    Abstract: This paper discusses the formulation of a stochastic Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) process, introduced to existing deterministic VRP process, directing all efforts towards the dynamical situations that occur in a typical VRP setting as it applies to everyday real-life situations. It contrasts the dichotomy between static and dynamical situations in... Show More

    Abstract: As the development of ship building technologies, ships have been becoming larger and larger. As a result, the existing ports and waterways can not meet the requirements of safe navigation, berthing and unberthing operations of large ships. In order to ensure the safe berthing and unberthing for large ships, wharf and waterways need to be rebuilt, ... Show More

    Abstract: With the wide application of cylindrical FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading, FPSO), more and more people pay attention to its operational safety. To study and explore the safety of cylindrical FPSO offloading operation under extreme weather, it is necessary to conduct the simulation of whole operation process in such conditions. At fi...
