Journal of Ocean Engineering: Special Issue on

Advanced Model and Full-scale Measurement Technologies for Maritime Industry

Model and full-scale measurement technologies for marine applications have been continuously challenged for their advancements. This can be related to increasing complexity and demands of the real-world applications as well as the rapid developments in computers, computational resources and methods. Advanced Model Measurement Technology for the Maritime Industry (AMT) Conference Series have been organized bi-annually since 2009 and latest was being AMT’15 held in 2015 on contemporary experimentation topics including:


  • PIV and other optical measurements
  • Underwater noise measurements;
  • Pods and other propulsor measurements
  • Cavitation erosion measurements
  • Smart free running and other tank testing applications
  • Coating performance and drag reduction measurements
  • Renewable energy device measurements
  • Smart sensors and control applications
  • Experimental uncertainty analysis techniques

but not limited to other maritime applications involving smart and advanced measuring equipment and techniques in model and full-scale.

This special issue aims to invite the AMT’15 Authors and other engineers and researchers from both industry and academia to publish the recent progress of their applications involving the above topics and other maritime applications. This is to review the current challenges faced in this area and make useful contribution to explore future directions of the measurement technologies for the maritime industry applications and research.

Submission Guidelines

Only original manuscripts can be submitted, according to the ‘Guide for Authors’ published on the Ocean Engineering website As regards the online submission system of Ocean Engineering, the authors are invited to follow the link “Submit your Paper”, located in the main page of the Journal website, and submit manuscript to Article Type “VSI: AMT for maritime” in Ocean Engineering.

Please mention the name of the Special Issue in your cover letter. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed in accordance with the established policies and procedures of the journal. The final papers will be selected for publication depending on the results of the peer review process and the reviews of the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chiefs.

Virtual Special Issues

The journal is now publishing its special issues as Virtual Special Issues [VSIs], which offers additional benefits to authors. Articles are published as they are accepted individually, in a regular issue; they are not dependent upon the rest of the special issue’s collection of papers to reach the same stage. Simultaneously, they publish in an online collection easily discoverable on ScienceDirect, where the VSI collections are listed on the left-hand sidebar. Articles are added to the VSI as they publish and appear in whichever regular issue is being compiled as they are accepted by the editor. This offers both increased visibility as well as a faster turnaround time for authors who would like to see their work formally published.
