Book Description

Maritime Engineering and Technology includes the papers from the 1st International Conference on Maritime Technology and Engineering (MARTECH 2011, Lisbon, Portugal, 10-12 May 2011). MARTECH 2011 was held to commemorate 100 years of  the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon, and the contributions in the present volume reflect the internationalization of the maritime sector and its activities. The book is divided into 9 main subject areas: Ship Traffic, Ship Design, Ship Propulsion and Control, Onboard Systems, Ship Dynamics and Hydrodynamics, Ship Structures, Risk and Reliability, Wind and Wave Modelling, Renewable Energy, and includes two general papers.

Maritime Engineering and Technology will appeal to academics and engineering in maritime engineering.
