39-Year iTradition Carried
On iResearcb for Nation


Carrying on its 39-year old tradi-
tion in solving maritime problems,
the University Naval Tank today is
performing vital services for the na-
tion in the field of research. Work
has been done in the tank for they
Army and Navy Departments, the
Coast Guard, Maritime Commission
as well as for shipyards and designers
throughout the United States.
Created as the inspiration of
Dean Cooley in 1906, the tank is
now under the direction of ]Lt.-
Comm. L. A. Bair, U.S.N.R., Chair-
man of the Department of Naval
Architecture and Marine Engineer-
ing, who supervises its activities
both in research and in ordinary
laboratory teaching. One of 12
experimental towing basins in
North America, the 300-foot tank
features 140 feet of false bottom,
the only one in the U.S., which is
Symphony To Give
Concert Sunday
The University Symphony Orche-
stra under the direction of Prof. Gil-
bert Ross will highlight its first pro-
gram of the current season at 8:30 p.
m. Sunday in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre with symphonies by Beetho-
ven an~d Raydn.
Composed of approximately 50 stu-
dents, the orchestra was reorganized
this year by Prof. Ross. The concert
program will include Haydn's well-
known "Symphony in D major"
("The Clock"), "Siegfried-Idyll" by
Wagner and Beethoven's "Symph-
ony in D major, Op. 36, No. 2."

used extensively in problems/ in-
volving shallow water conditions.
Until 1936, work was done with1
wax scale models, but because of
errors due to melting in the rela-
tively high temperatures used, wood-
en models are now used exclusively.
The work of the tank is primarily in
hull design-what might be called
streamlining for efficiency.' In order
to test the usefulnesses of changes
in design, models are made and are
towed through the tank by an elec-
tric tow car under control conditions.
Accurate data is taken, and naval
architects proceed according to the
Typical of all Engineering College
research is its direct application to
problems arising in every day indus-
try. The Naval Tank is no exception.
The false bottom of the tank for
example, has been used to develop
tow boats and barges for use on the
Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.
Recent activitic3 of the tank
have included designing hull forms,
towing and mooring equipment for
the Navy's floating drydock pro-
gram, designing and testing am-
phibian tractors, developing an ef-
ficient form for a fast class of
vessels designed by the Maritime
Commission, and designing hulls
and propellors making possible
speedy construction of several hun-
dred Army Supply vessels.
In ordinary times, the tank is
used for such routine jobs as cali-
brating current measuring instru-
ments, but today it is taking part in
the University's contribution to the
war effort by tests ranging from
high-speed aircraft rescue boats to
lake freighters and river barges.
Originally brought to Ann Arbor
in order to use the University Naval
Tank, the Reserve Officers Naval
Architecture Group prepares 80 offi-
cers every two terms to perform tech-
nical duties involved in the "con-
struction and maintenance of the
hulls of naval ships," according to an
official statement of RONAG purpose
and curricula.
Ranging in rank from ensigns to
lieutenant-commanders, the RON-
AGS study warship design, prac-
tical shipbuilding, metallurgy, as
well as mathematics and naval
architecture, under the tutelage of
the College of Engineering faculty
and their own staff.
The group is commanded by Lt.-
Comm.Charles A. Hoyt Jr., USNR,
and *' under the direction of the
U.S. Naval Post-Graduate School of
the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapo-
lis. RONAGS have been on campus
since June, 1943.

WOODEN MODELS USED-Navy ensigns of the RONAG School use wooden models exclusively for ex-
periments in the University Naval Tank. Work ha s been done in the Tank for the Army and Navy
Departments, the Coast Guard, Maritime Commission as well as for shipyards and designers throughout
the United States. This tank is one of 12 experim ental towing basins in North America. Models are
made and towed through the Tank by an electric t ow car under controlled conditions. Data is taken
and naval architects proceed according to the results.
