The Royal Institution of Naval Architects organizes the international conference on the Latest Developments in Lightweight Construction. This event is scheduled for 24th & 25th February 2000, Weir Lecture Hall, RINA HQ, London. An understanding of material properties, fabrication techniques, and applications are essential to the modern naval architect. Operational experience coupled with research will give the naval architect a more thorough understanding of lightweight structures.

Materials technology continues to bring new advances in vessel design and construction. Most vessel types benefit from weight reduction, through careful structural design and use of lightweight materials. Composite materials and construction techniques are being developed all the time; aluminium structures for ships are increasing in size; and steel sections have been developed with lightweight construction in mind. Joining technologies are also advancing, for example stir friction welding of aluminium, and adhesive bonding. Laser welding of steel panels is also being used for shipbuilding. These and other interesting subjects will be discussed at the conference.
