  • Ship Design and Performance for Masters and Mates

    Abstract

    The book provides key information on ship design and performance. It is divided into two parts - part 1 illustrates how a ship is designed from limited information supplied from the ship owners to the shipbuilders. The first chapters in this part deal with determining the main dimensions, how group weights are estimated and analysing capacities and hydrostatics for new vessels. Chapters 5 to 8 in this part deal with types of ship resistance, speed and power and chapter 9 examines preliminary design methods for a ship's propeller and rudder. Part 2, the first two chapters give particulars relating to to modern merchant ships and chapters 12 to 16 cover the various ship trials carried out by the ship builder on a newly completed ship. Chapters 17 to 19 explain the problems of ship squat and ship interactions in confined waters. Chapter 20 looks at ship vibration and methods to reduce it. Chapter 21 discusses performance enhancement in ship-handling mechanisms (rudders, retrofits etc.). Chapter 22 considers improvements in propeller performance.

    Abstract

    The role of information technology (IT) in maintaining ship safety and controlling operating costs is discussed. Current ship safety regulations and procedures are reviewed and standard ship safety record and data formats are examined. Efforts by the International Standards Organisation (ISO) to develop a ship safety record are highlighted and a common IT platform - the Integrated Shipboard Information Technology (ISIT) platform is discussed.

    Date published

    1995

    Abstract

    An introductory review is provided of the current state of the art in the field of modern ship design. First the main changes in classical and modern design are looked at covering general changes in ship design described chronologically documentation and prediction of changes in designs of future ship types. Research and development for ship preliminary design are considered. Optimisation of the ship design is discussed.

    Shelf Location

    235d

    Abstract

    The two volumes provide aspects of both ship theory and practice, from ship design to the integrated design process. The first volume (chapters 1 to 9) covers hydrostatics and strength and introduces the tools used by the naval architect, mathematical techniques, instruments and the computer. It also discusses safety issues, structural strength, the provision of stability and flotation and launching and docking. Reference material on the environment and how ship and human interaction with it affects design, is also included.

    Abstract

    The two volumes provide aspects of both ship theory and practice, from ship design to the integrated design process. The second volume (chapters 10 - 16) expands on the concepts covered in Volume 1, dealing with ship dynamics and design, including hydrodynamics, manoeuvrability and seakeeping. It concludes with a discussion of maritime design and of particular ship types.

  • Engineering economics and ship design

    Shelf Location

    235c

    Abstract

    The subject of Engineering Economics and Ship Design has been treated in a general way as the intention is not to include any extensive coverage of formal economics or detailed ship design, but to show how the two are related. The primary purpose of the book is not to assist decisions about whether to build, when to build or where to build, but rather what to build. The report is divided into three parts: The supply and demand for marine transport and shipping's economic environment; The detailed mechanics of making engineering economy calculations; and Application of the principles to ship design (which also compares alternative ship designs, and looks at the optimal ship).

    Abstract

    The view is expressed that the duties of the ship manager should not be simply to manage the ship but rather should take the initiative and act as a leader in its field. Firstly the shipping industry is looked at. Next ship management is discussed in some detail. After this professionalism and leadership are considered followed by leadership development.
