Abstract:

This thesis develops the relationship between the three major attributes of a modern warship staying power, offensive power, and defensive power. Based on W. Hughes Salvo Model, we show that there is an inverse linear relationship between a ships staying power and its defensive power and a nonlinear relationship between its staying power and its offensive power. Using the embellishments that E. Hatzopoulos added regarding scouting effectiveness and alertness, we also compare the results for survivability with A. Lalis obtained from the Hatzopoulos model using scouting and alertness. We examine survivability using defensive power or equivalently staying power, because of their linear relationship and also offensive power.
