These weaker ships were at the end of the battle line and were punished severely by the oncoming Chinese fleet.
The battleships were side-by-side in the center with the remaining ships alongside (spreading into a sort of arrowhead shape)--unfortunately the weakest ships were placed on the flanks of the formation and were pounded by the Japanese line as it circled around the Chinese fleet.
It is generally said that the crews of the Chinese ships fought bravely, and were let down by their leadership--one widely reported example being the captain of the protected cruiser Tsi Yuen, who turned his ship around early in the battle and fled for home--ramming another Chinese ship along the way.

The original plan of Admiral Cervera to engage the American fleet off Santiago de Cuba was to sacrifice his flagship, the armoured cruiser Infanta María Teresa, in trying to disable the American flagship USS Brooklyn.
The plan was likely influenced by the battle of Lissa in 1866 in which the Italian flagship was sunk by ramming.
As a result, the Teresa was crippled before she could inflict any damage on the Brooklyn, though the objective of causing confusion in the American line was attained to some extent.
