Doctorate from the Graduate School of Marine Science and Engineering Nagasaki University, Japan (1993), this is the technology inventor ship finned fish. Findings complete man named Prof Ir Dr Alex Kawilarang Warouw Masengi MSc Kinilou born in the village, Tomohon, June 13, 1958, has been patented in Japan.
Suami of Ixchel Peibie Mandagie MSi (also lecturer at the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Unsrat), was inspired to fly fish in finding the shipbuilding technology. Fish that can fly away like aircraft hovering low over sea level.
He was interested when observing body shape and fins fly antoni (Torani). The fish can float above sea level. His body was lifted through a relatively long fin movement and boost his own body movements.
Fisheries experts shipbuilding techniques, the observed fish antoni has a relatively unique shape, starting from the head, plump body, tail and all fins wrist.
Body shape and distinctive properties antoni fish that he applied to the hull design of the fish, following the installation of a fin on the hull. As a result, the stability of fishing vessels to be relatively higher when compared to other types of fishing vessels.
A number of assessment and testing the stability of fishing vessels that use these fins had been doing since last 16 years. Assessment and testing was conducted in the East China Sea, Nagasaki Ohmura Bay, Eastern Japanese waters, the Bay of Manado and Bitung waters around the city. As a result, the stability of the ship finned fish on average than ordinary fishing boat.
In addition, laboratory testing was also performed in several leading laboratories, such as fishing boats Laboratory in the Faculty of Fisheries Hokkaido University, Japan Fisheries Engineering Laboratory, Faculty of Ship Building Soga University, Nagasaki.
Results of testing the stability of the fishing vessel Sabani types of Okinawa by using fins in static conditions increased 17 percent. The ship currently in a state of dynamic or motion, stability level rose to 22 percent.
The same method, also tested on several types of fishing vessels used Pamo North Sulawesi fishermen, both in real size and scale models. From the test results obtained Pamo ship stability results in static conditions increased by 19 percent and in dynamic conditions increased 28 percent.
Based on all the evidence, the findings of ship technology finned fish whose design is based on the shape of the fish body antoni, Alex patented in his own name in Japan.
A shipbuilding companies in Japan are currently preparing to mass produce boats finned fish that are based on models or technologies that Alex findings. Hence, in the Japanese names are listed as a member of Dream Nagasaki shipbuilding consultant, and the consultant shipbuilding Michinoku-Indonesian screens. Also a technical consultant on Reedbed Technology, Liverpool, UK.
Alex is also a regular speaker and guest lecturer at various universities in Japan and France. He also frequently delivered scholarly papers at various universities in Japan, the Netherlands, Britain, and the United States.
Alex grew up in a family of farmers. He was born and raised on a farm at the foot of Mount (fire) Lokon, Kinilou Village, Tomohon, North Sulawesi. He was familiar with agricultural crops, horticulture, aquaculture and freshwater. So this oceanographers still love mountain nature.
Modest home surrounded by ponds or lakes full of carp and tilapia aquaculture. At the front of the house looks a grove of bamboo trees add a festive come home environment.
Father of four children, namely Kesihi, Shinji, Etsuko and Akira, even utilizing the natural location of his home in the cool mountains as a place of meeting of the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences. He often received guests at his home surrounded by the fresh water ponds.
Alex completed primary education in the village Kinilou in 1971, then went into the first technical school and graduated in 1974. Subsequently he continued his education in Fisheries High School in Manado and graduated in 1977.
After briefly working at a fishing company, Alex continued his education to the Faculty of Fisheries Unsrat and graduated in 1984. He followed the master's program at the Faculty of Fisheries Nagasaki University in 1990 and earned a doctorate at the Graduate School of Marine Science and Engineering Nagasaki University, Japan, in 1993.
Besides active in education, Alex is also known for his activities in North Sulawesi in various youth organizations. Among other things, he is listed as the Vice Chairman of the Youth Commission GMIM (Evangelical Christian Church in
Sulawesi GovernorMinahasa), One of the largest churches in eastern Indonesia. He is also a member of a team of young academics active Unsrat explain the position, vision, and mission Unsrat forward. e-ti/tsl
