Abstract : This patent discusses a method and system for experimentally determining response characteristics and strength capacity fo submerged hull structures subjected to underwater explosion. This method and system allows testing in relatively shallow water, near the shore and in close vicinity of data recording and process equipment. Moreover, the test item is more accessible for inspection and modification/s, as necessary. This method and system also allow a more controlled environment independent of waves and weather.
