    Abstract

    In 2000 the French Navy and BV (Bureau Veritas) began to develop classification rules for military ships. These were based on the BV2000 latest edition of BV rules for merchant ships. The important changes concern stability and survivability fire detection protection extinction with the need to maintain a safe damaged operation state and the introduction of rules for manoeuvrability and sea keeping. Particular service notations and additional class notations have been created to cover the various military ship types and functions.

    Abstract

    The process and principles of developing the Det Norske Veritas (DNV) Rules for naval surface craft and their application to navies and the shipbuilding industry are explained. After some brief background information the safety objective of the DNV Rules for naval surface craft is touched upon. Next a look is taken at DNV's conformity evaluation. After this DNV's rules for naval surface craft are considered covering rule structure use of DNV's rules for naval surface craft differences between a naval and civilian craft first issue and the naval craft technical committee.

  • Code and rules of conduct

    204a

    Abstract

    The Code of Conduct regulates the activities and conduct of individuals on the Register through the promulgation, from time to time, of Rules of Conduct, which shall prescribe standards of conduct with which failure to comply constitutes misconduct for the purposes of the Charter, as required by the Engineering Council ByeLaws. The Rules indicate the manner in which registrants are required to conduct themselves in various situations. They represent the minimum standard of conduct required by the Council of registrants. In all situations, including any not specifically covered by the Rules, the underlying principle to be followed is that, in any conflict between a registrant’s personal interest and the public interest, the latter should take precedence. The rules should be complied with both in the letter and the spirit.

  • Experiences on the development of rules for high speed craft

    Abstract

    The demand for high speed craft is increasing worldwide and the introduction of new hull forms construction materials and propulsion machinery is changing the shipbuilding industry. In the light of these developments Lloyd's Register (LR) has formulated a new set of Rules for Special Service Craft (SSC). The rules are a result of a major development programme that considered the economic and environmental impact of new technology and recent national and international legislative developments. A new safety approach was adopted that links structural requirements machinery performance and safety levels to design operational limits. Other new approaches were also implemented including a demand and capability approach to hull structural requirements and a system approach to machinery requirements. Details of the scope of the Rules are given.

  • Recent advances in classification rules for design and evaluation of ship hull structures

    Authors

    J S Spencer ; D W Robinson ; H H Chen

    Date published

    2000

    Abstract

    The recent development of non-prescriptive classification rules by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) summarised. The new rules known as the SafeHull System are different from conventional rules because they are based on a first-principles engineering approach where the load criteria are explicitly defined and the structural responses evaluated against different modes of failure. The key elements of the approach are compared with traditional classification rules. The application of the SafeHull System to container ships and research projects is described.

    Abstract

    Lloyd's Register is due to publish a new set of Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Special Service Craft (the SSC Rules) in late 1996. They have been influenced by developments in national and international legislation advances in high speed craft technology and economic and environmental impact of this type of craft. The rules cater for high speed craft light displacement craft and yachts with overall length of greater than 24 metres covering mono-hulls multi-hulls such as catamarans wave piercers surface effect ships (SES) and small waterplane area twin hull craft (SWATH) foil-assisted craft air cushion vehicles (ACV) rigid inflatable boats (RIB) and provide a basis for approving novel types of craft. Materials of construction considered include steel aluminium alloys and composites; the rules also provide the basis for the classification of craft built from alternative construction materials.

  • Risk and Classification Rules for Nuclear Powered Ships

    Authors

    IMarEST; 2011

    Abstract

    Once again there is interest in nuclear propulsion at sea. The debate over CO2, with the likely introduction of market based measures, cargo owners’ perceptions of CO2 and the rising cost of fuel oil is driving the interest in non fossil fuels. Whilst wind, solar and other alternative technologies can contribute to a percentage reduction in fossil fuel use at sea, there is no other current power source, other than nuclear power, capable of replacing fossil fuels. The interest in nuclear powered merchant vessels is such that Lloyd’s Register has decided that it needs to support ship owners and develop draft rules for nuclear powered ships. The regulation of today is very different to that of 30 – 40 years ago when Lloyd’s Register last had nuclear powered ship rules during the period 1966-1976. Hence the style and philosophy of today’s rules for nuclear powered vessels are likely to be quite different. Lloyd’s Register have published a number of papers during 2010 on the subject of nuclear powered merchant ships. References 1 & 2 explore the technology and the thorny issue of the perceived risks from nuclear power plant operation. This paper looks at some aspects of how the regulation of nuclear powered vessels might be achieved and the Classification rules that would be required to support their operation.

  • Design of marine diesel engine crankshafts comparison of measured and calculated stresses using the proposed CIMAC rules

    1985

    Abstract

    During 1972-1979 a Working Group of Conseil International Des Machines A Combustion (CIMAC) developed new rules for the design of diesel engine crankshafts with the aim of proposing these for standardizing the different rules issued by the major classification societies. This paper describes the work carried out by a research group from Bureau Veritas Lloyd's Register of Shipping and MAN to measure and compare the measured and calculated stresses in crankshafts and output shafts using the different design rules. Details of the CIMAC rules are given and the planning of the work done is discussed. Measurements were taken in a 2-stroke and a 4-stroke engine. The actual readings were compared with the readings calculated by the CIMAC rules and although some of the readings coincided well there were several discrepancies. However all the discrepancies came within the safety margin and they can be reduced by relatively simple modifications to obey the rules.

    Abstract

    RINA the Italian Classification Society published and put into force in January 2003 its "RINAMIL - Rules for the Classification of Naval Ships" which were developed with the technical support of the Italian Navy. This paper attempts to briefly review the structure and contents of RINAMIL and to present and discuss the most relevant issues encountered in adapting merchant rules to naval ships practice. The paper also addresses aspects which are specific to naval ships and for which ad hoc requirements have been included in the rules.

    Abstract

    Det Norske Veritas (DNV) is revising the classification rules for machinery and systems by applying risk and reliability methods. The new rules are based on assessment of functional integrity with criteria for safety of personnel equipment the cargo and the environment. As a result DNV have published the Nauticus (Propulsion) rules - the world's first set of risk-based machinery rules for diesel-driven propulsion. The requirements for assignment of the Nauticus (Propulsion) class notation are outlined. A pilot project in which the rules and procedures were tested is also highlighted.
