Marine Technology and Engineering commemorates the 15th anniversary of the Centre for Marine Technology and Engineering (CENTEC), a research unit of the Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), the Engineering Faculty of the Technical University of Lisbon, and is associated with the 100th anniversary of IST. CENTEC was initially set up under the name Unit of Marine Technology and Engineering (UETN), and is now organised in the following research groups: Marine Environment, Marine Dynamics and Hydrodynamics, Marine Structures, and Safety, Reliability and Maintenance. CENTEC members have participated in approximately 85 EU-funded projects and 50 nationally funded projects, and have edited about 40 books and published more than 400 journal papers and 800 book chapters or conference papers.

The two volumes of Marine Technology and Engineering bring together 84 review papers from specialists worldwide who have cooperated with CENTEC and from present CENTEC members. This publication is a valuable source of information for researchers and PhD students interested in Marine Environment, in Dynamics and Hydrodynamics, in Structures and in Safety and Reliability.
Edited by:   Carlos Guedes Soares (CENTEC Technical University of Lisbon Portugal), Y. Garbatov (Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal), N. Fonseca (Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal), A.P. Texeira (Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal)
