Ocean Science Exhibit Center
15 School Street

SCIENCE MADE PUBLIC – During July and August, WHOI’s Ocean Science Exhibit Center and Information Office at WHOI sponsor a series of public talks by WHOI scientists and engineers designed for a lay audience. Everyone is welcome to attend.

How to Sink a Boat: The Ocean Engineering BehindAlvinand Other Deep-sea Manned Vehicles
Bruce Strickrott, AlvinManager, Operational Scientific Services

Alvin and other
deep-sea manned submersibles are complex machines with high-tech systems. But
the principles of diving a deep-submergence vehicle are based on the
fundamentals of physics, hydrodynamics, and engineering. This presentation
includes a brief history of submarine systems (1600s through 1900s) and lessons
on the basic concepts that take Alvin
and other deep-sea manned vehicles safely to and from the seafloor.
