Lärandemål

The course aims at giving basic understanding, knowledge and skills in design and operation of underwater vessels (UV). The course will treat basic conditions, performance issues, subsystems and integrated systems of both small and large vessels.

After the course you will be able to:

  • Define and explain the fundamental mechanics of UV,
  • Define and describe some basic types of UV,
  • In a UV development process consider system architecture and performance in relation to stakeholder expectations and system requirements,
  • Solve and judge basic power/energy need, range and performance calculations of UV,
  • Define and explain fundamental control systems aspects for UVs,
  • Solve and judge the planning, execution and evaluation of a UV mission at sea,
  • Design a conceptual UV for a specific mission,
  • Judge and argue for/against various design choices to assess the optimality of an UV, also considering sustainability and environmental aspects.

Kursens huvudsakliga innehåll

The course is problem based, where you develop towards the learning objectives by working with requirements, design, analysis, synthesis, and system evaluation for a particular underwater system. The design work is supported by a number of seminars, which treat the basic principles of the field in general and some detailed aspects in particular. The seminars are based on a number of articles, standards and other literature according to the literature list below and very importantly - discussions around the progress of your design work. In the final seminar the different designs are presented, compared and evaluated. The design assignment and details of what you are expected to do and deliver are specified in a separate document.

Behörighet

The course is aimed at students in the first or second year at a Masters program in engineering. Bachelor of engineering with working knowledge in Matlab, mechanics, algebra and calculus is required.

Litteratur

Kurshäfte samt vetenskapliga artiklar som delas ut vid under kursen.

Examination
