Torps do about 1/4 damage to hull tanks as well. Any decent hull tank will run at around the same resistance as shield tanks.

Math wise hull tanking can tank more than shields but in game hull tanking seems to be less effective over shields. For years I hull tanked without shields but not any more Not really sure what changed. I keep running the math and it keeps saying shields should be weaker.
