What happens if a sailor dies on a submarine?

What happens if a sailor dies on a submarine?

If the deceased died on land or has been returned to shore after death, the remains may be brought aboard either in a coffin or in an urn after cremation. The ceremony is performed while the ship is deployed, and consequently civilians are not allowed to be present.

Are submarines safer than ships?

The underwater environment is a dangerous one. Submarines face many perils of the deep. Even a small fire or gas leak inside a submerged submarine can have catastrophic consequences. A collision with another vessel or grounding may be much more serious for a submarine than for a surface ship.

Why do submarines not get crushed?

Air (or gas) is very compressible, which means as pressure increases, its volume decreases greatly. Because submarines are made of metal, and metal can only withstand a certain amount of pressure before buckling or collapsing, the strength of the metal and the design of the sub determines its ultimate depth limit.

Could a submarine survive a torpedo hit?

Short answer, no. Long answer, even if you could outmaneuver one for a few minutes, it would eventually get you because torpedos are higher speed than any submarine in service presently.

How many submarines have gone down?

Nine nuclear submarines have sunk, either by accident or scuttling. The Soviet Navy has lost five (one of which sank twice), the Russian Navy two, and the United States Navy (USN) two.

How deep can US subs go?

It’s generally accepted that the maximum depth (depth of implosion or collapse) is about 1.5 or 2 times deeper. The latest open literature says that a US Los Angeles-class test depth is 450m (1,500 ft), suggesting a maximum depth of 675–900m (2,250–3,000 ft).

What happens if a submarine goes too deep?

Originally Answered: What happens when a submarine goes too deep? The pressure outside of the pressure hull overcomes the compression strength of the metal hull and suffer a catastrophic hull breach/collapse and sinks to the bottom.

Could a torpedo sink a cruise ship?

The answer is of course, that one torpedo can sink a ship regardless of her size. Nevertheless, there have been cases when a torpedo caused disastrous damage but the ship remained afloat. On April 13, 1940, British and German destroyers met in a duel during the course of a naval battle near Narvik.
