Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea is recognized for his outstanding work and accomplishments in the fields of naval architecture, marine engineering, and marine transportation systems. His original design of marine propellers and schedule of containership service which incorporated sea conditions characterized by stochastic variables other than the usual calm conditions and stochastic conditions of ship operations have significantly contributed to maritime knowledge and technology. His experiences as naval architect and marine engineer honed his knowledge and skills in the design of various ship parts and systems, and in the review of reefer containership, structural details of containership, main engine and propeller selection and electrical load, heating oil and hydrostatic calculations. Dr. Vea has continuously applied these in his work in the academe, government and private sector.
