Torsional stress arise when the ship is loaded / discharged unevenly along the port and starboard line. It tends to twist the ship along the centre line. Container ships mostly suffer from these kind of stresses. Torsional boxes are constructed in container ships so as to reduce the effect of torsional stresses.
