Abstract
The proposed approach is to add a fire-induced structural damage capability to an existing ship survivability simulation, specifically to the Advanced Survivability Assessment Program (ASAP) simulation. ASAP is the most advanced ship survivability simulation in the U.S. Navy. Under development by the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Carderock Division, since 1994, ASAP has evolved into a simulation framework for analyzing a wide array of weapon types, including semi-armor-piercing (SAP) warheads, iron bombs, anti-ship cruise missiles, torpedoes, shaped charges, mines, and so forth. ASAP analyzes numerous damage mechanisms, including air blast, mass detonation of munitions, fragment penetration, shaped charge jet penetration, hull whipping, flooding, fire spread, and smoke spread.
