This is a NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A747083. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: The goal of this thesis is to contribute further to the development of a design tool for the modeling of dynamic progressive flooding in ships. In an earlier thesis, LT Thomas Anderson, USN, modeled a generic, mathematically describe able hull form; in this thesis the work is extended by applying his methods and generating new ones in order to accurately model an actual ship hull form, (the Arleigh Burke (DDG-51)), in a progressive flooding scenario. A secondary goal is to create an organized process, complete with any necessary programs or software, which can be applied to any hull form in the future in order to create a progressive flooding model. These goals contribute to the ultimate goal of creating a viable design tool that will allow the Naval Architect to evaluate the potential of a prototype vessel to withstand damage in a progressive flooding scenario.
