ATA Engineering’s computational analysis methods enable prediction of post-damage kinematic operation of critical shipboard mechanisms – specifically, whether submarine hatches, scuttles, and watertight doors will still operate after experiencing shock damage. ATA is an employee-owned engineering services company providing solutions in the design, analysis, and testing of complex mechanical products. We developed the technology to aid design of future submarines (e.g., OHIO Replacement Class) and qualification of equipment for existing ships by reducing the reliance on costly underwater explosion (UNDEX) testing. ATA’s approach leverages a commercially available finite element analysis (FEA) tool, Abaqus, and utilizes machine learning techniques for efficiently evaluating a large number of possible damage permutations. Current efforts involve validation through correlation with laboratory experiments. ATA seeks opportunities to support our customers’ shock qualification efforts.
