AbstractEnormous technological progress has been made in the last 100 years from Eisbrecher I to Double Acting Tankers.

Increased tourist, as well as commercial, traffic in the Arctic and Antarctic will bring demands for safer and more efficient travel in such areas. This report compiles the lecture series delivered at the Pusan National University?s Advance Ship and Engineering Research Centre (PNU-ASERC) by the author during his stay at the university as a visiting professor/Brain Pool scholar under the Brain Pool Scholarship Program funded by the Korean Science and Engineering Research Foundation (KSERF).
