The Ship Stability Research Centre (SSRC) of the University of Strathclyde is the world leading centre of excellence on Ship Safety. Established on 22 January 1997 in response to demand from the international maritime industry to adopt scientific approaches in dealing with ship safety, SSRC today comprises 35 researchers from 15 countries, including a number of world-renowned experts, dealing with wide-ranging aspects of safety performance prediction in extreme environments and conditions using first-principles. SSRC has had a profound influence on the maritime industry, establishing itself as the acknowledged pace setter on ship safety in all its various forms ranging from philosophical to research, regulatory, design and operational aspects.
In the FP6 IP project VIRTUE, bringing the top EU CFD capability to address all aspects of ship hydrodynamic performance, the Centre is a member of the Steering Group and leader of the work package on â€œThe Virtual Manoeuvring Basinâ€?. Its main contribution focuses on seakeeping and manoeuvring performance, reflecting the prime areas of expertise in the Centre.
