In 2006 we worked with Triton Submarines, based in the USA, on the analysis of their Triton 1000/2 model.
The work included analysis of the main acryllic sphere and hatch sealing system, employing non-linear contact analysis to discern the collpase dive pressure for demonstrating code compliance.
Further work was undertaken on the composite ballast tanks to determine their resistance to side impact loads.
