The journal International Shipbuilding Progress (ISP) was founded in 1954. Each year four issues appear (in April, July, September and December). Publications submitted to ISP should describe scientific work of high international standards, advancing subjects related to the field of Marine Technology, such as:
- Concept development
- General design of ships and offshore objects
- Ship and offshore structural design
- Hydro-mechanics and -dynamics
- Maritime engineering and machinery systems
- Production processes of all types of ships and other objects intended for marine use
- Production technology and material science
- Shipping science, economics, and all directly related subjects
- Ship operations
- Offshore and ocean engineering in relation to the marine environment
- Marine safety
- Efficiency, lifecycle, and environment
- Ice-related aspects for ships and offshore objects.
The contents of the papers may be of a fundamental or of an applied scientific nature and must be of the highest novelty and rigor.

Abstract: Slow-drift oscillations of moored vessels in the open sea have become a topic of some importance in recent years. In this study we make use of the describing-function technique, which has been well-developed and much used in the analysis of nonlinear control systems, to deal with the dynamical equations representing probabilistic surge motion of vessels moored in random-sea conditions. Before the illustrations of this method of solution we outline the elegant mathematical approach to this problem by Roberts , some of whose results concerning the treatment of wave-forces we incorporate in the describing-function approach.

Abstract: In the present paper the rolling motion of a ship with particular regard to the nonlinearity phenomena is examined. The behaviour in a regular beam sea is studied in cases where the encounter frequency is an integer-multiple or a sub-multiple of the natural frequency of the system. The approximate analysis of the equation of motion, carried out with the Bogohubov-Krylov-Mitropolsky asymptotic method, shows that, apart from the synchronism, other resonance regions typical of nonlinear systems also exist. It deals with resonances of higher order, called ultraharmonic and subharmonic respectively. The origin of such phenomena is to be sought in …the nonlinearity of the righting moment. In these nonlinear resonance regions the ship has a steady-state response which could be much greater than that predictable by the linear theory. In particular, regarding the ultraharmonic resonance, we can see that it is always present and that both the maximum rolling amplitude and the frequency width of the corresponding zone strongly depend on damping. On the contrary, the subharmonic resonance appears only when the excitation intensity goes beyond a threshold level which is also dependent on damping. But, in this latter case, the amplitude of the response is practically independent from damping. The analytical predictions are eventually compared to the numerical results obtained by solving the equation of motion with the Runge-Kutta-Gill method. The agreement of the frequency response curves appears to be optimum in the whole frequency range and goes right up to considerable rolling amplitudes. Show more
