MARIN HAS POSTPONED THE SEMINAR 'IMPACT OF SEAKEEPING ON THE TRANSPORT PERFORMANCE OF SHIPS' BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS. A NEW DATE WILL BE SET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
On a new date to be determined, MARIN will organise a seminar about the impact of seakeeping on transport efficiency. A highly relevant subject given the expected inclusion of the design for operational efficiency (energy use) in addition to the current design index (EEDI) on installed power. Participation is free of charge. This wide-ranging seminar will address the following topics:
Field observations, opinions of owners on the magnitude of and the mechanisms through which seakeeping affects transport efficiency and safety
Opinions of ship masters working in the above trades on what makes good seakeeping and present-day experience with the information and tools to avoid and/or manage inefficient and potentially dangerous behaviour in adverse weather
A view on the state of the art of predicting the hydrodynamic aspects of the behaviour of a ship at sea
Cargo behaviour and securing
Diesel engine performance
Current understanding of the interaction between wind and water; lessons from physical oceanography
Improving Ship Operations
Improving Ship Design
