The development of new materials based on technology convergence for lightweight materials, fuel efficiency and air pollutant reduction has been more important due to the International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s enhanced regulations of air pollutants of ships and the improvement in energy efficiency.
Therefore, the technology of making hulls and parts based on high-functional (high intensity, high impact-resistance, high environmental resistance, and high fire-resistance) and lightweight new materials is developed.
