Naval architecture, ocean & marine engineeringResearch centres
We've a number of research centres established by the Department, the University or with industrial sponsorships to create centres of excellence and maximise our footprint in key research areas. These are:
- Maritime Safety Research Centre (MSRC)
- Maritime Human Factors Centre (MHFC)
- Peridynamics Research Centre (PDRC)
Maritime Safety Research Centre (MSRC)
The Centre aims to support the development and nurture the implementation of lifecycle risk management, accounting rationally and formally for all cost-effective measures of risk reduction that lead to sustainable cost-effective-safety-improvement for new and existing ships and offshore assets.
Maritime Human Factors Centre (MHFC)
This industry-facing research centre is the international home for maritime human factors to enhance the maritime safety. The centre performs world-leading research in collaboration with other human factors groups around the world and industry.
The Maritime Human Factors Centre supports the maritime industry towards achieving safer and more efficient human operations by offering consultancy services, training and CPD courses. It attracts high-quality researchers and students to train to be the next generation of researchers through provision of a PhD degree.
The centre is supported by experimental facilities and human monitoring tools.
PeriDynamics Research Centre (PDRC)
The PeriDynamics Research Centre (PDRC) was established in 2019 at the University of Strathclyde. The Centre's main goal is to perform cutting edge research in the area of peridynamics. The research centre mainly focuses on the key research areas by using some of the state-of-the-art techniques including peridynamics and inverse finite element method (iFEM).
