International Symposium ON SHIPBUILDING TECHNOLOGY

The Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers and The Royal Institution of Naval Architects are for the first time organising the International Symposium on Shipbuilding Technology (ISST2007). The theme of ISST2007 will be fabrications and coatings.

INTRODUCTION

There is a demand for thicker and more durable primer coatings to be applied to steel plates prior to initial fabrication of ships to reduce the cost of coating larger ships. Anti-corrosive technology in ballast tanks must respond to environmental demands to prohibit the use of tar and reduce the use of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Fabrication must utilize more efficient methods and the use of new materials. ISST2007 will provide an opportunity for all those concerned with this important and key area of shipbuilding to present and discuss the latest developments in these and other aspects of fabrication and coatings.
