ASNE is excited to announce a new venue for Technology, Systems & Ships (TSS) 2020. TSS 2020 will be held at The Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel, in Arlington VA. The program will follow the Design, Build, Sustain pattern of 2019. TSS will present an agenda that addresses both current and future Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps Programs with heavy emphasis on Naval Engineering. ASNE also looks to expand our Young Professional Outreach Program during this event. Beyond the shipbuilding programs, other topics such as ship modernization, weapon systems, combat systems, and C5ISR will be discussed. Given the intimate nature of the venue, TSS affords both government and industry professionals an excellent opportunity to meet with and discuss current events as well as future programs.

Reducing Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Costs Through the Proper Use of Welding Engineering

Welding engineering is often underutilized during ship construction, leading to inefficiencies, production errors and increased life cycle costs. Navy Vessels are enormous structures that house large complex weapons, propulsion systems, and personnel dedicated to the defense of our nation. Due to their extensive size, welding is a critical process in the production of these massive structures. Properly engineering welds is an interdisciplinary process that must incorporate many different engineering disciplines. Knowledge of chemistry, material science, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, manufacturing optimization and mechanics, along with their interaction, are all critical in order to have a complete understanding of the materials joining process. This knowledge then must be integrated into welding design, materials selection, welding processing, and testing plans to ensure the implemented welds perform to their desired specification. Increased utilization of proper welding engineering concepts can increase productivity, reduce bottle necks, and prevent welding failures that drive up shipbuilding and ship maintenance costs.
