O'Sullivan, James Francis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1973-09)Surface recovery of small submersibles could be made safer for personnel and hardware with the installation on the submersible of an inflatable, pneumatic bumper which acts also as main surface buoyancy. Tne use of such ...
Experimental stress analysis of model of emergency forebody release device used in deep diving research submarines Alvin, Sea Cliff and Turtle Sharp, Arnold G.; Sullivan, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-08)Tests were conducted on a full-scale model of the emergency forebody release used in the deep-diving submarines ALVIN, SEA CLIFF and TURTLE. The model was machined from metal to the same dimensional tolerances as the ...
