Chalmers Area of Advance Transport – funding 2017

RESEARCH TOPICS AND CONTRIBUTIONS 2017

Project application Horizon 2020-project SEDNA.

Route planning with respect to structural response – consequences on ETA and environmental impact (emissions).

Safe and efficient Shipping in Arctic waters.

Arrangements of workshops/seminars/ member of scientific committees, etc. Assignment in editorial boards.

Reduced resistance: Deepen the knowledge regarding interaction between ship and sea, and (b) further improve hull and propeller for enhanced hydrodynamic.

Noise reduction: Cavitation-induced noise.

Structure and materials: (a) Cavitation-induced erosion and energy efficiency, (b) develop modelling and experimental methodology for structural analysis of failure of ballast tank coatings.

Maintenance, durability and robustness: (a) further improve reliability and safety, (b) optimise maintenance actions, (c) deepen the knowledge on material and structural deterioration.

Systems analysis: Energy systems studies focusing on sustainable, cost-effective fuel choices in a long term perspective taking resource limitations and emission reduction schemes into account.

Emission measurement and impact: Analyse the environmental effects of shipping technologies aiming for improved energy efficiency or change of fuel.
