Where the Fleet Begins: A History of the David Taylor Research Center chronicles the first hundred years (1898-1998) of the Center which provides research and testing in the development and design of the U.S. Navy fleet of warships and submarines. Today, the Center continues to design ships and test models using precisely built towing tanks and computer simulation. The book describes the research, people and institutional culture which have brought, during periods of war and of peace, cutting-edge science and technology to the Navy's fleet. The book, with over 100 illustrations, was originally published by the Naval Historical Center, Department of the Navy.
