Technology and Science for the Ships of the Future
Proceedings of NAV 2022: 20th International Conference on Ship & Maritime Research
The oceans are a key resource for transportation, energy and material extraction, and food production, representing one of the most important environments on the planet. Technological developments enabling us to exploit marine resources in a sustainable way are therefore of the greatest importance.
This book presents the proceedings of the NAV 2022 conference, held in Genoa and La Spezia, Italy, from 15 to 17 June 2022. The conference is held every 3 years, attracting specialists in marine technology from all over the world. NAV 2022 was the 20th edition of the conference, and covered a full spectrum of maritime technology themes, all related to the exploitation of sea resources. The book contains 87 scientific papers, covering subjects ranging from comfort on board; to conceptual and practical ship design; deep sea mining and marine robotics; protection of the environment; renewable marine energy; design and engineering of offshore vessels; digitalization and cyber security; unmanned vehicles; yacht and pleasure craft design, and inland-waterway vessels.
Providing a comprehensive coverage of the latest scientific and technical maritime issues, the book will be of interest to all those involved in this vital global industry.
