Abstract : Evidences of a strong surge in international developments in ship model research are based on observations at the International Towing Tank Conference in Madrid, visits to most of the principal European Model basins, and the Symposium on Behavior of Ships in a Seaway held at the Netherlands Ship Model Basin, in September 1957. Aspects treated are international agreements, the people working in various research fields, and the laboratory facilities recently completed or under construction. (Author)
