Abstract : The design criteria for underwater shells are discussed, and the basic shell designs are evaluated on the basis of these criteria. Internally pressurized shells and shell-pressurization methods are also discussed. It is recommended that research be directed toward development of higher-strength materials and improved fabrication methods. It is also recommended that fluids of lower compression and density be developed for shell pressurization. (Author-PL).
