HC Deb 14 October 1968 vol 770 c1W
4. Mr. Eadie

asked the Minister of Technology what help has been sought from his Department arising from the vibrations that have taken place in supertankers as a result of heavy seas.

Mr. Fowler

The British Ship Research Association which receives a substantial grant from the Department is working on this problem. They have proposed a method of neutralising wave-induced vibration and have placed a design study contract with a firm of shipbuilders.
