    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    An integrated protection and control system (IPCS) for a warship's electric plant which provides a high level of protection and control and a high level of survivability for the ship. The IPCS will consist of sensors and actuators distributed throughout an electrical network and connected to a central processing unit (CPU) through modems and a real-time communications link. The functions of the IPCS including power load and distribution system management fault detection and isolation and equipment health monitoring are discussed. The application of an IPCS to an integrated electric drive are outlined.

    Abstract

    This paper examines the relevance of Offshore Process Safety Management with respect to the recommendations of the Cullen Report and the experience of other industries with a process safety element. Traditional classroom and simulation training can leave gaps in the training of offshore operators. By the accurate application of training method a system readily adaptable to changes in control equipment target population of trainees and different installations can be developed. Paper gives details of classroom training video technology and computer simulation as examples of Technology Based Training and Computer Based Training (TBT and CBT).

  • An intelligent knowledge based system for marine collision avoidance

    Authors

    G K Blackwell ; B A Colley ; C T Stockel

    Publisher

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    A prototype expert system for collision avoidance has been developed incorporating the International Rules for Preventing Collisions at Sea. This system simulated an encounter between two vessels whose control - response characteristics were read into the system. Some details of the system and its performance are provided in this paper. The main objective of the system is to provide an expert advisor for mariners capable of acting on sensory input from all available channels including information provided by an operator via a keyboard and advising on the preferred course of action.

  • Analysis of the dynamics during installation of subsea structures

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    MARINTEK developed theoretical models used for dynamic analysis during subsea structure installation are examined. The models use position dependent hydrodynamic coefficients to describe the forces in the splash zone and during penetration into the seabed. Geotechnical background for the penetration model is given as are model tests used to evaluate the effect of mud mat design on hydrodynamic properties. Two analyses for finding the limiting seastate for installation of the Snorre TLP suction anchors are presented.

    Abstract

    Large welded structures fabricated from high tensile materials have similar problems with fatigue. Analytical assessments for material fatigue fracture in welded structures including material fracture assessments practical methods for structural life assessments operational stresses and technological life assessments are given. Analytical assessments for crack resistance use task formulations stress intensity and crack propagation. Service life assessments can then be calculated. Integrated assessments are also discussed. Differences between Russian and western methods are highlighted.

    Abstract

    The application of Integrated Full Electric Propulsion in the Royal Navy's vessels is described. Detailed and specific propulsion and hotel load power requirements will be derived to meet the demand of the vessel. Three vessels: an ASW Escort an aircraft carrier (26 Hangared Aircraft) and a cruise liner are used to illustrate various design drivers. A number of alternatives to the classic electric ship aircraft carrier propulsion system of all gas turbine alternators are discussed. These are: a slow speed diesel propulsion concept - Combined Direct Diesel and Diesel Electric (CDDADL); a medium speed diesel concept - Combined Diesel and Diesel Electric (CDADL); and a complex gas turbine propulsion fit - Combined Gas Electric and Gas (COGLAG). Life cycle costs (LCC) including unit production costs (UPC) and through life costs (TLC) are also discussed.

  • Balancing the fire and flash protective clothing needs of Royal Navy personnel against the debilitating effects of heat strain

    Authors

    J R House

    Publisher

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    Reductions in heat strain and the enhancement of endurance of those undertaking damage control operations can be achieved in two ways. The first method is to reduce the level of clothing worn so that more sweat can evaporate; the second is to extract heat using external cooling. Experiments to assess how much thermal protection is required during flame exposures to ensure the sailor is not overburdened with too much clothing are presented. Other experiments to assess a variety of cooling techniques are also described. Ice-vests and hand immersion cooling techniques are compared.
