    Abstract

    Drydocking maintaining and repairing VLCC's needs special management equipment and organisation due to the large size of vessel and components. Problems and solutions are highlighted- manoeuvring into dock surface preparation and coating the outerbottom work on rudder and tail shafttanks and machinery spaces.

  • The yard's view of safety in ship system design

    Authors

    Abstract

    An attempt is made to give a general view of the safety in the ship system design process the roles of the yard class owner system supplier and passengers. First a look is taken at the stakeholders in passenger ship safety followed by who will pay for safety and the issue of "foolproof ships". Next system design for safety is addressed covering naval architectural tasks ship systems design for safety and larger passenger ships. After this rules are considered covering prescriptive regulations versus development of technology and some difficulties experienced at the yard. Lastly a case dealing with blackout at sea is looked at and commented on.

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    Understanding and dealing with environmental problems moves faster than the associated legislation. Therefore shipowners to please the most demanding of their customers have to create their own standards and regulations to deal with them. Ten well-known marine environmental problems are presented. These include: oil; noxious liquid substances carried in bulk; packed harmful substances; sewage; garbage; air pollution; TBT (tributylin) in anti-fouling; ballast water; PRFs (port reception facilities); and ship recycling. A short description is give for each of them together with some consideration of the status of laws and regulations and possible methods of dealing with the problems.

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    This paper describes the R&D efforts being made to meet shipowners' requirements for the super efficient ship of the future. The latest developments in the Danish six-man crew project and the use of a novel modular control system are presented. The benefits of control and surveillance integration are proposed. A brief report on the system developed by Lyngso Marine for the worlds largest reefer vessel is given.

    Publisher

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    An engineering model of support structure design and installation is being developed as part of the Dutch Offshore Wind Energy Converter (DOWEC) project. The background of the model and some examples of its applications are presented showing that the model can be used in concept selection wind farm optimisation and the process of support structure pre-design. After some introductory information a look is taken at the structural design criteria followed by costs and durations of tasks. Next design loop and optimisation is touched upon. Examples are given. Lastly conclusions are drawn and future development is considered.

  • Transient simulation of marine diesel engine systems by improved characteristic cylinder map interpolation

    Authors

    M Gerstle ; G P Merker

    Publisher

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    A specially designed computer program using mean process values of the cylinder of one operation cycle is described. The working process calculation is carried out for the whole operation area before the transient simulation is started. The results are stored in an n-dimensional characteristic map. During the simulation the necessary process values are interpolated out of the map. By using an equivalence function the course of the cylinder torque can be reconstructed quite successfully. The different components of the engine can be described either by an equation (eg governor nozzle) a characteristic map (eg cylinder compressor turbine) or both (eg friction). Simulation result and dynamic torque reproduction are discussed.

    Abstract

    Attention is paid to the design and construction of BNF vessels specially constructed for the carriage of irradiated fuel for commercial reprocessing. Reliability assessment and hazard analysis of the whole operation including marine hazards are dealt with here. The consequences of the loss of a vessel at sea the monitoring and recovery of a vessel from the seabed are also addressed.

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    The extension of current risk assessment and cost benefit analysis to include a quantification of uncertainty involves little computational difficulty and has a number of benefits. Uncertainties include those in data and methodology and may occur in the identification of options hazard identification consequence modelling and establishing the value of a life. A practical scheme for quantitative assessment of overall uncertainty is given along with examples from projects.

    IMarE Conferences and Symposia

    Abstract

    A consideration of technically and politically influenced changes in marine developments with particular reference to propulsion systems condition and performance monitoring and the environment. Changes are assessed and their likely influence on ship operations and survey practices are determined from research data collected from a LR study. Topics include propulsors and studies of wake fields NOx emission reduction and maintenance and monitoring.
