Our Journal granted patronage for the Szczecin workshops during the II Design Thinking Week, which will take place in at least of 10 biggest Polish cities between 02 and 08 November 2015.

The event in Poland is organised by the Top 500 Innovators Association and is sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the National Centre for Research and Development, the U.S. Mission to Poland and when it comes to the Szczecin workshops - PGE Górnictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna S.A. 
The idea behind the event is popularisation and promotion of design thinking as a creative and systematic approach to problem solving by communities, towns and cities, non-governmental organisations or business. The approach is successfully used in the USA, Germany or Finland or by companies like Apple, Boeing or Shimano.



Dear Readers

    With great pleasure we present the 42nd issue of the Scientific Journals of the Maritime University of Szczecin which publishes original work on maritime-related topics. 

    The section entitled Marine Engineering and Innovation contains a series of articles dealing with deformation of engine components, improvement of flow efficiency and the reliability of buffered systems as well as power transmission and energy effectiveness. The section entitled Navigation and Maritime Transport focuses on nautical traffic models and contains case studies from the ports of Rotterdam, Szczecin – Świnoujście and Shenzen. Additionally, the issue contains papers on ship operational safety, expectations of human resources from an industry perspective, human and social factors affecting safety, and the operational running of the Archives of the Maritime University of Szczecin.

    Readers who wish to send us any comments and suggestions concerning the development of the journal are welcome to do so at any time. Authors are invited to submit original studies on a broad range of maritime-related topics. To access the electronic version of the current and back issues visit the journals website available at

Dear Readers
      Welcome to issue 41 of the Scientific Journals of the Maritime University of Szczecin. The scope of our quarterly is concentrated around sea-related aspects.

     In this issue there are four papers devoted to an overview of solutions in terms of renewable energy, including sea wind farms, tidal and wave energy conversion, and three papers on ship propulsion systems modelling. You cannot miss a very interesting article in the area of marine traffic engineering which describes the port basin as a waterway system component. What is more, there are a few papers on selected aspects of tribology, marine traffic safety, cartography and seamen manning agency operation.

     As for readers - please do not hesitate to send us any comments and suggestions concerning the development of our magazine. All authors, on the other hand, are welcome to send their manuscripts. To access the electronic version of the current and back issues, I encourage all the  interested to visit the website available at
