Structural Analysis & Technical Services

The guidance we provide on the structural design of ships and submarines ensures they’re built to the highest standards of durability, while our evaluation of in-service naval structures helps keep them operational.

QinetiQ’s deep understanding of naval vessels and the use and behaviour of materials in the marine environment underpins our advice on design and through-life issues, assessment of structural integrity and risk, and guidance on repair.
