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.

An ambitions strategic plan for tourism development various regions in Egypt is currently implemented. Without adequate concern for environmental protection this development could cause ecological threats. Introducing eco-tourism and the underlying support infrastructure and facilities has harvested many benefits in countries that have unique cultural and natural resources. A number of research studies and survey efforts have been undertaken during the period between 1996 and 1999 with the aim to instigate parameters for encouraging eco-tourism development and the necessary control mechanisms. These efforts have resulted in three reports which were presented in various seminars and were disseminated to local authorities, developers, architects, and planners, toward informed decisions: 1. Eco-Tourism and the Egyptian Context 2. Eco-Friendly Lodges in Egyptian Settings 3. Requirements for Eco-Lodge Design in Egypt
