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.

In accordance with the current regulations, the companies have to investigate the suitability of the applied operational measures; to assess the available solutions for the energy efficiency improvement of their fleet; and produce more suitable operational measures or revise their already applied measures. For this purpose, there is need to have a SEEMP and achieve EEOI targets. In this paper, a method for the prediction of the annual performance of the energy efficiency for a company’s fleet, based on Monte Carlo Simulation will be presented. As a case study, the method will be applied on a chemical tanker fleet. Recorded voyage data, including EEOI values, cargo type and quantity, mileage covered, speed profiles, fuel types etc., will be used. Conclusions on the feasibility, usability, reliability as well as suggestions for further development of the method will be included.
