Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    Full-scale measurements in oceangoing ships have shown that the relationship between bending moment with the curvature curve of hull girder. As part of the INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) EU FP7 project, this paper carried out an estimation of wave-induced vertical bending moment for cargo hold of the 4250 TEU container ship, based on the data of pitch angles processing from the Tiltmeter units placed on board. The results are enable to be processed to the Decision Support System (DSS), in order to assist to monitoring and risk analysis for ship structure and machinery the towards enhanced and efficient ship operations (Konstantinos, et al., 2015). The prediction values also provide a reference for the trend analy-sis of the past record signals (Ulrik Dam et al, 2015) for evaluation of longitudinal strength of container ship. The advance in different pitch angle response (deformation curvature) of hull girder can be as a development of modern decision support systems for guidance to the ship's master (Lloyd's Register, 2016)
