MORE DETAILS:
MKPOD1 was designed and tested to withstand impact loads, strong water waves and wind loads, collapsing compression (force) loads and pressure (fluid) loads, using advanced finite element analysis (FEA) - structural and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and real scale tests. The internal aluminum alloy structure combined with the external composite shield, were specifically designed for high strength but low weight.
