Presented at American Filtration & Separations Society Conference
Rik van Hemmen was asked by the American Filtration & Separations Society to present a paper on filtration issues aboard ships at their annual meeting.
This was a novel question and novel questions tend to arrive at novel answers. When Rik was through, he felt that ships are simply a huge collection of filters and many of those filters are on the cutting edge. The end of the paper proposes a solution that may be lighthearted but actually points at something that we as naval architects and marine engineers may not always realize when we design our ships.
