An award winning innovative tool
One of the most important design requirements when designing a submarine is the attainment of neutral buoyancy. To evaluate the buoyancy of a submarine design, it is extremely important to make a reliable estimate of the weight and volume of a design. Nevesbu developed the Volume Estimation Tool in order to determine quickly at an early stage of the design process a suitable starting point for the main dimensions, volume and sub-volumes of a diesel-electric submarine. The tool is modular and flexibly structured, meaning it can be applied to provide insight into the impact of other arising design issues.
