Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering John C. Daidola, along with class of 2017 students Andrew M. Arnold and Michael J. Imbesi, have co-authored a paper entitled, “Trimaran Preliminary Structural Design Procedures for a Large High Speed Sealift Ship.” The paper will be presented at this year’s American Society of Naval Engineers Day, Technology, Systems & Ships on February 14, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
Structural design characteristics for a large high speed trimaran sealift ship are determined using the Lloyd’s Register Trimaran Rules. These are compared to characteristics determined utilizing a more traditional naval approach for monohulls and with a combination of naval and American Bureau of Shipping commercial criteria. The analysis also considers additional approaches for determining transverse hull loads and wet deck pressures by alternative procedures.
The research was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research under the ACCeSS University Consortium.
Webb Institute is one of the nation’s best colleges for students seeking a superb education with great career preparation and at an affordable price according to The Princeton Review (www.princetonreview.com).
The education services company features the school in the 2017 edition of its just published book, Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck (Penguin Random House / Princeton Review Books, $21.99, Jan. 31). The company also posted its school profiles for this book and the book’s seven categories of ranking lists on its website at http://www.princetonreview.com/colleges-pay-you-back
The Princeton Review chose the schools based on ROI (return on investment) ratings it tallied for 650 schools last year. The ratings weighted 40 data points that covered everything from academics, cost, and financial aid to graduation rates, student debt, and alumni salaries and job satisfaction. The Princeton Review editors culled data from the company’s surveys of administrators and students in 2015-16 and from PayScale.com’s surveys of school alumni conducted through April 2016.
“We highly recommend Webb Institute, and all of our Colleges That Pay You Back schools. They stand out not only for their outstanding academics but also for their affordability via comparatively low sticker prices and /or generous financial aid to students with need – or both,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Senior VP/Publisher and lead author of the book. “Students at these colleges also have access to extraordinary career services programs from their freshman year on, plus a lifetime of alumni connections and post-grad support.”
In the book’s profile of Webb Institute, The Princeton Review editors praise the school for its “unrivaled reputation within the marine industry” and quote from Webb Institute students the company surveyed who described the college as “THE college for Naval Architecture, where job offer is basically guaranteed after graduating.” It also cites PayScale.com figures reporting Webb Institute graduates with at least a bachelor’s degree have a median starting salary of $65,400 and median mid-career salary of $105,000.
The book also has an introductory section identifying “Great Schools for the Highest Paying Majors” and tips for getting financial aid, scholarships and grants from colleges. In addition to the profiles of 200 (73 public and 127 private) tuition-charging schools, profiles of nine tuition-free schools are in the book.
The Princeton Review is also known for its school profiles and rankings in its annual book, The Best 381 Colleges, published in August, its Best Business Schools and Best Law Schools web features, published in October.

Freshmen work alongside ship fitters and welders in shipyards. Sophomores serve as student observers aboard ocean going ships to gain hands-on understanding and appreciation for the relationships between the marine environment, the shipping industry, the ship’s operators, and the ship’s design. Juniors and seniors network and apply themselves in design and engineering offices around the world.
