Abstract
THIS STUDY INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY AND SUITABILITY OF APPLYING A COMPOSITE STRUCTURE TO ENCLOSE ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT IN SUBMARINES. THE PROPERTIES OF THE STRUCTURE THAT ARE INVESTIGATED IN GREATEST DETAIL ARE WEIGHT AND VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY. SECONDARY INFLUENCES CONSIDERED AND QUANTIFIED ARE SHIP CONSTRUCTION EFFORT, TIME TO TEST ELECTRONICS, PERFORMANCE UNDER SHOCK LOADING AND CHARACTERISTICS OF VIBRATION DAMPING AND NOISE TRANSMISSION. THE METHOD USED TO QUANTIFY THE BENEFITS OF THE SUBJECT STRUCTURE, IN TERMS RELEVANT TO THE SUBMARINE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS, IS BY COMPARISON WITH EXISTING STRUCTURES, CURRENTLY USED TECHNIQUES, AND KNOWN CONSTRUCTION TIMETABLES. THE COMBAT SYSTEM EQUIPMENT SPACE OF AN EXISTING ATTACH SUBMARINE IS USED AS A MODEL. THE SIZE, SHAPE, EQUIPMENT ENCLOSED, CABINETS, WIREWAY, DECK STRUCTURE, AND HULL ATTACHMENTS ARE THE GIVEN QUANTITIES FOR THE STUDY. A COMPOSITE STRUCTURE IS DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE THE SAME EQUIPMENT AND THE DIFFERENCES, ADVANTAGES, AND DISADVANTAGES ARE ENUMERATED.
