Based on the Strength Assessment, Modification of Structural Scantling may be required either
to increase the strength (in case of inadequate strength) or reducing strength (in case of excessive
strength / overly design). The modification can be in the form of adding/removing structures,

changing plating thickness or/and changing section modulus for stiffening members. It is
recommended that once modification has been carried out, the strength Assessment need to be
carried out once again.
