Mechanical design, calculations and points to keep in mind

Hey guys, I’m new here so forgive me if this isn’t the right place. A friend of mine is joining a competition involving designing an underwater ROV. They do not have a background in mechanical design and development so can anyone guide me to resources and guidelines that would help me with this? In terms of calculations and stuff they should focus on.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Nahid,

I recommend the following references (we have them on our engineering shelves and use them regularly for ideas):

Underwater Robotics: Science, Design & Fabrication
The ROV Manual: A User Guide for Remotely Operated Vehicles

We have a few other scattered resources and calculators spread throughout our website and documentation pages. Is there anything specific your team is looking for?
