MECH ENG 7042EX - Introduction to Submarine Design

External - Semester 1 - 2021

Introduction to submarine design gives the student an understanding of the basic principles of submarine design in a complex modern multi-platform system. The course gives a general introduction to the operational requirements for submarines and what architecture and technologies can deliver the capability. Areas covered are the submarine design and development process and all its phases: the different design philosophies from all countries since WWII, the platform and combat systems, pressure hull design considerations, but also how to balance a submarine design (eg weight and buoyancy relations, overall submarine performance,). How to ensure sea worthiness for submarines: fit for purpose, safe to operate and environmentally compliant. Students will deliver a submarine concept design project using the software Paramarine.
