Campus News Archives: August 2011
The summer of 2011 has been exciting on the Webb campus. Four testing facilities projects are well underway. The sill of the tank was raised by five inches, allowing testing of larger waves using the new eight-paddle wave-maker. Professor Royce and technician Pat Doherty, completed a set of regular wave seakeeping tests relating to bulbous bows on luxury yachts using the new wave-maker at the beginning of the summer. Another project in Robinson Model Basin is the addition of a viewing window in the east side of the tank. The recessed viewing pit has been poured in preparation for the window installation during winter work.
It is my honor to address you as the new Dean. Many of you know me as a classmate, fellow student, professor or industry colleague. I’ve been asked to discuss my vision of the next few years.
Your new life at Webb Institute has just begun, and we hope that you will feel like a member of the Webb family from the first day you step on campus.
