The goal of this thesis is to contribute further to the development of a design tool for the modeling of dynamic progressive flooding in ships. In an earlier thesis, LT Thomas Anderson, USN, modeled a generic, mathematically describe able hull form; in this thesis the work is extended by applying his methods and generating new ones in order to accurately model an actual ship hull form, (the Arleigh Burke (DDG-51)), in a progressive flooding scenario. A secondary goal is to create an organized process, complete with any necessary programs or software, which can be applied to any hull form in the future in order to create a progressive flooding model. These goals contribute to the ultimate goal of creating a viable design tool that will allow the Naval Architect to evaluate the potential of a prototype vessel to withstand damage in a progressive flooding scenario.
