The TUHH is to host the first International Conference on Ships and Offshore Structures (ICSOS) from August 31 to September 2, 2016 in co-operation with the Ships and Offshore Structures journal. A 50-strong international committee of academics from Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East will select the contributions in the run-up to the conference. Most of the papers under discussion will be published in a special edition of Ships and Offshore Structures later.
Leading international maritime trade fair SMM
The conference has been timed to allow delegates to attend the International Symposium on Practical Design of Ships and Other Floating Structures (PRADS’ 2016) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Lyngby near Copenhagen. Just days later, the leading international maritime trade fair, SMM, will take place from September 6-9, 2016 at Hamburg’s fairgrounds.
Analysis procedure for collision damage
The range of topics at ICSOS 2016 ranges from marine engineering, environmental technology and risk assessment procedures, design, seabeds and polar issues. The selected papers include a contribution by Ulrikke Brask Brandt and Per Olaf Brett on analysing collision damage for ships. The scientists Jaakk Heinonen and Simo Rissanen will present a paper on motion simulations in the offshore segment. However, the conference’s programme has yet to be completed.
