Ship design diagram for ship design award

The world renowned ship design team of Professor David Andrews and Dr Rachel Pawling, in the Marine Research Group have just been awarded a half Million dollar five year grant.

The world renown ship design team of Professor David Andrews and Dr Rachel Pawling, in the Marine Research Group have just been awarded a half Million dollar five year grant. The title of the award is “Distributed Systems and General Arrangement Design Utilising Complexity Theory for the Analysis of Architectural Implications” and funds the UCL element of this programme shared with the University of Michigan and the Technical University of Delft and funded by the US Office of Naval Research. The grant follows on the successful recent completion of an earlier five year programme where the three university teams collaborated on advanced research in computer aided design of complex vessels.

Professor Andrews said “I am very delighted to have this major programme taking further our recently completed work on ship architecture with our partners in Michigan and Delft. UCL has been a centre for advanced architecturally based ship research for over thirty years and this is the latest acknowledgement by the international naval research sponsor of our continuing leading position in this exciting area.”
