HSMV 2008


22 - 23 May 2008
Venue: Naples, Italy

The 8th HSMV Symposium will be held in Naples in May 2008. As in previous years, the Symposium will provide an opportunity to present and discuss developments in the design, construction and operation of high speed marine vessels. For many years, research was aimed at developing, designing and constructing vessels to run at ever faster speeds. 40 knots was considered the norm for all high speed marine vessels, whilst speeds of 50 knots and more were sought. However, the market has now recognised that each type of high speed marine vessel has its own optimum maximum speed, and that fast sea transportation must consider many other factors than speed, such as cargo capacity, economy of operation, passenger comfort and safety, environmental friendliness. Vessels which may never achieve 40 knots but for whom an increase in speed, together with consideration of these other factors, may provide significant added value include:

  • Large ferries carrying 2000 passengers or more
  • Mega Yachts
  • Sailing boats

For such vessels the increase of speed must not collide with passengers comfort.

Papers are invited on all aspects of the development, design, construction and operation of high speed vessels, particularly those relating to this wider interpretation of 'high speed vessels'.

The 8th HSMV Symposium will be organised under the auspices of a new supporting group, consisting of a University (Federico II), a R&D organisation (Instituto Nazionale Studi e Esperienze di Architettura Navale), a classification society (Registro Italiano Navale) and two professional societies (the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and Associazione Italiana di Tecnica Navale). This group represents the full spectrum of academic, professional and commercial interest in the high speed marine vessel sector of the maritime industry.

Symposium Topics:

  • Fast sea traffic (transport and economy, passengers and goods)
  • Shore facilities (passengers terminals, intermodal trade)
  • Design and production technologies
  • Hydrodynamics (resistance, seakeeping, maneuvering)
  • Safety (regulations, comfort, sea traffic control)
  • Structures (loads, strength, materials)
  • Propulsion (engines, propellers, water-jets)
  • Comfort and speed
  • Automation and ride control
  • Environment protection
