Naval Survivability Analysis
In naval ship design, the concept of "Survivability" is defined as reducing the susceptibility of the ship, reducing its vulnerability and increasing its recoverability after being hit. Susceptibility is achieved by reducing the radar cross-sectional area, acoustic and IR signatures. Vulnerability is a function of the defense systems and general layout of the vessel. Recoverability is the measure of the ship's ability to continue the operation after a hit, includes damaged stability and fire counter measures. Advens Engineering continues to work on quantifying the vulnerability calculations and preparing the strength calculations of possible damage scenarios after a hit.
