Distortion Control "Tool Box" for Lightweight Ship Structures Workshop

MarineLink.com
Tuesday, January 14, 2014

This project compiles the physics and principles associated with distortion control derived from previous research and converts this knowledge base into a sequenced set of tangible, “shipyard friendly” implementation solutions designed to optimize several shipyard models. Distortion control modules will be designed and implemented to reduce the production rework associated with construction of lightweight ship structures. These modules will address the major sources of distortion, to include the welding and material handling processes. This project raises the technology readiness level of distortion control techniques to enable shipyard implementation.

Team: Bollinger Shipyards (Lead) | Ingalls Shipbuilding | Vigor Shipyards | BAE Systems - Southeast Shipyards | Edison Welding Institute | Gatekey Engineering, Inc. | Hepinstall Consulting Group, Inc. | V. Dlugokecki, P.E.

The project team will conduct a virtual technology transfer workshop to demonstrate final project results.
