Propeller & Shafting Symposium Planned

The Society of Naval Architects & Marine Engineers (SNAME) announced its ninth triennial Propeller and Shafting Symposium, scheduled to be held in Virginia Beach, Va., on September 20 and 21, 2000. Held once every three years and organized by the M-16 Panel of SNAME, the first symposium was conceived in 1972 and held in 1975 as a fact-finding forum following an industry-wide rash of propeller problems. Its objective was definition of problems and identification of appropriate solutions. This spirit of inquiry continues today. The last symposium was in 1997. It drew more than 150 attendees to hear 29 technical papers read by experts from around the world. 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.

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 variety of propulsors and shafting systems has added new dimension to these propeller and shafting seminars.
