It is announced a new procedure for the real-time overall hull response monitoring system depends on inclinometer sensor data. The procedure requires a few inclinometer sensors' data, located on the deck. Sensor data is used to obtain curvature values; and curvature values are used to find out displacements or relevant moment values according to pre-calculated moment-curvature diagrams. Numerical studies are demonstrated with reasonable accuracy for the pre-ultimate and the post-ultimate nonlinear behaviors. Elastic, inelastic, and post-collapse structural bending moment capacity determination of the hull has been presented. The proposed inverse engineering technique will be able to see the response of the hull in real-time with high accuracy to manage the course and speed when cruising or control the loading and the unloading process at the port.
