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

A tiny peninsula off of the Arabian Peninsula, Qatar has become one of the major global producers and exporters of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). The wealth produced by Qatar’s oil and gas exports has generated a construction boom in its capital, Doha, and the surrounding area. This resulted in significant growth at all levels, from urban development and infrastructure provision to cultural and educational facilities.
