NEWS: APS Participates in 2011 Fast Sea Transportation (FAST) Conference
Since its inception in Trondheim, Norway in 1991, the bi-annual FAST conferences have been the world's leading technical conferences addressing fast sea transportation issues.
Dr William Milewski, APS Principal Scientist and Manager of the APS Hydrodynamics Group, served as a member of the National Scientific Committee for the conference and moderated two sessions.
In addition, Dr Milewski presented a paper on the simulation of single and multi ship T-Craft motions in waves. The T-Craft is a vessel which can operate in multiple modes. It can self-deploy from an intermediate support base to the sea base and then be used as a high speed connector from the sea base to the shore without the need for a port.
