By way of 1805 the 44-gun frigate was once most likely seen as a failed scan while the 38-gun frigate used to be considered because the vessel of the longer term. Ten years later each army was once development 44-gun frigates and at the present time it truly is considered because the image of the Napoleonic-era cruiser. This amazing transformation resulted from the functionality of 3 ships – the structure, usa, and President – 44-gun frigates equipped for the U.S. military among 1794 and 1799. Their victories within the naval struggle of 1812, in addition to their functionality opposed to the Barbary Pirates, stuck the mind's eye of the area – and spurred all navies into re-examining the category.

Naval Engineering in the 21st Century: The Science and Technology Foundation for Future Naval Fleets -- Special Repor 2 Science and Technology Shaping Future Naval Fleets Scholars have long considered science and technology to be society’s window on the future. This theme is evident to the Navy as it depends on the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to fulfill its mission by providing the science, technology, and research necessary to support future naval fleets.

13, 2010). While there is some naval engineering research by the classification societies, it is primarily to support the development of classification rules and construction standards for commercial ships and other marine structures. Other research supported by the maritime industries in the United States has little tangible connection to the naval engineering S&T programs of ONR. In summary, the ONR NNR-NE initiative must be evaluated within the larger context of the nation’s naval engineering enterprise and the ONR’s total research effort so that proper emphasis is given to the role of research and development in shaping the naval fleets of the future.

Naval Engineering in the 21st Century: The Science and Technology Foundation for Future Naval Fleets -- Special Repor Introduction This project will collect, synthesize, and evaluate data regarding seven (7) key university, government, and industry research activities in naval engineering: ship structural materials, design tools, hydromechanics, advanced hull designs, ship propulsion, ship automation, and systems integration. The data collected will be evaluated to assess the wholeness of the program and, as appropriate, identify any key opportunities for the Navy to make fundamental leaps in sea platform capability and affordability.
