  1. 1. Voyage optimization algorithms for ship safety and energy-efficiency

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Helong Wang; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy efficiency; Dijkstra’s algorithm; Voyage optimization algorithms; Genetic algorithm; Ship safety; Expected time of arrival;

    Abstract : Currently, over 90% of the world’s trade is transported by sea. The environmental impacts from shipping and societal challenges of human and property losses caused by ship accidents are pressuring the shipping industry for more energy efficiency and enhanced safety. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Max Mejia; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : 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).

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mooring line; power cable; fatigue; coupled analysis; power absorption; experiment; wave energy converter; heaving point absorber; computational modelling; marine biofouling effect on fatigue;

    Abstract : To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and expand the energy mix, there is a pressing need for the exploitation of renewable sources of energy, such as biomass, hydropower, solar power, waves, and wind. This thesis focuses on ocean wave energy and its applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Safety within the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) Domain. Understanding the role of the VTS for safety within maritime traffic management

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Gesa Praetorius; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; maritime safety; safety construction; traffic management; Vessel Traffic Service VTS ;

    Abstract : Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) is a shore-sided service implemented to promote the safety of navigation, safety of life at sea, and the protection of the marine environment. Its purpose is to work for safe and fluent traffic movements within a determined area, a VTS area. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Fredrik Hjorth; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2015]
    Keywords : 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
