The Institution of Naval Architects

    Article metrics


    LAST week the Institution of Naval Architects held their annual spring meeting, under the chairmanship of Admiral Sir John Dalrymple Hay, one of the Vice-Presidents of the institution, the President, Lord Brassey, being absent abroad. There was an unusually strong list of papers; perhaps almost too strong, for it was impossible to do justice to the sixteen contributions, to say nothing of the formal proceedings and the chairman's address, within the limited space of a three days meeting. Some of the papers might have been referred back to the authors with advantage, notably the two long contributions, one on the detachable ram, and the other on the comparative merits of the cylindrical and water-tube boilers.
