Ocean Engineering

(ISSN 0029-8018)

Aims & Scope

Ocean Engineering provides a medium for the publication of original research and development work in the field of ocean engineering. Ocean Engineering seeks papers in the following topics.

Ocean Engineering including:

fixed and floating offshore platforms;

pipelines and risers;

cables and mooring;

buoy technology;

foundation engineering;

ocean mining;

marine and offshore renewable energy;

aquaculture engineering; and subsea engineering.

Naval Architecture including:

ship and special marine vehicle design;

intact and damaged stability;

technology for energy efficiency and green shipping;

ship production technology;

decommissioning and recycling.

Polar and Arctic Engineering including:

ice mechanics;

ice-structure interaction;

polar operations;

polar design;

environmental protection.

Automatic Control of Marine Systems including:

automatic control;

automation and autonomy for marine vehicles and systems

Underwater Technology including:

AUV/ROV design;

AUV/ROV hydrodynamics;

maneuvering and control; and underwater-specific communicating and sensing systems for AUV/ROVs.

In these fields, papers on the following technical topics are welcome.

Hydrodynamics: CFD; vortex induced vibrations; fluid-structure interaction; hydroelasticity; linear and non-linear wave mechanics; buoyancy and stability; ship resistance and propulsion; seakeeping and controls; ship maneuvering, radiated noise.

Structural mechanics: materials; limit state prediction; fatigue; fracture; structural health monitoring; collision and crash worthiness, degradation.

Stochastic calculations: stochastic processes; safety and reliability; risk and limit state design.

Experimental approaches: instrumentation; full-scale measurements; model tests.

Marine equipment: risers; pipelines; ballast water treatment; air emissions treatment; underwater noise mitigation; and associated components or equipment.

Ocean environmental predictions- only for ocean structures and vessel operation and design: extreme event predictions; extreme statistics; wave groups; short-term environment predictions; impact of climate change. Note that broader environmental and climate model, sensing, and data sets should be submitted to climate and oceanographic journals.

Automatic Control of Marine Systems: Papers submitted in this subject area should have genuine value in naval architecture and marine engineering and should include the validation of results preferably, by full-scale measurements or model-scale tests or, when this is not possible, by high fidelity simulations. Methods used in papers should be validated in conditions that represent realistic marine environments.
