Abstract:

A computer program was developed which could be used to mathematically design a natural shape for underwater inflatable structure. The analytical procedure is intended to predict the contour of a stationary underwater chamber with flexible walls that are subjected only to uniaxial stress counteracting buoyancy. Author
