Simulation in marine engineering is currently an important practice worldwide in the design process. Unfortunately, while CFD and FEM applications are well consolidated (above all thanks to the availability on the market of the various open source and commercial software), time-domain numerical modelling still appears strongly dependent on the physical principles, hypotheses and mathematical approach adopted by the researcher. Therefore, in spite of the many significant achievements in maritime applications, dynamic simulation models need to be continuously deepened, validated and finally shared in the scientific world. This Special Issue aims to publish articles from researchers active in the field of marine systems simulation, paying particular attention on ship dynamics and propulsion. The main objective is to provide an updated overview of the techniques, tools and methods applied to the performance modelling, design and control of the ship propulsion dynamics, including equipment machinery. Contributions will present the methodological and technological advances in dynamic simulation applications, ranging from the field of sailing boats and motor yachts up to larger ships, underwater vehicles and offshore structures.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
