Payload and survivability tradeoffs in the presence of risk
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this thesis research is to find an optimized throughput plan for ship sustainment operations that will assist in minimizing the overall risk of transportation of supplies. Our main goal is to maximize throughput when considering cargo ship size, quantity, speed, range, and risk when traversing through a designated travel area. Data collected from previous theses, analytical equations, and computer modeling programs assist in computing this maximum throughput load. The results of this thesis demonstrate that a thorough awareness and consideration of the survivability of supply vehicles must be analyzed to mitigate increased risk.
