Propeller & Shafting Symposium Set For September

SNAME announced its ninth triennial Propeller and Shafting Symposium. The two-day event is scheduled to be held at the Cavalier Hotel, Virginia Beach, Va.

on September 20 and 21, 2000. The symposium is held once every three years and is organized by the M-16 Panel of SNAME. The last symposium was in 1997, and it drew more than 150 attendees who heard 29 technical papers from experts around the world, thus bringing the total of papers read and discussed over the years to 169. In all, 21 countries have contributed. These include countries from the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and the Orient and Soviet Block nations, even before Soviet reassimilation into global culture.

The M-16 Panel of SNAME is dedicated to gathering and disseminating information on propulsion shafting and was founded in 1960 as part of the society's Technical and Research Program.

Over the years, the panel's mission has evolved to include techniques necessary for selection, design, installation, alignment and maintenance of all shipboard components that comprise and support a shafting system. These include the shaft(s), couplings, bearings, and the propulsors themselves. The panel's scope of activity does not include engines and gears, but the bewildering variety of propulsors and shafting systems seen in contemporary vessel design has added new dimension to these propeller and shafting seminars. Those interested in attending should contact: Mr. Jerry Havel at: tel: (212) 839-5095; fax: (212) [email protected]
