D e l a w a r e V a l l e y ASNE Discusses Computer M o d e l i n g And Ship Performance

A recent meeting of the Delaware Valley Chapter, American Society of Naval Engineers, wras held at the Officers Club, U.S.

Naval Base, Philadelphia, Pa.

The t e c h n i c a l s e s s i o n was opened by meeting coordinator Lt. Comdr. C.E. Jones, Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, who introduced Comdr. J.S. Smith, Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, author of the evening's paper that was entitled "Computer Modeling and Ship Performance." The author traced the development of modeling techniques to simulate combat system performance in an installed shipboard environment. The d e v e l o p m e nt started in 1972, and has expanded in capability to the point where performance-oriented, topside design synthesis can be accomplished using real time and CRT interfaces.

Commander Smith was the branch head of NAVSEC 6174 when development began, and has maintained his interest in this vital combatant ship design tool through the years.

Capt. Ray Pierce, chairman of the Delaware Valley Chapter, presented Commander Smith with a Certificate of Appreciation, and announced that Commander Smith has been promoted and is leaving the Philadelphia area for reassignment in the Washington, D.C.
