When a ship suffers underwater damage, there is a rapid influx of water, followed by a period of slower progressive flooding. This results in flooding of compartments whose hull boundaries, but not interior bulkheads, are still intact. An existing computer model uses the FORTRAN computer language and formatted input files to model progressive flooding. This thesis uses MATLAB computer language and SIMULINK graphical user interface to provide a modular, expandable progressive flooding design tool.
