The objectives of the study were to Identify the mission and system criteria for major structural systems for advanced ships establish guidelines for the selection of materials and processes for high performance ships conduct trade studies of candidate materials and fabrication processes to evaluate their cost effectiveness and practicality and, make recommendations for future effort required to fill data voids identified by this study and a plan to accomplish that work. The output of the study includes 1 a list of mission and system criteria that need to be identified prior to the materialfabrication concept selection, 2 a set of guidelines for the selection of materialfabrication concepts applicable to specific mission, system and design criteria, 3 a collection of applicable material and process data, 4 procedures for establishing a fabricability index and a cost index for materials, 5 three trade studies on representative structures, and 6 recommendations for future work.
