E A Brustolon: 1535. Installation of Lead Ballast on Naval Submarines. 1983.



With the continuing increase in cost and size of naval submarines, any area where construction
can be accomplished more efficiently should be explored. As prosaic an item as lead ballast
installation is an area where improvements can be made. For the most part, ballast installation
has not changed since the fleet type boats of World War II. It is essentially a haphazard procedure;
particularly with the first ship of a class.
This paper will discuss some techniques for improving lead ballast installation in naval submarines.
