This publication includes all articles presented in the course of the RINA Conference 2009 - Innovation in high Speed Marine Vessels. Best industry experts from all over the world did participate in the subject conference, reporting on the latest developments on such the important matters as fire safety for FRP composite ships, station keeping of high speed ferries, sharing experiences from construction, design and operation of CFRP sandwich vessels and boats, explaining the protection of intellectual property for the HSC industry, and many more - there are in total almost twenty documents inside. Designers and operators of the ships have to possess the information about the limit-state responses of a ship operating in high sea conditions, and this shall preferably be done without having to resort to costly experiments. For the sake of accuracy, the structural response of the ship shall be considered. It will be demonstrated that the coupled smoother particle hydrodynamics approach can predict the FSI (i.e. fluid-structure interaction) effects during the impact of flexible cylinder on calm water - such case would be relevant to slamming of the high speed vessels' hull.
