SUSTAINABLE SHIPPING. A CROSS-DISCIPLINARY VIEW

Today, we can say that the international maritime shipping industry is at a crossroads. Back in 2018, IMO adopted the so-called Initial Strategy with the intention to get the greenhouse gas emissions half-reduced by 2050. In addition to that, the scene was set for the future happenings.

In this book, the author tries to take a cross-disciplinary look at the different dimensions of the sustainability problem of the modern maritime transportation industry, conducting the thorough review of the models for evaluating the major decisions and policy alternatives.

To get to the desired degree of sustainability, the wide range of different measures shall be implemented in order to attain the required environmental performance. The author has analyzed the competition distortions to find better solutions. In short, you will find all necessary information on sustainable shipping in this volume, providing the complete knowledge supplemented with the technical reports and statistical data as well as the scientific references.

The content of the volume is arranged in thirteen sections, starting with the introduction and greenship technologies, EEDI and ICT, oil pollution and ship recycling, sulphur emissions and speed optimization, and many other critically important aspects.

ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS IN SHIP DESIGN

With more than seventy percent of the surface of our planet covered by the water, the maritime transportation of people and goods is deservedly considered one of the critically important ways of moving them all across the continents. The international maritime transportation has always been in the extensive use, throughout the history of the mankind since it allows numerous achievements that would otherwise not be possible in the other ways, including the technological, commercial, social and other areas.

This has eventually resulted in the necessity of getting to the better understanding of the ship design, starting from the very moment when the human decided to board the first boat. There have been thousands of ship designers engaged in the process of making the boats safer and faster.

However, it was always too difficult for the people to develop a due knowledge of all aspects of the marine engineering. This is where the engineering mathematics came to help them though the application of the math methods and different techniques of solving problems. In this edition of the “Engineering Mathematics” title the team of experts attempts to employ the subject knowledge in order to get proper recommendations related to the various areas of the ship design
