Aims and Scope

Sustainable Marine Structures aims to provides a medium for the publication of latest original research papers that offers a rapid review and publication that freely disseminates research findings in the areas of Marine Structures Mechanics, Coastal Monitoring and Forecasting and more.

The journal also focuses on the issues of limiting human-caused damage to marine ecosystems from the development of ocean and coastal areas and on the utilization and conservation of ocean resources.

The scope of the papers in this journal includes, but is not limited to:

  • Naval Architecture
  • Ocean Sustainability
  • Marine Structures Design and Mechanics
  • Coastal Monitoring and Forecasting of Flood Risk Incidents including Coastal Erosion
  • Maritime Transport
  • Ocean Resources Utilization and Conservation
  • Ocean Space Utilization
  • Fluid-Structure Interaction
  • Oceanography
  • Deep-Sea Mining
  • Floating Body Dynamics
  • Materials for Ocean and Offshore Structures
  • Mega Structures in Marine Environment
  • Design of Submerged Bodies and Submarines 
  • High-Speed Crafts
  • Special Purpose Vessels
  • Marine Risers and Cables
  • Submersibles
  • Operations in Deep and Ultra Deep Waters
  • Wind Mill Structures in Marine Environment

Abstract: This study investigates the hydro-elastic behaviors of fully submerged horizontal cylinders in different regular waves. Two methods were proposed and compared in this study. The first method was based on potential theory in frequency domain and the discrete-module-beam (DMB) method, which discret...

Abstract: With the increasing demand of energy and the limitation of bottom-fixed wind turbines in moderate and deep waters, floating offshore wind turbines are doomed to be the right technical choice and they are bound to enter a new era of rapid development. The mooring system is a vital system of a floa...

Abstract: Unlike traditional transportation, container transportation is a relatively new logistics transportation mode. Shipping containers lost at sea have raised safety concerns. In this study, finite element analysis of containers subjected to hydrostatic pressure, using commercial software ANSYS APDL ...
