Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

The NRCCI is an inclusive review, involving an extensive group of stakeholders, which is building on a long-term programme of change for the residential sector. Government, employer and workforce commitment to change is evident, for example, in the inclusion of the residential childcare workforce within the first phase of social services professional registration. It is also seen in the provision and take-up of a variety of training, development and research services delivered by the Scottish Institute for Residential Child Care (SIRCC)2. The activities and commitment of the residential sector, the work of SIRCC, and various Scottish legislative and regulatory mechanisms are substantially increasing qualification levels and specialist knowledge within the sector.
