Technical Bulletin 2019

Keeping ships and offshore units safe in a fast-changing world means constantly updating onboard and onshore technology. To do this, maritime players need an unremitting focus on research and development in all areas related to shipping, ocean engineering and offshore energy activities.

Bureau Veritas is proud of its leading role as a technical innovator. We devote significant resources to developing and maintaining high levels of technical expertise. Our Technical Bulletin T is a collection of academic conference papers and journal articles written by Bureau Veritas experts throughout the year, and reflects the breadth and depth of their knowledge and experience.

This edition of the Bulletin illustrates how advanced developments in the fields of hydrodynamics, CFD, marine operations, hydro-structure, structural integrity, fatigue, ship energy efficiency and marine renewable energy are guiding new rule development, and how applied research can lead to the development of safer, better-performing ships and offshore structures.
