There was just a great show on the Fram. It is quite important for the culture of Norway. It detailed tons of interesting facts; apparantly the hull is 80cm thick made of three layers of boards and 120 cm thick at the very front. The ship was very strongly and well built but obviously as the commment below suggests was not simply brute force but also an ingenius design. The show detailed Nansen's amazing struggle to try to achieve the north pole.
Timeplan/Goal of the artice: It would be nice if this arcticle was featured as a "did you know..."; main goal is for me to have it "done" (wikipedia articles are never done) until Roald Amundsen goes up on the fron page, March 7. — Sverdrup (talk) 11:21, 28 Feb 2004 (UTC)
I think the Fram was not so strong, in fact it was built with lighter stucture than previous polar ships but it's shape makes that the resulting force of ice pressure pushed the boat upwards. Ericd 13:00, 28 Feb 2004 (UTC)

If there's anyone in Norway near the Fram museum...
I think an establishing shot of the overall ship outside of water would be a great help to this article, since that was its main departure from regular ship making 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:59, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
