Yes you are right about that. Other ordnance also have an implosion effect in the destructive chain of events. Like the 2nd and 3rd gen nukes it all takes place in micro or milliseconds so you don't see it but its there. Thermobaric weapons with the nickname vacuum bombs is one example. But straying off topic here sort of. I don't believe the stern imploded in the conventional sense. She was just ripped and smashed apart mostly from gravity acting on her and the components inside her. And some fluid dynamics tearing stuff apart on her way to the bottom.Only some nuclear bombs. They're made to first implode and compress a plutonium core to produce a nuclear explosion.
Agreed. But the forces involved in fluid dynamics tearing things apart are quite the opposite of implosion.I don't believe the stern imploded in the conventional sense.

No argument there. Somewhere else in this thread or another one I said there might have been some small implosions like canned goods implodeing or maybe a sealed up junction box/wiring trunk ect. But not the stern section itself. There was just to much damage from her ripping apart to have any sealed major compartments. Plus she wasn't built like a submarine. Someone here could could give you better answer I'm sure but above E-deck or so I dont thik you could seal her up even if you wanted to. At least not to the extent that any water pressure at all wouldn't breech her spaces. But I would be happy to be corrected on that if I'm wrong.Agreed.

Agree. I liked his movie but he did get some things wrong. Some he even admitted to and later said at least in an around about way he wished didn't put them in. But there are some things he put in that were total fiction that I did like so its all good taken with a grain of salt.Unmittigated nonsense, but makes a good movie. James Cameron is not a sub-sea engineer.
I agree that things like canned goods might have been crushed and perhaps sealed hollow boxes etc might have imploded due to water pressure during the sinking. But even those had to be water tight to start with and remained so till the water pressure outside rose enough to cause the implosion. Otherwise, increasing water pressure would also facilitate seepage into hollow cavities etc and if that happened, implosion would not occur.I said there might have been some small implosions like canned goods imploding or maybe a sealed up junction box/wiring trunk ect.
and the area of the second class dining room must not only imploded with water pressure but also been a pathway for escaping air forced up by incoming water to have resulted in such damage to occur ,
Looking at the ships drawings there were a lot of refrigerated rooms on G deck and the Orlop deck that by their design would have been air tight if not water tight that could have imploded compromising the internal ships structure in doing so , also releasing air that caused air pockets leading to cause more "mini " implosions as the water pressure increased with depth , i think quite a maelstrom of things going on at once in those areas of the ship.To have imploded, it needed to have been a sealed volume. To be a pathway for escaping air, it had to be open. You can't have it both ways.
Definitely. But that process would not cause an implosion. Bit of an explosive effect perhaps if the air was being forced out very rapidly, but definitely not an implosion.I'm sure there was all manner of destructive hell going on down there as water rapidly flooded in and air was rapidly forced out
