designed with the __________.
A) centerline system of framing
B) isometric system of framing
C) longitudinal system of framing
D) transverse system of framing

29) What is the purpose of cant frames in steel vessels?
A) To support the overhang of the stern
B) To provide strength to shell plating at the stern Ship construction

31) Lighter longitudinal stiffening frames on the vessel's side plating are called __________.
A) stringers
B) side frames
C) side stiffeners
D) intercostals

A) at each frame
B) amidships
C) one-third the distance from the bow
