Relative Protection Against Flooding in Mauretania and Titanic.

Relative Protection Against Flooding in Mauretania and Titanic. A rupture of the shell plating of the Titanic admitted water to large compartments extending clear across the ship. In the Mauretania, the inflow would be checked by packed coal and confined to small bunker compartments. The Mauretania was built to Navy requirements, and this construction was required to prevent sinking by a torpedo, should she be taken over as an auxiliary cruiser. It Is questionable if the berg which struck the Titanic would have sunk the Mauretania. Scientific American (11 May 1912) p. 417b. GGA Image ID # 10a5ab9679
