SNAME New York Section Honors William J. Dormari

A recent meeting of the New York Metropolitan Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers held at the Whitehall Club in New York City featured a paper titled "Maneuvering Considerations in the Design Ship Spiral," by John C.

Daidola and Garmia Daniel. The paper surveyed the use of available data from published literature in conjunction with accepted analytical approaches as a tool to enable the naval architect to predict maneuverability of a vessel at the design stage.

The authors evaluated the applicability of such information gathering techniques to the basic design effort. An approach to a quantitative measure of maneuverability was discussed in these contexts, with recommendations as to what can be done to enhance a naval architect's ability to predict maneuverability of vessels in the design stage.

William J. Dorman, a 46-year member of the Society, was the honored guest at this meeting.

An active member of SNAME, Mr. Dorman is a past member of Council and past chairman of the Ship Technical Operations Committee and the Applications Committee.

A recipient of the prestigious Vice Admiral E.L. Cochrane Award from the Society, Mr. Dorman's impressive career included work with J.J. Hcinry Company, American Export Lines, Bureau Veritas, and the American Bureau of Shipping.
