Acoustic cladding Acoustic cladding rth (Automotive) (OP) 29 Nov 99 09:30 Has anybody been successful in automating the application of acoustic coating to submarine hulls? RE: Acoustic cladding Gator (Industrial) 18 Jul 00 04:42 You might try asking this in sci.military.moderated, but sub guys are pretty secretive.Paul___________________________________________________Web-Based Resource for Process Piping ProfessionalsMailing List: <http://www.egroups.com/group/PipingDesign>Webpage: <http://www.PipingDesign.com> RE: Acoustic cladding Dan76 (Electrical) 18 Dec 00 16:09 As far as I know it's still a manual process.And, Gator, we sub guys prefer the term "silent", as in "Silent Service" :) RE: Acoustic cladding rth (Automotive) (OP) 21 Dec 00 04:07 I am puzzled by the silence. About two years ago Tracor published some details of their work on an automated process on the web. RE: Acoustic cladding Dan76 (Electrical) 21 Dec 00 20:12 Alot of what goes into building a sub is classified, so even the non-sensitive parts of some aspects get put in the same category, ie. all blueprints, manuals, procedures, etc...It's kind of a shotgun approach but the machine that makes the machine that does the sensitive stuff could be something we don't want someone else to get.Basically technology is power, hope that explains a little of the silence. Plus if people aren't sure what is and isn't "secret" they generally fail safe and assume it is.
