Dr Rafet Kurt

Lecturer

Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

My principal research interests lie in the field of human factors in the maritime domain. I have investigated the effects of noise and vibration on human performance and developed human response models for noise and vibration levels onboard ships. My research interests also include design, optimisation and operation of ships, by considering the human factors in the core of the subject.

Besides my main research area, I have also been actively working in the area of ship recycling.  For 8 years I have been working in this area and contributed to the development of tools, models and training tailored for the unique needs of ship recycling sector. I am also involved in following EU funded ship recycling projects; FP7 DIVEST Project, LLP Ship DIGEST Project and LLP Boat DIGEST Project.

I am also actively attending IMO MSC and MEPC Meetings 

Specialities: human factors, ship recycling, maritime safety and risk, accident analysis, statistical modelling and analysis

Safe and Environmentally Sound Ship Recycling in Bangladesh - Training content development
Kurt, Rafet (Principal Investigator) Turan, Osman (Co-investigator) Gunbeyaz, Sefer Anil (Post Grad Student)
The key objective of the project is to make Bangladesh's ship recycling industry sustainable by helping it improve its standards related to occupational safety and health, working condition and environmental protection.
Period 01-Sep-2015 - 01-Dec-2016
BOAT DIGEST: The Boat Dismantling Insight by Generating Environmental and Safety Training
Turan, Osman (Principal Investigator) Kurt, Rafet (Co-investigator) Gunbeyaz, Sefer Anil (Post Grad Student)
The project aims to improve the HSE standards of recreational craft dismantling practices and address skill gaps, while at the same time raising the awareness of end of life responsibilities and options for recreational craft owners. It provide online Vocational Education and Training and Strathclyde University provides the training certificate for the attendees who completed the training module successfully.
