Efficient hull design for ice conditions in inland waterways 
With increasing interest in utilizing inland waterways (IWW) in European countries, the design of IWW vessels gains attention both from a transport efficiency and an emission control point of view. However, for Nordic Countries, the winter condition poses great hazards to the IWW ships. The research goal of this study is to improve the design of IWW ships adapted for Swedish freshwater ice conditions and take steps towards more energy and material-efficient crafts, seen over the yearly cycle and from a life cycle perspective. Ice-induced problems are thoroughly investigated to design such a ship, and the means of obtaining a lightweight structure are explored.    
Dr. Stylianos Seitanis, BETA CAE Nordic AB (industry researcher affiliated to LIGHTer Academy)
