QinetiQ has assessed the structural design of a multinational submarine rescue platform to determine how the system responds to fatigue and fracture problems.
The Submarine Rescue System is built for NATO allies such as France, Norway and the U.K. and has undergone a stress-life fatigue analysis by QinetiQ, the company said Monday.
Lloyds Register and the British defense ministry worked to validate findings from QinetiQ’s mechanical tests.
Vittorio Vagliani, QinetiQ’s head of structures and survivability, said the company offers testing and technical services for surface vessels and submersible vehicles.
The company has been performing finite element modelling, structural integrity and engineering assessments for public and private maritime customers over the past two decades.
