Though a typical diesel electric submarine would have more than 150 systems in all, lets take a look on the primary systems used on-board a naval submarine.
Approximately 40% of the focus and priority in the entire submarine design process is given to its structural design. The full process takes up majority of the time, as it is not only related to strength factors of submarine, but also to a nexus of functional aspects that are interrelated to it.
Though some of the tanks used in a submarine are similar to that used on surface ships, most of them are different and unique to the nature of operation of a submarine, which makes it an important aspect to be studied in detail.
Learn about the important aspects of submarine stability and the principles necessary to understand how a submarine works in the article inside.
In this first part of the submarine design series, we will learn about the design of naval submarines, familiarising ourselves with the design and functionalities of a submarine, its parts, general arrangement, structural design and arrangement, stability of a submarine, the systems used in a submarine, etc.

We are familiar with the form of ship propeller, but have we ever contemplated upon their shape, appearance and typical geometry? Let’s find out inside the article.
Design of container ships depends on type of cargo, the ports on route, the functionality of the ship, and also the economic trends in the market. Lets take a look at the important aspects considered for container ship design.
