Abstract:

The objective of this research was to provide the Office of Naval Research ONR with an independent evaluation of the structural adequacy of Lockheeds SLICE hull design. SLICE is an offshoot of the SWATH ship technology, with four lower hulls instead of the SWATHs twin hulls. An advanced finite element code was used in the dynamic and static analysis of the SLICEs unique hull form. This thesis demonstrates the practical value of utilizing finite element modeling as a tool in modern ship design. MM
