Marine and Offshore Composites


Venue: London, UK

This conference will explore recent and future composite developments for the marine and offshore industry, looking at not only their application in piping and secondary structures (grating, handrails, cable trays, etc) but also increasingly for large scale primary structure. Recent changes in SOLAS and other regulation away from prescriptive rules has opened the door for composites to be more widely used in the maritime sector. These developments brings new challenges in terms of large scale production issues, structural integrity, fatigue resistance, load transfer to metal structures, fire safety, etc.

In order to maximize the potential for weight and cost savings that composites can offer, a detailed design of laminate specification is required to make the most efficient structure, whilst maintaining design safety and minimising the chance for problems in production. An ever widening choice of resins, fibres and cores, are available, the decision of which to use, where and what production method to employ adds to the complication of finding the optimum design solution.

RINA invites papers from material manufacturers and suppliers, designers, builders, class societies, repairers, and regulators, on all aspects of marine and offshore composites, including, but not exclusive to:

  • New materials; high modulus fibres, fibre-metal composites, organic materials
  • Design experience & procedures
  • New production processes
  • Deriving laminate specifications
  • Minimising errors in production
  • Resins and Cores
  • Interaction with metal structures - load transfer and corrosion
  • Recycling of old composites
