THE “JIMMIE” HAMILTON AWARD FOR 1991
The paper, “Magnetohydrodynamic Submarine Propulsion Systems,” in the May 1991 issue of the Naval Engineers Journal, is a significant contribution to the literature in the field of naval engineering. It easily meets all the selection criteria, particularly in its originality and quality of presentation, making it worthy of recognition by the Society. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) propulsion offers potential advantages for submarine propulsion and is the subject of investigation for surface ship propulsion as well. The authors have undertaken an extensive original study of an MHD propulsion system for submarine applications that is notable for its comprehensive approach and which provides an outstanding foundation for future work in the area. In promoting the advancement of the state of the art through its complete, well‐structured presentation, this paper furthers the purposes of the Society and the Naval Engineers Journal. The authors have made a most significant contribution to the naval engineering profession and to its literature and are indeed worthy to receive the 1991 “Jimmie” Hamilton Award.
