Shallow-Draft Bulk

Carrier Study Award

To M. Rosenblatt

The U.S. Department of Com- merce, Maritime Administration, has awarded a $197,362 Research & De- velopment contract to M. Rosenblatt & Son, Inc., naval architects and ma- rine engineers of New York, Wash- ington, D.C., and San Francisco, to assess future opportunities for large shallow-draft bulk carriers in U.S. trade.

The very limited ability of vessels 80,000 dwt or larger, which usually have drafts over 40 feet to enter most

U.S. ports, which have a limiting depth of 40 to 45 feet, coupled with the cost and complexity of transship- ping bulk commodities via offshore terminals, makes the development of very large shallow-draft vessels for liquid and dry bulk cargoes appear to be a possibly attractive alternate.

M. Rosenblatt & Son will assess existing technology for such vessels, analyze the economics and national requirements for such a shipping sys- tem and identify options concerning the development of shallow-draft bulk shipping systems. Consultation by the naval architect with Soros

Associates, Det norske Veritas, Mari- time Overseas Corporation, Robert

Nathan Associates, and Robert W. and Robert C. Morrell is contem- plated.

Naval Hydrodynamics

Symposium To Be Held

At M.I.T. June 24-28

The Tenth Naval Hydrodynamics

Symposium will be held June 24-28, 1974 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass.

This internationally recognized symposium has been held biennial- ly since 1956, alternately in this country and abroad. This year, the symposium is being sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard and by

M.I.T., in addition to the tradition- al sponsorship of the U.S. Navy

Office of Naval Research. In keep- ing with the U.S. Coast Guard sponsorship, the dual theme of the symposium is (1) Hydrodynamics

Problems Associated with Safety at

Sea, and (2) Fundamental Problems in Naval Hydrodynamics.

An outstanding technical and so- cial program has 'been planned for registrants and guests. Complete details of the symposium and reser- vation forms are available by writ- ing to Prof. Philip Mandel, M.I.T.,

Room 5-325, 77 Massachusetts Ave- nue, Cambridge, Mass. 02139.
