Abstract:

During the past five Years considerable progress has been made with regard to insight in the structural design and analysis of submarine pressure hulls. particularly as far as stability and plasticity are concerned. In 1991 a design methodology has been developed. This design methodology makes the knowledge and experience available to the designer in the form of design directives for the pressure hull. For validation of the methodology, it is important to compare results from the methodology with experimental results. This report compares the results of analyses for all collapse modes as prescribed by the methodology with experimental results of three aluminium cylinders as tested in Canada.
