ABS Linnard Prize

The 2015 American Bureau of Shipping

Captain Joseph H. Linnard Prize


Markus Tompuri

Pekka Ruponen


Established in 1937 as the Captain Joseph H. Linnard Prize,

in 1993 it was renamed the American Bureau of Shipping—Captain Joseph H.Linnard Prize by action of the Executive Committee and will henceforth be sponsored by the American Bureau of Shipping. The award of the prize will be for the best paper contributed to the Annual Meeting and appearing in the Transactions of the Society. The title of the prize is "American Bureau of Shipping — Captain Joseph H. Linnard Prize." The prize consists of an engrossed, illuminated, and suitably framed certificate. Eligibility for the prize need not be limited to membership in the Society. In the case of co-authors, each receives an award. The selection of the nominee for the prize shall be made by the Awards Committee of the Society. The Awards Committee will consult the Papers Committee. The nomination will require a two-thirds vote of the Awards Committee and approval by the Council. Announcement and notification of the award will be made at the Annual Meeting. The prize will be presented with suitable ceremonies at such time as the President of the Society may arrange. The prize may be awarded annually but not more often.
