SNAME 1991 Annual Meeting & 1 Oth Annual Internation al Maritime Exposition

New York, New York, November 13-16 One of the most import a n t marine shows in the U.S., the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engin e e r s (SNAME) Annual Meeting and International Maritime Exposition will holdits 1991 conference in New York City from November 13-16. The three-day event will be held at the newly renovated New York Hilton Hotel.

The show returns to New York following last year's presentation in San Francisco. Last year the show was held outside New York for the first time in its history. Attendance and the number of exhibitors was down slightly last year, due in part to the limited amount of exhibition space at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at the Embarcadero Center in San Francisco. This year, the number of exhibiting companies is in excess of 100 and attendance is expected to be in the area of 2,000, according to a society spokesman. The exhibition area will be located in the new Americas Halls facility on the hotel's third and fourth floors.

The 1991 International Maritime Exposition marks the 10th anniversary of the joining of the exhibition with the annual meeting. Located in Americas Hall I and II, the exposition will be showcasing over 100 companies providing an excellent forum to meet marine industry professionals.

Exhibitors from Europe and North America will display marine products and services including diesel engine sales and repair, ship and boat construction, maintenance and repair, navigation and communication technology, valves and piping, lifesaving equipment, controls and control systems, deck machinery and cargo-handling equipment and vessel design and engineering services.

The technical program will once again run concurrently with the exposition.

The papers committee, under the direction of chairman J a c k W. Abbott, has selected 15 papers covering a diversified array of subject matters to comprise the technical program scheduled for Thursday, November 14, and Friday, November 15.

The first two papers presented in the Trianon Ballroom on Thursday morning, November 14, will focus on resistance and powering. The two papers presented in parallel in the Mercury Ballroom will be on ship design of submersibles and a study comparing U.S. and U.K. frigate designs.

Thursday afternoon, papers focusing on ship performance and maneuverability will be presented in the Trianon Ballroom, while in parallel, papers in the Mercury Ballroom will examine icebreaker performance prediction and a progress report on Tension Leg Platforms.

On Friday morning, six papers will be presented in all. The three papers in the Trianon Ballroom will cover waves and motion, while three miscellaneous papers concurrently presented in Mercury Ballroom address the topics of design and construction of a floating accommodation facility for aircraft carriers, design curves for specially orthotropic laminated plates, and axial and torsional vibration calculations on longstroke diesel engines.

On Friday afternoon, one paper of particular note will be presented.

"The Inadequacies of the Current Approach to Minimizing Oil Outflow from Damaged Tankers—A Proposed Alternative" by Jeremy Hooks advances the author's contention of the inadequacies of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) formula for the protective location of segregated ballast tanks. Mr. Hooks favors an alternative arrangement with an intermediate deck at approximately mid depth in conjunction with double sides.

This year's annual Business Session will immediately follow the President's Luncheon. The agenda for this meeting will include a report on the elections that took place at the council meeting on Wednesday, November 13.

At noon, prior to the President's Luncheon in the East Ballroom on Thursday, November 14, a general reception will be held in the foyer of the East Ballroom.
