Abstract : The requirements for evaluating alternative conceptual submarine designs are presented. The morphology of a conceptual design evaluation tool is established and its basic components developed. Digital computer programs are used to facilitate analysis of design parameters. Representative parameters required by the design tool are determined for an existing submarine. A review of current research in the major areas of submarine design is presented. The effects of several of these technological advances are predicted for the example vessel through use of the design tool. (Author)
