Hello Keith.Do we think that because the hull of Titanic was structurally unsound after the break-up that that may have contributed to the possible implosion.
Honestly, I think that the stern section imploded not as violently as in the James Cameron video but I think that it happened. And that when the stirn hit the sea bed, she broke apart into what she looks like now because of the weekend structure from the breakup, and the minor implosion, the decent and the hydraulic downburst effect.
That's just a there tho. Tell me what y'all think!
The fact that a double ottom section was found on the seabed separate and remote from the forward and aft main sections, showes that the hull tore apart before it hit the sea bed.
For any section of the hull to implode, that section must contain trapped air at ambient temp. and pressure.
In all ships, there is a problem of "sweat"- condensation. Consequently, unless a compartment is not affected by sweat it will be constantly ventilated. Since the hull separated on the surface, air would inundate all open compartments. It follows that the only spaces that might - I say might because seals give under pressuer - would have been refrigerated spaces.
