Abstract
New Canadian warships entering service will not be maintained via refits as per traditional practice, but will be subjected to ongoing maintenance during routine short work periods alongside. This change in practice requires the development of new procedures to ensure structural integrity, as inspection and repair opportunities normally offered during refits will no longer be available. In support of project definition studies for development of new procedures, MIL Systems Engineering Inc. conducted a pilot study fir the Structural Risk assessment Program (STRAP), a computer-based system which would determine the effect of structural damage on ship safety, and thus, operational capability. The report presents a concept for STRAP, demonstrates its feasibility through development and use of a pilot code, presents research and development requirements based upon the results of the feasibilty demonstration, and present a system development plan for STRAP, including estimates of cost, benefit and risk.
