Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

EU funded SEAHORSE project is developing a novel approach to improve maritime SOPs. SEAHORSE Project’s ‘Smart Procedures Concept’ aims to develop a system to capture the behavioural adaptations that crew have developed in order to cope with operational demands and challenges. Initially, a detailed survey was conducted worldwide to capture seafarer’s safety attitudes as well as the common workarounds. Then, these collected workarounds will be categorised through conducting risk and benefit analysis. Accordingly, safe workarounds will be approved as Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), on the other hand, measures will be proposed to prevent reoccurrence of unsafe workarounds. This paper will present the proposed approach to deal with maritime workarounds and report the preliminary results of the analysis.
