Marine Engineering and Applications

Call for Papers

The number of new ships worldwide continues to grow, and the new technologies are developed to improve the safety and international requirements of ship which are increasing as well. This has a strong impact on this special issue in many fields, like system monitoring and fault diagnostic, corrosion science, vessel''s propulsion systems, engineering of vessel's superstructures, green technology and energy, advanced shipboard machinery technology, port engineering, heat transfer technology, and related topics that have been proved to be very useful and powerful tools for solving many kinds of practical problems in marine engineering. This special issue will deal with the focused topics with advanced technology and attract many papers of the highest quality.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts in mathematical problems of marine engineering and applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fluid flow and heat transfer
  • Modelling and structure of vessel
  • Renewable and green energy technology
  • Vessel's monitoring and fault diagnostic
  • Corrosion science of materials
  • Advanced shipboard machinery technology
  • Vessel's propulsion and power systems
  • Advanced shipping operation method
