Abstract
THIS STUDY INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY AND SUITABILITY OF APPLYING A MODULAR COMPOSITE STRUCTURE TO HOUSE AND SUPPORT TORPEDO-TUBE LAUNCHED WEAPONS IN SUBMARINES. THE PROPERTIES OF THE STRUCTURE THAT ARE INVESTIGATED IN GREATEST DETAIL ARE WEIGHT AND VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY. SECONDARY INFLUENCES CONSIDERED AND QUANTIFIED ARE 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 DESIGN AND PROCUREMENT PROCESS, IS BY COMPARISON WITH EXISTING STRUCTURES, CURRENTLY USED TECHNIQUES, AND KNOWN WEAPON CAPACITIES. THE TORPEDO ROOM EQUIPMENT OF AN EXISTING ATTACH SUBMARINE IS USED AS A MODEL. THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE ROOM, EQUIPMENT ENCLOSED, WEAPON STOWAGE STRUCTURE, AND HULL ATTACHMENTS ARE THE GIVEN QUANTITIES FOR THE STUDY. A STOWAGE STRUCTURE OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS IS DESIGNED TO USE THE SAME ENVELOPE SO THE DIFFERENCES, ADVANTAGES, AND DISADVANTAGES OF THE PROPOSED STRUCTURE CAN BE ENUMERATED.
