Presentation held at the second public workshop of the FIBRESHIP project, held at La Ciotat, France, on 25th of June 2019.
The second public workshop of the FIBRESHIP project offered to the participants a chance to discuss the different composite materials solutions for shipbuilding as well as learn more about the latest technological advances of FIBRESHIP Project related to design, construction and operation of ships integrally built in composite materials. FIBRESHIP Consortium is looking for a niche in the future shipping market through promoting changes in the regulatory framework of IMO and generating guidelines and methodologies for designing, building and operating large-length vessels, laying the foundations of a new market based on composites technology in shipbuilding and shipping.
In the first section of his presentation, the main objectives of the RAMSSES project are explained (reduction of the weight using multifunctional materials, selection of optimum materials and structural connections for the construction of lightweight ships, etc.). In the second one, it is explained in detail the technical progresses and the experimental and numerical results obtained the in the project up to now.
