  • CAS Spotlight: Exploring the Role of Physics in Maritime Governance
    2014 a multigenerational group representative of the New London community will gather at the CGA along with Coast Guard Command leaders to experience the relevance of physics in the Coast Guard s mission The day is the brainchild of LCDR Royce James Ph D and Professor Eric Page authors and award recipients of a 10K American Physics Society APS Outreach grant which will fund the event The grant entitled On the Sea From the Sea Of the Sea The Physics of Maritime Governance is in reference to the CG Commandant s 2013 directive which outlines the Coast Guard mission to ensure safety on the sea security from threats delivered by the sea and protection of the sea itself 1 Participants in the October event will explore how physics is needed to achieve these critical Coast Guard missions by rotating through six interactive learning stations and applying the latest pedagogy supported by Physics Education Research PER Using an automated response system clickers participants will individually predict answers to conceptual questions such as the outcome of a demonstration to be performed or a mini experiment they will do People then discuss their predictions with other members of their group and resubmit their answers before seeing the experiment The process helps eradicate misconceptions and engenders deeper understanding and retention of the concepts 2 While such inquiry based physics education among college level peer groups is commonly studied in PER its success in multigenerational groups is largely unknown and will be explored by the day s events The first two stations will investigate how physics helps ensure safety on the sea Participants will apply Geospatial Information System GIS technology to a maritime incident such as search and rescue terrorism or a chemical oil spill to visualize the situation and its spatial influence and then make informed decisions on a course of action At the second station three modes of propulsion sail propeller and potential future magnetohydrodynamic MHD systems will be introduced followed by the groups engaging in a hands on contest to design the most efficient propulsion system Exploring the role of physics in the Coast Guard mission of port security from threats delivered by the sea stations will be dedicated to nuclear terrorism and the potential role of lasers in interdiction Participants will learn about nuclear threats and then use radiation detectors to search for and find simulated sources hidden and shielded on a makeshift ship Participants will also learn how high energy lasers may be used in the future to stop vessels with drug smugglers or terrorists and will then explore impediments to implementing this technology Participants will rank the relative importance of such impediments such as various atmospheric conditions and then see their predictions tested by laser demonstrations and other means To educate how the Coast Guard uses physics to protect against threats to the sea stations will focus on the physics of oil spills and green energy Through simple experiments participants will study fluid concepts and discover how wind waves

  • CAS Spotlight: Eagle Wind Heel Project
    these vessels has been questioned due to a series of accidents caused by vessel knockdown a sudden and extreme heeling from a strong wind or gust of wind The most recent incident occurred on February 17 2012 when the 188 foot sail training vessel Concordia was knocked down and sank off the coast of Brazil Other sail training vessel sinking incidents include the 316 foot Pamir 1957 the 117 foot Albatross 1961 the 117 foot Marques 1984 the 137 foot Pride of Baltimore 1986 and the 125 foot Maria Assumpta 1995 At the U S Coast Guard Academy Professor Susan Swithenbank of the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering faculty and LCDR Jessica Rozzi Ochs a faculty member in Mechanical Engineering and the prospective Executive Officer of the U S Coast Guard Cutter Eagle led a group of cadets to use experimental numerical and analytical methods to research the issues surrounding sailing vessel heel and knockdown U S Coast Guard Cutter Eagle known as America s Tall Ship is a three masted Barque rigged sailing vessel used to train the U S Coast Guard Academy cadets U S Coast Guard officer candidates and National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration prospective officers Eagle was constructed in 1936 at the Blohm and Voss Shipyard in Hamburg Germany and has belonged to the U S Coast Guard since 1948 Using data and information collected from Eagle the team of professors and cadets are determining the wind speed required to knock down Eagle and develop heeling arm curves to evaluate the stability and safety of Eagle In 1982 Eagle underwent a major overhaul to make her compliant with current military vessel safety regulations At the time of the overhaul a stability analysis was completed that calculated the righting and heeling arms for high wind conditions this
