As part of a consultative support program for DSSP, the Ocean Materials Criteria Branch of NRL has been studying methods of improving the strength, reliability, and buoyancy of flotation materials. This program has primarily taken the form of studies, from the geometrical point of view, of improved methods of packing spherical buoyant material to produce a greater net buoyancy. This report presents these improved methods of packing, coupled with a brief discussion of the feasibility of nonresinous buoyancy systems. Author
