Abstract
AN ANALYTICAL STUDY AND TEST PROGRAM TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING PLASTIC FOAM MATERIALS TO ATTENUATE THE SHOCK WAVES PRODUCED BY UNDERWATER EXPLOSIONS IS PROPOSED. PHASE I OF THE PROJECT WILL VERIFY THAT SUCH MATERIALS CAN SIGNIFICANTLY DECREASE THE INTENSITY OF SHOCK WAVES REACHING SUBMARINE AND SURFACE SHIP HULLS. AN INITIAL SELECTION OF CANDIDATE MATERIALS WILL BE MADE AND A NEAR OPTIMUM INTERNAL STRUCTURE OF THE AIR CELLS WILL BE ESTABLISHED.
