Surface tension gradients have insidious effects such as the well-known Reynolds ridge phenomenon. Aeration physics and cavitation are also affected by the presence of surfactants. The chemical makeup of the ocean, in conjunction with the thermal gradients, affects the stratification of the ocean, which in turn has a major impact on the formation and decay of ship and submarine wakes. Internal waves, driven by gravitational restoring forces on density gradients, have an impact on acoustic propagation and the operation of submarines in the ocean environment.
S. owners, whether built in the United States or abroad, almost always have their hull forms and propellers designed abroad, at facilities such as MARIN or SSPA. Examples are the recent container ship designs for Matson and American President Lines. S. Navy shipbuilding programs. INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH IN HYDROMECHANICS Researchers in naval hydromechanics have had frequent and long-standing contact with the international hydromechanics community through semi-open conferences arranged by the American Towing Tank Conference and the International Towing Tank Conference and through open international conferences on cavitation, acoustics, waves, and other phenomena, arranged by various national technical societies.
This has caused shipbuilders to increase their research in these areas. Research for the commercial sector is usually performed in the same industrial or academic institutions 28 AN ASSESSMENT OF NAVAL HYDROMECHANICS SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY that perform Department of the Navy-supported research. No shipbuilder in the United States has a laboratory and/or testing tank in which any hydromechanics research is performed. Commercial marine hydromechanics research aimed at the commercial shipbuilding and operating market is almost nonexistent in the United States.
