Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers - Part M: Journal of Engineering for the Maritime Environment
Proc IME M J Eng Marit Environ
ISSN (printed): 1475-0902. ISSN (electronic): 2041-3084.
This new journal provides a forum for engineers from a variety of disciplines with a common interest in the design, production and operation of engineering artefacts for the maritime environment. The first issue will be published in August 2002. The unique attributes of Journal of Engineering for the Maritime Environment are: It straddles the traditional boundaries of naval architecture, marine engineering, offshore/ocean engineering, coastal engineering and port engineering; Advances in new techniques involving cross-disciplinary issues will be encouraged; Focus will be on the technology and underpinning sciences that enable better exploitation of the maritime environment. The journal addresses the engineering artefact as a system in itself and as a component or facilitator of a larger goal, i.e. the cargo transport chain, the fisheries chain, oil and mineral wealth exploitation chain. It focusses on scientific and mathematical principles underpinning the design, fabrication, operation and disposal of engineering artefacts relevant in a maritime context. Papers will deal with the interpretation, understanding and modelling of physical and other phenomena involved in the interaction of solid objects with a fluid environment. Individual articles should reflect the interdisciplinary nature and approach of the journal. Topics include: Engineering Sciences: structural response; powering, propulsion and load response; system dynamics, simulation and control; materialsí structure and fluid structure interaction; martronics; Technologies: information technology; computation technology; production technology; design methodology; Societal issues: safety engineering; human factors and ergonomics; environmental engineering; engineering economics; management science; Mathematical disciplines: variational calculus and numerical modelling; operational research; statistics; solid/surface modelling.
