The Submarine

The current submarine design started in the fall of 2009, with a team made of a few veterans and many fresh faces. The design has progressed, taking advantage of cutting edge engineering design tools such as Solidworks Cosmos and Star CCM+ to use virtual prototypes before constructing the major parts.

Below are the current projects the team is undertaking:

Current Projects:

New Hull
  • New hull form designed for the team as part of a 4th year Capstone project
  • Design had undergone CFD analysis, stress analysis, and model testing in the UBC wind tunnel
  • Currently working to have the plug cut via a CNC foam cutter
Gear Box
  • Complete redesign and overhaul of the contra-rotating gear box system
