Announcement from December 20, 2018:
Dear Valued SSC Members, Partners, and Liaisons:
The Ship Structure Committee (SSC) is pleased to announce the beginning of the 2019 Project Year!
We are looking for your insightful ideas and enthusiasm toward a successful year of improving the safety of life at sea through ship structures related research. By February 22, 2019, the SSC is seeking research ideas which fall within these four focus areas:
- Structural Monitoring, Longevity, and Lifetime Extension
- Arctic Construction, Operations, Technologies, and Effects
- Novel Materials and Manufacturing
- SSC Follow-Up Report
More detail on the focus areas, as well as some examples can be found HERE. Due to limited funding, only ideas which fall within one of the four focus areas will be considered by the Committee.
**Please consider the following when submitting your research project recommendations.
Please forward this message to other interested members of your organization.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your support of the Ship Structure Committee!
Jonathan Duffett, LT, USCG
