Water covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, making maritime influences an important consideration in evaluating modern global economic systems. Therefore, the efficient design, operation, and management of maritime systems are important for sustainable marine technology development and green innovation. Marine Technology and Sustainable Development: Green Innovations examines theoretical frameworks and empirical research in the maritime industry, evaluating new technologies, methodologies, and practices against a backdrop of sustainability. This critical reference encourages the discussion and exploration of diverse opinions on the benefits and challenges of new marine technologies essential for marine and maritime professionals, researchers, and scholars hoping to improve their understanding of environmental considerations in preserving the world’s oceanic resources.
This textbook covers ship construction techniques and methods for all classes of Merchant Navy marine deck and engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as Undergraduate students studying Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. It is complementary to Volume 4 (Naval Architecture) and Volume 8 (General Engineering Knowledge). Importantly, this new edition contains up-to-date information on modern shipyards, dry-docking procedures and methods of construction. Extensively illustrated, the book also includes sample examination questions with worked examples answers to aid students in their learning.
Developed to complement Reeds Vol. 12 (Motor Engineering for Marine Engineers), this textbook is key for all marine engineering officer cadets. This new edition has been extensively updated to include the latest equipment, practices and trends in marine engineering, as well as incorporating the 2010 Manila Amendments, particularly relating to Management. Accessibly written and clearly illustrated, this book is the core guide focusing on the knowledge needed for passing the engineering certificate of Competency (CoC) examinations. This key textbook takes into account the varying needs of students studying motor engineering, recognising recent changes to the Merchant Navy syllabus and current pathways to a sea-going engineering career, including National diplomas, Higher National Diploma and degree courses. An essential buy for any marine engineering student.
Marine Systems Identification, Modeling and Control is a concise, stand-alone resource covering the theory and practice of dynamic systems and control for marine engineering students and professionals. Developed from a distance learning CPD course on marine control taught by the authors, the book presents the essentials of the subject, including system representation and transfer, feedback control and closed loop stability. Simulation code and worked examples are provided for both Scilab and MATLAB, making it suitable for both those without access to expensive software and those using MATLAB in a professional setting. This title considers the key topics without superfluous detail and is illustrated with marine industry examples. Concise and practical, covering the relevant theory without excessive detail Industry-specific examples and applications for marine engineering students and professionals Clearly presents key topics of the subject, including system representation and transfer, feedback control and closed loop stability, making it ideal for self-study or reference Simulation code and worked examples using Scilab and MATLAB provided on the book’s companion website
A marine engineer will need to have a broad background of knowledge within several aspects of marine design and operations. These aspects relate to the design of facilities for offshore applications and evaluation of operational conditions for marine installation and modification/maintenance works. Such needs arise in the marine industries, in the offshore oil and gas industry as well as in the offshore renewable industry. Developed from knowledge gained throughout the author’s engineering career, this book covers several of the themes where engineers need knowledge and also serves as a teaser for those who will go into more depth on the different thematic aspects discussed.
