  1. 1. Ship Behaviour and Ship Bridge Allision Analysis

    Author : Axel Hörteborn; SSPA Sweden AB; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ship domain; ship simulations; AIS data; failure statistics; risk modelling;

    Abstract : The demand for maritime transport has increased with the growing demand for worldwide trade. This has led to a major increase in maritime traffic and ship sizes over the last decades, which raises the probability of accidents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Saving energy at sea: seafarers’ adoption, appropriation and enactment of technologies supporting energy efficiency

    Author : Martin Viktorelius; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; energy performance monitoring; shipping; seafarer.; workplace studies; ethnography; energy efficiency; maritime human factors; digitalization; practice-based; automation; sociomaterial;

    Abstract : The shipping industry is currently facing a major challenge related to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. New regulations and ambitious international goals that aim at mitigating carbon-based emissions with 50 %, demands on profitability, along with a growing awareness about the climate change, has prompted the maritime sector to increasingly focus on how to improve energy efficiency and reduce fuel consumption in ship operations.

  3. 3. Ridged sea ice modelling in climate applications

    Author : Sebastian Mårtensson; Markus Meier; Kristofer Döös; Peter A. Lundberg; Frank Kauker; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arctic ocean; Baltic Sea; sea ice; ice dynamics; numerical modelling; climate; ice deformation; ice compression; physical and biogeochemical interactions; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : This work aims to increase our understanding of the nature of large scale features of sea ice from a dynamics point of view.Sea ice plays an important part in the exchange of heat and humidity between sea and air and thus is an important component of the climate system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human-centred design for maritime technology and organizational change

    Author : Nicole Almeida Costa; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; participatory ergonomics; organizational change; technology acceptance; digitalization; systems theory; e-Navigation; human-centred design;

    Abstract : Context: The shipping industry is undergoing a transitional phase at different levels, including IMO’s e-Navigation initiative, and with this comes the need to use a human-centred design (HCD) approach to avoid accidents linked to automation issues, and to cater for the maintenance of safety and efficiency within this global transport system. Aims: The aim of this thesis is to investigate the value and challenges in HCD practice and how ergonomics/human factors (E/HF) principles can be introduced, as well as what gaps and opportunities exist in current standard operations and technologies in navigation that can potentially be followed upon by future e-Navigation developments, not only from a technological perspective but also regulatory, operational etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Management of ship-generated waste - illustrated from the Baltic Sea perspective

    Author : Magda Wilewska-Bien; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; shipping; fly ash; Baltic Sea; food waste; nutrients; leaching;

    Abstract : Globally around one-third of food produced for human consumption is wasted or lost. Although the food waste issues on land are being widely discussed, the food waste generated on ships seems not to receive similar attention. READ MORE
