Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Ocean exploitation relies on ships, offshore platforms, submarines and other marine structures. Thus, the effective design and adequate analysis of marine structures are essential for the sustainable development of the global economy.

We are pleased to invite you to submit your research to this Special Issue, entitled ‘Marine Structural Design and Analysis’. Oceans is an international journal related to all areas of oceanography. This Special Issue strives to collect contributions to the field of marine engineering, aiming to explore solutions to marine structural problems and develop new insights and research directions.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) fatigue assessment, crack initiation and propagation, ultimate strength, ship hydrodynamics, structural design and optimization, thermodynamics analysis, etc.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
