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 stability of scores on the Peer-Relations subscale of the Self-Esteem Questionnaire (SEQ) was examined over 11 to 13 months, longer than in previous research. Participants were 839 mainstream Scottish pupils aged 8 to 14 years old (48% male), allowing for the psychometric qualities of the scale to be assessed in a younger sample than previously examined. The subscale scores displayed good internal reliability and moderate testretest stability. Stability did not differ statistically significantly according to gender or school stage, and there were no gender or school-stage effects in relation to actual scores on the subscale. The Peer-Relations subscale of the SEQ appears to yield reliable scores for use with children as young as 8 years old.
