Dominick Cimino – SAWE Fellow – CSRA, Naval Marine Engineer Advisor 

Class Description: 

The objective of this class is to provide an overview of the fundamentals of naval architecture principles and standard practices, and provide a basic understanding of the weight engineering processes relative to the marine vehicles in a marine environment with the effects of buoyancy, wind, and sea conditions. The course highlights the differences in mass properties in the Marine Industry versus the Allied Industries, as well as discusses actual examples of practical impacts of weight engineering in the Marine Industry. The course includes practical examples and class exercises.
