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

In recent years there has been a strong focus on the impact of research on policy and practice within the UK. The devolved government in Scotland has been particularly supportive of innovation and change relating to environmental improvement and this has been seen for example in the creation of Architecture & Design Scotland (A&DS) to champion good practice in architecture and design. The 2016, year-long 'Festival of Architecture' provides a plethora of opportunities to celebrate and reflect on the richness of Scottish architecture, as part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, and a catalyst to generate a discourse on architecture and design pedagogy.
