Annoucement from Monday, July 9, 2018
Dear Valued SSC Members and Partners,
I am excited to announce the SECOND Ship Structure Committee project for 2018! The committee is looking for interested parties to contribute their expertise and time by serving on the Project Technical Committee (PTC). The PTC provides expert advice and guidance to the researcher, evaluating the project plan, progress reports, and final report. Comments from PTC members directly influence the progression of the project and are of great value to the researchers. If you are interested in participating as a PTC member, please contact me no later than August 3, 2018. If you are interested in leading the PTC as its Chair, please let me know that also.
The project is titled "Guide for Application: FEA in Design and Assessment of Ship Structures". For more information, the initial project idea submission can be found on the SSC website. This project was originally selected by the committee in 2012. In short, this project is an update to the existing report SSC-387. The contractor will be determined using USCG procurement procedures; additional details on the bidding process will be announced in a later bulletin.
Please contact me with any questions.
Thank you for your support of the Ship Structure Committee!
Jonathan Duffett, LT, USCG
