Abstract : A discussion of installed safeguards to prevent or minimize flooding is followed by explanation of the consequences of a submarine flooding casualty and the measures to be used to effect submarine recovery from flooding. The methods used to predict submarine trajectories are briefly presented, with special application to investigations of flooding. The appendices contain a more detailed discussion of predictions and an example. The consequences of control system malfunctioning and the reasons for selecting stern planes jams for investigating are outlined. Finally, methods for coping with a stern plane jam are presented.
