DSRV Alvin weight report, 1973
MetadataShow full item record
Weight and stability computations are presented for the research submarine ALVIN following the installation, early in 1973, of the new titanium alloy pressure hull built by the U.S. navy under "Project Titanes." Longitudinal and vertical components of the BG distance are shown for the vehicle in its normal submerged condition, and for a number of emergency conditions. Calculations for pounds per inch immersion and moment to heel one degree also are included. results of the post-refit dockside trials are presented and discussed.
