TRADE-OFF STUDY FOR MATERIALS AND FABRICATION PROCESSES FOR ADVANCED HIGH PERFORMANCE SHIP APPLICATIONS. VOLUME I

The objectives of the study were to: Identify the mission and system criteria for major structural systems for advanced ships; establish guidelines for the selection of materials and processes for high performance ships; conduct trade studies of candidate materials and fabrication processes to evaluate their cost effectiveness and practicality; and, make recommendations for future effort required to fill data voids identified by this study and a plan to accomplish that work. The output of the study includes (1) a list of mission and system criteria that need to be identified prior to the material/fabrication concept selection, (2) a set of guidelines for the selection of material/fabrication concepts applicable to specific mission, system and design criteria, (3) a collection of applicable material and process data, (4) procedures for establishing a fabricability index and a cost index for materials, (5) three trade studies on representative structures, and (6) recommendations for future work.
