Abstract
IT IS PROPOSED THAT A PREVIOUS FRACTURE MECHANICS LIFE TECHNOLOGY SURVEY PREPARED BY FAILURE ANALYSIS ASSOCIATES FOR NASA BE UPDATED AND EXTENDED TO A SURVEY FOR CRACK GROWTH IN SUBMARINE HULL STRUCTURAL DETAILS. COMPUTER PROGRAMS FROM THE SURVEY THAT SURVIVE A SCREENING WILL BE EVALUATED IN DETAIL. THOSE SURVIVING THE DETAILED EVALUATION WILL BE BENCHMARKED AGAINST EXPERIMENTAL CASES TO ASSESS THEIR ACCURACY. RECOMMENDATIONS WILL BE MADE FOR RESEARCH REQUIRED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF SUBMARINE HULL STRUCTURES.
