Abstract:

A study was made to determine what, if any, further applied research and exploratory development are required prior to development of a full-scale, manned plastic-clad glass capsule as part of a deep submersible. The theoretical advantages are numerous and the available experimental information is encouraging however, more tests on larger-scale models and more fundamental engineering information on glass properties is required to permit design with confidence.
