dc.description.abstractThe Navy's primary analysis of damage control and stability to date has been under static conditions. Dynamic effects, such as progressive flooding, and the dynamic damage control procedures, such as hole patching and dewatering, have not been included in present design requirements. The goal of this thesis is to develop and test a stand-alone progressive flooding model. This model can be used to evaluate the transient and steady state characteristics of shipboard progressive flooding. Several improvements over previous studies are introduced and their effects are assessed. A sensitivity analysis study is performed through a systematic series of runs for a variety of hull forms. These results can be used to aid engineers of future ship designs in the use of damage control techniques and parametersen_US
