  1. 1. Evaluating the ISM code using port state control statistics

    Author : Max Mejia; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; maritime safety; human element; International Safety Management Code; ISM Code; safety culture; port state control; maritime safety legislation;

    Abstract : The history of modern maritime safety legislation at the international level is relatively young. Its beginnings are generally associated with the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, a tragedy that resulted in the adoption by an international conference of the first of what was to become a series of versions (1914, 1929, 1948, 1960, 1974) of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).

  2. 2. Complexity and Ambivalence in Ship Safety Inspection : The view of Swedish Port state control officers

    Author : Fredrik Hjorth; Carl Hult; Ulf Drugge; Michael Baldauf; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Inspection; Port state control; Detention; Deprofessionalization; Compliance; Maritime safety; Profession; Bureaucracy; Sjöfartsvetenskap; Maritime Science;

    Abstract : Despite an extensive system of Port state controls (PSC) on ships, inspection loopholes in European control functions have been reported. Furthermore, risk factors associated with fatigue, stress and a poorly developed safety culture on board ships have been identified in earlier research. READ MORE

  3. 3. Offshore deployments of marine energy converters

    Author : Maria Angeliki Chatzigiannakou; Irina Temiz; Mats Leijon; Tony Lewis; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : offshore deployments; risk assessment; wave energy converter installation; marine current energy converter installation; economic efficiency; time efficiency; offshore operations; point absorber; hydrodynamic analysis; slack sling criterion; hoisting system failure.;

    Abstract : The depletion warning of non-renewable resources, such as gas, coal and oil, and the imminent effects of climate change turned the attention to clean and fossil fuel-free generated electricity. University research groups worldwide are studying solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and ocean energy harvesting. READ MORE

  4. 4. Designing for Safe Maritime Navigation. Studying Control Processes for Bridge Teams

    Author : Victor Fernando Placido da Conceicao; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; safety; Socio-technical Systems; navigation control; joint cognitive systems; e-Navigation; human factors; pilotage;

    Abstract : Several technological advances have been seen the maritime domain to achieve higher operational efficiency and to address the generally recognised causes of most maritime accidents. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) endorses the use of best available technology to “drive continuous improvement and innovation in the facilitation of maritime traffic” in line with the goal of sustainable development.

  5. 5. Indirect System Identification for Unknown Input Problems : With Applications to Ships

    Author : Jonas Linder; Martin Enqvist; Fredrik Gustafsson; Alexandre Sanfelice Bazanella; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; System identification; Model structure; Unknown inputs; Indirect input measurements; Physical models; Instrumental variable; Closed loop; Graybox model; Identifiability; Ship; Marine vessel; Operational safety; Inertial measurement unit;

    Abstract : System identification is used in engineering sciences to build mathematical models from data. A common issue in system identification problems is that the true inputs to the system are not fully known. In this thesis, existing approaches to unknown input problems are classified and some of their properties are analyzed. READ MORE
