THE FFG-7 FRIGATE AN APPLICATION OF THE DESIGN-TO-COST CONCEPT

This thesis is the application of the concept of design-to-cost to the project of the FFG frigates. Using the available data relative to the major escort programs since 1950, a curve of force effectiveness vs. number of ships, similar to that presented by Vice Admiral Price in his congressional testimony on design of the patrol-frigate or FFG-7, was constructed and the results discussed.
