Ocean Engineering provides a medium for the publication of original research and development work in the field of ocean engineering. Ocean Engineering seeks papers in the following topics.
Ocean Engineering including:
fixed and floating offshore platforms;
pipelines and risers;
cables and mooring;
buoy technology;
foundation engineering;
ocean mining;
marine and offshore renewable energy;
aquaculture engineering; and subsea engineering.
Naval Architecture including:
ship and special marine vehicle design;
intact and damaged stability;
technology for energy efficiency and green shipping;
ship production technology;
decommissioning and recycling.
Polar and Arctic Engineering including:
ice mechanics;
ice-structure interaction;
polar operations;
polar design;
environmental protection.
Automatic Control of Marine Systems including:
automatic control;
automation and autonomy for marine vehicles and systems
Underwater Technology including:
AUV/ROV design;
AUV/ROV hydrodynamics;
maneuvering and control; and underwater-specific communicating and sensing systems for AUV/ROVs.

In these fields, papers on the following technical topics are welcome.

Hydrodynamics: CFD; vortex induced vibrations; fluid-structure interaction; hydroelasticity; linear and non-linear wave mechanics; buoyancy and stability; ship resistance and propulsion; seakeeping and controls; ship maneuvering, radiated noise.

Structural mechanics: materials; limit state prediction; fatigue; fracture; structural health monitoring; collision and crash worthiness, degradation.

Stochastic calculations: stochastic processes; safety and reliability; risk and limit state design.

Experimental approaches: instrumentation; full-scale measurements; model tests.

Marine equipment: risers; pipelines; ballast water treatment; air emissions treatment; underwater noise mitigation; and associated components or equipment.

Ocean environmental predictions- only for ocean structures and vessel operation and design: extreme event predictions; extreme statistics; wave groups; short-term environment predictions; impact of climate change. Note that broader environmental and climate model, sensing, and data sets should be submitted to climate and oceanographic journals.

Automatic Control of Marine Systems: Papers submitted in this subject area should have genuine value in naval architecture and marine engineering and should include the validation of results preferably, by full-scale measurements or model-scale tests or, when this is not possible, by high fidelity simulations. Methods used in papers should be validated in conditions that represent realistic marine environments.
