The CRS iSHIP working group aims at increased safety combined with lower ownership costs. This can be achieved by improving platform management and maintenance practices with improved assessment methods, understanding the influence of the operator’s choices and informing future designs. Specifically, iSHIP has developed virtual hull monitoring techniques enabling automated structural assessment without additional instrumentation.

Cooperative Research Ships
The Cooperative Research Ships is a unique community of 24 maritime organizations working together in real Public-Private Partnership. CRS started in 1969 with the intention to obtain general data about the hydrodynamics and related problems of large and high-powered ships. Today the research carried out by the CRS focusses on hydrodynamics, structural and related problems of all kind of ship types from a fundamental, design and operational perspective.
