Quasi-Determinism Theory of Sea Waves
Read Paolo Boccotti's Abstract on the Quasi-Determinism Theory of Sea Waves. Paolo Boccotti is the Invited Lecturer for the Safety and Reliability Symposium.
Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) Tour - Friday, 9 June
For more than nine decades, Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) has been at the forefront of hydrodynamic and ice technology research. HSVA has influenced and led developments of testing technology, methods, standardisation and numerical procedures to solve complex problems. Delegates will have an introduction to model testing, followed by a tour of the facilities of HSVA.
LNG Speciality Symposium
Offshore LNG still faces many challenges. Many of the concept, transportation, environmental, transfer and other technology challenges will be explored in work-shop style specialty symposium:
- What are the key drivers in the industry from a contracting and operator perspective?
- Which terminal concepts are likely to survive & thrive?
- Will the industry successfully adapt to transportation challenges in harsh, arctic environments as well as the demands for a huge jump in the size of modern LNG carriers?
- How will developments co-exist in environmentally sensitive offshore & coastal regions?
- When will the promise of more robust transfer technology make an impact?
