PASADENA, CA, November 09, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI), an independent, leading biomedical research institute based in Pasadena, California, has announced the appointment of Allyson Simpson as Vice President of Philanthropy and Susie Silk Berry as Director of Philanthropy. Prior to joining HMRI, Allyson Simpson was the Senior Director of Gift Planning at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena for six years. Simpson also served as associate director of gift planning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Before she transitioned into development with a focus on planned, major and leadership giving, Simpson practiced corporate and regulatory law in Los Angeles for 25 years. She is a member of the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning - Los Angeles, where she has been appointed as President-Elect in 2016-2017 and will serve as President in 2017-2018. Simpson is currently Chair of the South Central Los Angeles Ministry Project Development Committee and is a member of the Mayfield Junior School Development Committee. Susie Berry will bring more than a decade of development experience to HMRI as the new Director of Philanthropy. Her new duties will include raising funds to further support the organization's biomedical research and development of new diagnostics and therapies. Prior to joining HMRI, Berry was the Director of Development at the YMCA in Los Angeles where she established goals, objectives and strategies to achieve annual revenue targets through major gifts, annual giving and foundation grants. Berry wrote grant proposals and managed the operations of the Chairman's Round Table annual funding driving sponsorships among other responsibilities. During her time with the YMCA, she successfully created the South Pasadena San Marino 5K/10K YRUN fundraiser through securing sponsors and exceeding the revenue goal by 20% through raising awareness of the Y's work in the community. "With their specialized skill sets and experience, both Simpson and Berry's work will make a tremendous impact in supporting our audacious scientific goals. They maintain strong ties in the philanthropic community and industry trade associations, and are well-respected in our community. They are true professionals who fit so well into the vision of HMRI," says Dr. Marie Csete, HMRI's President & Chief Scientist. "Simpson and Berry are exceptional, passionate individuals who will certainly make HMRI better known and better supported in our mission of changing lives through multidisciplinary, patient-focused research. I could not be happier with these new leaders of HMRI at this critical time in the organization's history with reinvigorated research programs and new labs under construction."

CFD analysis was used to study the hydrodynamic characteristics of the twin skeg type LNG carrier, and to design the new twisted rudder. To validate the computational method used, the CFD results of the original wake field analysis were compared with the experimental results of the same subject vessel via the use of stereoscopic particle image velocimetry system during model testing at HMRI's towing tank. The axial velocity of the left side (inboard) was faster than the right side (outboard). Armed with a better understanding of the propeller wake field flow, it was possible to design a twisted rudder using the CFD results. This design was compared with a symmetrical rudder during a model test using a three-dimensional method of interpretation in consideration of the form factor, which established the clear benefit of the twisted design.

The paper outlines the development and requirements of relevant legislation. It shows how the systems to meet the requirements have developed and how they are met with current technology. It explores different braking systems and the interfaces between braking and traction control systems. Finally it looks at the implications of such control systems on track capacity and the slippery topic of adhesion in the evolving world of ERTMS.
