VIRGINIA BEACH — MAY 26-27 The third in a series of international symposia on ship propellers that have been attracting wide attention in the marine engineering community in recent years will be presented on May 26- 27, 1981, at the Cavalier Hotel, Virginia Beach, Va. Titled Propellers '81, the meeting is being presented by the Technical and Research Program of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers in cooperation with the Hampton Roads Section.
A total of 24 papers on various aspects of marine propellers and related p r o p u l s i o n components are scheduled for delivery at the symposium, the authors representing a cross section of expertise from the United States and Europe.
Propellers '81 is intended to: • Encourage vitally needed research efforts through the presentation and publication of the most recent developments in hydrodynamic theories of propeller design and wake interaction, and present the most up-to-date information available on the problem of propeller wake-induced vibration.
• Provide a forum for the discussion of the special problems associated with the operation of fixed- and variable-pitch propellers in ice, with an in-depth study of Ice Class Rules as they pertain to propeller design parameters.
• Disseminate propeller design information for a wide range of small craft.
• Give an opportunity for a free exchange of views between members of the marine community as to the present state of p r o p e l l e r design, performance, maintenance procedures, and the economic gains resulting from them.
Robert P. Giblon, chairman of the Ships' Machinery Committee, is general chairman of Propellers '81; Andrew A. Szvpula is chairman of the Technical Committee, which is made up of the members of Panel M-16 (Modernization of Propulsion S h a f t Systems) of SNAME.
A banquet will be held on Tuesday, May 26, at 7:00 pm. The principal speaker will be John J.
Nachtsheim (FL '54), 33rd president of the Society, 1981-82. At the time of his election, he was assistant administrator for shipbuilding and ship operations, Maritime Administration. In December 1980 Mr. Nachtsheim assumed the position of executive director, Maritime T r a n s p o r t a t i o n Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences.
