This research applies the principles of naval architecture and mechanical engineering to the early-stage design of cooling systems on surface warships. The primary research of objective is to build a Cooling System Design Tool (CSDT) which can rapidly generate system visualizations, compute weight, dimensions and cost of system components, and analyze survivability characteristics of cooling systems onboard a warship. We demonstrate the efficacy of this tool by applying it to analyze several pertinent examples on variations of a notional destroyer-sized vessel.
