Under this task we have looked at the engineering criteria specifications and requirements and the design and fabrication attributes for cost reduction and producibility and we have framed up an integrated set of procedures to conduct engineering analyses and verification of the standards to be proposed later in the project. This sub-task report describes and outlines this engineering methodology. This section also elaborates the loading criteria failure criteria and allowable limits to be used in the standards development calculations. Standard equipment foundations are categorized into 27 representative foundation designs 18 standard method mounts Spool mounts and Stud Mounts as described under sub-task 4.A. The Shipboard Modular Arrangement Reconfiguration Technology SMART Systems from Affordability Through Commonality ATC for equipment foundation system will also be evaluated and incorporated as required. The SMART system utilizes a 2-dimensional installation plane incorporating components like parallel tracks foundation adapters and foundation sub-assemblies spread over the area of interest. This provides the equipment installer with the flexibility to install equipment at any orientation and desired location in the area of interest without needing to design and integrate the foundations with the ship structures. The area of interest can be either decks or bulkheads. Analysis of the foundation types will be conducted for only certain candidate foundation types. These candidate foundation types are such that they or variations of them will represent all of the standard foundation types mentioned above. During the course of development of the standards a parametric analysis approach to foundation design will be adopted and used.
