LONG-TERM GOALS: The ultimate goals are to substantially improve, quantitatively, the U.S. Navy’s mine burial predictive capabilities and to provide a complete data set of mine movement in water phase and mine impact burial for model evaluation. The goals include development of a new mine impact burial model for improving Naval technical decision aids and involvement of NPS students’ (U.S. Naval officers) thesis study for enhancing their combat effectiveness. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of the project are assessment of current Navy’s Impact Burial Prediction Model (IBPM), and reconstruct of IBPM using the advanced hydrodynamic theory. Both efforts are closely connected to the field experiment at Corpus Christi, Texas-Louisiana shelf sponsored by ONR IBPM program. This effort provides guidance for field experiments such as site selection, determination of variables to be measured (e.g., ocean and sediment conditions as well as mine burial depth). On the other hand, data collected from the field experiments will be used to verify the reconstructed IBPM in a more realistic environmental scenario.
