Paper Title: Adressing Localized Assault Loads in Composite Craft Design

Summary

This paper addresses the design of composite craft with respect to non-hydromechanic, local loads not explicitly covered in the basic design standards. The primary aim of this paper is to prompt a discussion on these localized assault loads and the associated robustness issue for composite craft. A background and review of craft robustness and resistance to these types of loads is presented to provide a basis for a more nuanced discussion on inherent differences between different material concepts. Through a literature review and interviews with designers and operators different opinions on what is regarded as robust craft and why are identified. Further, a discussion on how progress can be made with respect to designing more efficient craft out of composites, based on the outlining of a possible design approach, is presented.
