The effect of staying power on offensive and defensive power of a modern warship
Hughes, Wayne P.
MetadataShow full item record
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 ship's 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.
