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

In this work we present a characterization of and discuss the research trends connecting social media to learning in the United Kingdom in the last six years. The data set for this research comprises articles published in educational journals indexed in the Web of ScienceĀ® database. A cluster analysis was used to group similar articles in the data set. We characterized the main research trends by identifying the typical features of the articles within each of the main groups that emerged from this analysis.
