Aerospace/Marine Technology Compared In New Book Available From SNAME
The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers recently announced the availability of the book "Aerospace Technology and the Marine Transport Industry." The hardbound book is the carefully edited result of a workshop-conference between the two disciplines, held in Williamsburg, Va., December 1-3, 1978. The meeting was cosponsored by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, with the support of the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Representatives of the institutions met at the workshop-conference to compare aerospace technology with maritime technology.
Seven panels of experts met with the goal of identifying any aerospace technology that might present economically acceptable solutions to maritime technical advancement.
The workshop, structured by a steering committee chaired by Capt. Richards T.
Miller, USN (ret.), SNAME's vice president- Technical and Research, and cochaired by Dr. H. Norman Abramson for AIAA, addressed the subjects of (1) Traffic Control, (2) Ship Control, (3) Weather Ocean Surface Conditions, (4) Bulk Cargoes of Particular Hazard, (5) Structures, Materials and Fabrications, (6) Stress Analysis, Monitoring, and Inspection During Fleet Operations, and (7) Containerized Cargo Handling and Control.
Recommendations in the seven areas were developed by the workshop's 135 participants, showing that even though some aerospace techniques are already well established in the marine industry, there is some technology developed from the space program that could be investigated for use by marine researchers.
The book begins with a Summary of Findings, Conclusions and Recommendations; continues with a transcript of the keynote address, and then delves into the detailed panel reports.
Heading the panels from the marine side were Capt. Warren Leback, C. Lincoln Crane, Dr. Glenn Flittner, Rear Adm. W.M. Benkert, USCG (ret.), William Brayton, Stanley Stiansen and David B. Letteney.
The hardbound illustrated book "Aerospace Technology and Marine Transport," 146 pages, is available in a limited quantity from the Society at $13.50 per copy to SNAME members if payment accompanies the order, list price $15.
