Conference on Light Weight Marine Structures

Friday, August 07, 2009

The first International Conference on Light Weight Marine Structures will occur September 7-8 2009, in Glasgow, UK. Cost savings is one of the criteria for successful structural engineering and transport application. The use of strong but light-weight members helps to achieve this in that the overall stress levels in a construction are reduced together with handling, manipulation and pay-load cost. These factors are important in such applications as ships, high speed vessels and offshore structures. This conference aims to gather designers, manufactures, marine scientists, regulatory authorities and researchers to discuss technological advancement and implementations that will lead to increased use of light weight design for marine structures.

Who should attend?
• Project Managers
• Designers, Shipbuilders & manufactures
• Specialists strength, materials , safety, risk & reliability
• Classification societies
• Structural Consultancies
