Tom Coe, a naval architect at Frazer Nash, has been awarded the prestigious Sir Donald Gosling Award at this year's International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC) in Amsterdam.

Dr Coe in collaboration with the Naval Design partnership received a £1,500 third prize for their paper named 'Understanding whole body vibration exposures on high speed marine craft'.

The award attracted a record number of outstanding candidates this year and the INEC Patron, Vice Admiral Sir Robert Hill, presented the prizes.

The award consisted of three prizes, first prize £5,000; second prize £2,500; third prize £1,500.

The Sir Donald Gosling Award is for authors aged 35 or under and aims to encourage involvement and attendance from younger participants from the military, industry and academia, allowing them to demonstrate an imaginative approach in delivering a practical proposal which contributes to the improved future naval operations.
