Research Projects

During the last five-year period, the Department of Naval Architecture has participated and successfully completed the following research programs:

Development Of Wave Prediction Models For The Marine And The Coastal Environment And Their Utilization In Subjects Of Optimization Of The Naval Architecture Technology Used For The Confrontation Of Pollution Problems

Project Framework:

Archimedes - Support to Research Groups of TEI Athens

Completion :

2006

Funding:

Operational Programme for Education and Initial Vocational Training()

Person in charge for scientific and technical/technological aspects:

. Belibassakis

Budget:

56,193.00 €

Project Description: The goals of the project were to:
a) Develop and improve mathematical models for prediction of the characteristics of sea waves in the marine and coastal environments and their effects, focusing on issues challenging coastal areas from extreme weather and pollution from oil spills.
b) Develop and improve mathematical models of diffusion of pollutants coupled with the wave models
c) Use these on the development and optimization of naval architecture technology in addressing pollution problems in the coastal environment.

Additionally, a project for the improved supervision of the Practical Training of the department's undergraduate students has been approved, with Assistant Professor Ch. Stefanakos as scientific supervisor. The project will be funded by the National Strategic Reference Framework () and it has a budget of 170,000 €.

During the last five-year period, several faculty members have participated individually (or in small groups) to international research projects as National Technical University of Athens' (NTUA) external researchers and senior researchers. Most of these projects were funded by EU (4th, 5th, 6th and now 7th Framework Programs - FPs).

Finally, several faculty members of our department participate in a number of research groups, having submitted proposals for research projects in the ARCHIMEDES III and THALES national research frameworks. These proposals are now under evaluation.
