SNAME Issues Call For Technical Papers For 'Propellers 78'

The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers has announced that a second symposium on propellers is being planned by Panel M-16 (Modernization of Propulsion Shaft System) of the Society's Technical and Research Program. The symposium is planned for either June 7 and 8, 1978, or June 14 and 15, 1978, with the earlier date being preferred, in the Newport News/Norfolk, Va., area under the auspices of the Hampton Roads Section of the Society.

In order to develop the program and detailed planning, the Society has issued a call for papers.

Papers on the following subjects are particularly desired, but other related topics are not excluded: propeller strength, analytical procedures, experimental data and correlation of design and experience as these subjects apply to fixed-pitch propellers, controllable- pitch propellers, contrarotating propellers, overlapping propellers, shrouded propellers, highly skewed propellers, and cycloidal propellers; metallurgical properties; failure criteria and economic costs, and construction, maintenance and repair.

Anyone interested in preparing a paper should notify the Society at 74 Trinity Place, New York, N.Y. 10006, by June 1, 1977. Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their paper by July 1, 1977. A draft of the complete paper by October 1, 1977, will be required.
