SMDR - Research Projects

School of Maritime Design and Research, popularly known as SMDR is a non-academic school of IMU Visakhapatnam Camps. Continuing the tradition of erstwhile NSDRC, the division is involved in various research and consultancy projects for maritime industry, be it shipping, shipyards, port etc….

SMDR believes in the process of syndicated research and does a lot of work in collaboration with various academic institutions, Shipyards, Design consultants and research labs such as Naval Science and Technological Laboratory (NSTL), IIT Kharagpur, IIT Chennai, NIOT, to name a few. Below you can find a selective list of research works that are being carried out at SMDR.

1) Control of ballast waters in ships through design development
2) Feasibility study of setting up of marinas in the west coast of India
3) Study & modernization of design & construction of country crafts operating in coastal & river waters
4) Study of emissions from vessels operating in Indian coast, inland waterways & harbor craft
5) Conducting safety assessment studies on passenger vessels in Andaman Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep Islands & Inland waters
