New Journal & Call for Papers


New Journal & Call for Papers

Woodhead Publishing announced the launch of its new international journal Ships and Offshore Structures. Aimed at academics and practitioners involved in maritime engineering, and with an Editorial Board drawn from 29 countries, this journal will offer truly international coverage of up-to the-minute research developments, advanced technologies and best practice. Ships and Offshore Structures is intended to cover the entire range of issues and technologies related to both ships, e.g. tankers, LNG carriers, large container vessels, naval vessels, and offshore structures, e.g. floating, production, storage and off-loading units (FPSOs), with a strong emphasis on practical design, construction and operation.

Whilst existing journals deal with technologies as related to specific topics, Ships and Offshore Structures will provide a systematic approach to individual technologies, to more efficiently and accurately characterize the functioning of entire systems. Prof. Jeom Kee Paik from Pusan National University in Korea is acting as the Editor-in-Chief and is supported by three regional editors - Dr. Anil K. Thayamballi (ChevronTexaco Shipping, USA), Prof. Dracos Vassalos (Universities of Glasgow & Strathclyde, UK) and Prof. Robert E. Melchers (University of Newcastle, Australia).

Some of the forthcoming papers include:
  • Wave height distribution observed by ships in the North Atlantic
  • Hydrodynamic features of high-speed vessels
  • Passenger ship safety in the age of zero tolerance
  • Some recent developments in the dynamic inelastic behavior of structures
  • Estimation of models for durability of epoxy coatings in water ballast tanks
  • A practical finite element modeling technique to simulate structural crashworthiness in collisions and grounding
  • Validated finite element analysis model of blast wall panels under shock pressure loading
  • Fatigue design of plated structures using finite element analysis
  • Assessment of fatigue strength of weld root in ship structures
  • Numerical & experimental scheme for dynamic response analysis of membrane type LNG cargo
  • Containment system under sloshing impact loads

The journal will contain peer-reviewed research papers, practitioner articles, technology case studies and analytical comment. Authors are invited to submit papers of 3000 to 6000 words in length. Acceptance will depend upon the decision of the Managing Editor and Regional Editors. The preferred method of submission is online.
