In this paper the results of the destructive experiment of a 1/5 scale ship hull model is reported. The model was designed to be as similar as possible to the midship part of the destroyer escort and subjected to pure bending moment.<BR>The general buckling strength of the upper deck was mainly studied considering the effects of under-deck structures.<BR>A loading device was specially constructed for this experiment.<BR>Buckling of the upper deck occured over two frame spaces and its load agreed with a theoretical estimation.
