Ship Systems and Equipment - Hydraulic System Design Criteria for Marine Vehicles
The marine environment differs greatly from other environments in which hydraulics are used. This Recommended Practice provides hydraulic design considerations and criteria for the marine environment and is applicable to commercial vessels, military ships, and submersible vehicles. This document may be used for manned and un-manned vehicles.
Rationale: Provide essentail information for hydraulic system design requirements for adjustment to current operating conditions of shipboard applications not captured in existing document: pump suction strainer requirements and design considerations.
