Stevens' Davidson Laboratory acquires new research vessel

Hoboken , N.J. -- Stevens Institute of Technology's Davidson Laboratory has acquired a new research vessel, R/V Savitsky, named after Dr. Daniel Savitsky, Consultant/Professor Emeritus at Davidson Laboratory. "The research vessel is one of the first vessels seen that is specifically outfitted for work in the New York Harbor," said Professor Michael Bruno, Director of the Center for Maritime Systems and Davidson Laboratory. The primary research area of interest stretches from the George Washington Bridge , south to Sandy Hook and west to the Passaic River . The R/V Savitsky contains the equipment necessary to conduct research throughout the entire harbor.

The vessel's name acknowledges Dr. Savitsky's numerous contributions to Stevens and Davidson Laboratory. Dr. Savitsky has been associated with Stevens for approximately 60 years and has authored dozens of research papers about the hydrodynamics of marine craft "It felt great to let Dr. Savitsky know that there will be a permanent recognition of his contributions to the lab," said Bruno.

"It was a complete surprise when Professor Bruno told me about this honor," said Savitsky. "Many of my results have been based on data collected for boat models tested in the Davidson Laboratory towing tanks. Having my name on a full-scale research vessel that can also be used for basic hydrodynamic studies is most satisfying," he said.

The R/V Savitsky contains a 2,000-pound hydraulic A-Frame and a full suite of electronic navigation and communications instrumentation. The vessel has a large working deck, which makes it stable in rough seas, and has the speed necessary to move quickly from one measurement point to another. Taken together, these attributes make her a perfect vessel to perform the type of research the lab conducts in the New York Harbor . The RV Savitsky will take measurements that include the physical characteristics (such as currents, salinity and temperature) and the water qualit
