Historic Ships Online Conference 2020
2-3 December 2020
The successful Historic Ships conference returns for a seventh instalment. Here at RINA we are not only proud of the current achievements in the marine industry, but also our maritime heritage. The history of the world is the history of the sea, that through trade and war shaped our modern world.
This conference will not only focus on the restoration and preservation of historic vessels, but also the research and investigation into the engineering and efficiency of historic designs through modern naval architecture techniques. With this event we will help to keep record of the skills and techniques used to construct and operate our historic ships for current and future generations.
Papers are invited from naval architects, academics, and enthusiasts on all related topics, including but not limited to:
• Analysis of historic designs, including investigations into their hydrodynamic efficiency and structural design
• Research into historic shipbuilding and sailing techniques
• Restoration and preservation
• Maintenance of craft skills and training
• Replicas and their concession to the modern world
• Recent archaeological discoveries
Selected papers may be published in the Transactions of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects
Day 1 11:00 - 15:30
