Are you sure that the trawler in question wasn't this one, if so you'll see that you are a little out on the factsETME_submariner said:
You have not seen a brit sub going through the bottom of a trawler, that honour belongs to the USS GREENEVILLE (as seen on the other reply). If a brit sub has gone through a trawler it will not be on a video clip, I can assure you. A T Boat had an incident with a trawler (ANTARES) a few years ago and resulted in a rather well publicised court martial.ETME_submariner said:
All is fine untill it reaches "crush depth" then it will implode like a crushed tin can!Do a google for Thresher,there are some pics of it showing crush damage.dunkers said:
All the UK crush trials indicated that at 'crush' there was a single point of hull failure, typically the for'd torpedo loading hatch on for example and S boat.andym said:All is fine untill it reaches "crush depth" then it will implode like a crushed tin can!Do a google for Thresher,there are some pics of it showing crush damage.dunkers said:
Well in my day which was a few years ago, the principle was blow everything get up angle on and full ahead in the power mode you were in.bigbaddog said:Surfacing in emergency on UK s/m's is not generally as dramatic
as that portrayed by our American bretheren! I experienced quite a
few of 'em and the angle/speed was never virtually straight up!
(looks good though...) It would probably cause a few broken
limbs among the crew if they were not properly prepared for it and
I would imagine quite a bit of stuff careering around the inside of the
boat - which would'nt help matters either. If it was necessary to
get topside in a rush then I would be all for it....but in comparison
to an Emergency Surface for Trouser Crapping delight...there's
nothing more 'orrible than a nuke (V/T boat) on the surface, plodding
along in a Storm Force 10!. You know its ferkin' ruffers when the boat
is rolling and rocking at Periscope Depth....
"D'you hear there - the submarine is about to run shut down...."
(Ring any bells?)
So basically don't go near the danger depth? :shock:Nutty said:Dunkersdunkers said:
What happens when you reach crush depth, is that some point of the pressure hull implodes into the boat. As Maxi says on trials conducted to date the weak spot appears to be the torpedo loading hatch. Of course that is the largest opening in the pressure hull so it comes as no surprise.
At that point and depth the water enters so fast, not like the DC teacher used to train RN personal. The question now is only do I drown, am I crushed to death by the sudden huge increase in pressure or do I burn to death by the rapid increase in temperature as the air is compressed, i.e. like bike pump gets hot. What ever you are brown bread.
A, P or O boat had a safe diving depth when new of about 900 feet. could possibly have made it down to about 1500 feet before collapso-mundo. Crush depth of Nukes I have no idea. A Russian Alpha Class is supose to have a diving depth of 3000 metres.
