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 operational environment of the day-to-day industrial applications has more complex and pretentious structure, while their business effectiveness and efficiency is influenced by factors such as time, financial constraints, technology, innovation, quality, reliability, and information management. Maintenance costs consist a large part of asset management costs and a reduction in these expenditures can significantly improve business’s savings and entire operational performance.
