This book collects the papers presented at the second International Conference on Marine Structures,  MARSTRUCT 2009, which was held in Lisbon 16 to 18 March. This Conference follows up from the initial  one that was held in Glasgow, Scotland two years before and aims at bringing together researchers and  industrial participants specially concerned with structural analysis and design. Despite the availability of several  conferences, it was felt that there was still no conference series specially dedicated to marine structures, which 
would be the niche for these conferences. 
The initial impetus and support has been given by the Network of Excellence on Marine Structures  
(MARSTRUCT), which is now in its 6th year of funding by the European Union and brings together 33  
European research groups from Universities, research institutions, classification societies and industrial companies  
that are dedicated to research in the area of marine structures. However this Conference is not meant to be  
restricted to European attendees and a serious effort has been made to involve in the planning of the Conference 
participants from other continents that could ensure a wider participation, which is slowly happening.

The conference reflects the work conducted in the analysis and design of marine structures, in order to explore
the full range of methods and modelling procedures for the structural assessment of marine structures. Various  
assessment methods are incorporated in the methods used to analyze and design efficient ship structures, as well  

as in the methods of structural reliability to be used to ensure the safety and environmental behaviour of the

ships. This book deals also with some aspects of fabrication of ship structur
