In the recent decades, newly established requirements and numerous intergovernmental regulations relating to the ship technology for reduced pollution as well as environmental impact have become very strict; the response to the demand of greening of the maritime transport has been recognized as one of the most importanе factors concerning global warming and climatic change.
It means that there is a huge demand for the environmentally friendly technical solutions that would offer significant reduction of the exhaust gases. In addition, the increased competition in maritime technologies requires more economical ships. As a result, minimization of vessel resistance/drag has turned into a central issue.
From the other side, the superior swimming and maneuvering capabilities of aquatic animals has motivated research on fish-like propulsion for many years in the past. The book is covering all recent major developments in the marine transportation and exploitation of the ocean resources, bringing together a great selection of documents that reflect the fundamental areas of the research in the fields of ship machinery, design and hydrodynamics, marine structures, safety, reliability, ship construction yard technology, and others.
