A GUIDE TO 2—STROKE MARINE ENGINE COMPONENTS

Another brilliant title presented by MarineInsight experts. This one is devoted to the components of the two-stroke marine engines. A two-stroke engine is deservedly considered the most critical part of the merchant ship since it provides the power required to propel the ship transporting the cargoes between ports.

Though there are numerous newly established regulations and technologies released to govern the maintenance and operation of these engines, some of the things remain same, and these include technical maintenance procedures, such as testing and measurements as well as taking clearances.

The authors of this volume have prepared an excellent compilation of the important checks and tests plus measurements commonly performed on the components of the two-stroke marine diesel engines. The content of the publication is covering the calibration procedures to be followed when conducting routine technical maintenance of the MAN B&W and SULZER marine diesel engines widely used on board marine ships.

The volume will definitely be of great practical interest for the students of marine engineering as well as for the machinery room personnel who will find many useful tips to be applied for their day to day work.

COURSE OF SHIPS STABILITY AND TRIM

An excellent course to be checked by all students of naval architecture. The book was prepared and published by the Maritime University Constanta. The main content of this publication has been divided into numerous sections. The first section of the book addresses the basic principles and introduces the students to the laws that are commonly governing the flotation and this information will help them understand why the vessels float at all; the information provided in this opening section will help in forming the very basic level of knowledge required to complete subject training program. It is followed by the sections addressing the form coefficients of the ship's hull, TPC, Load Lines, basic introduction to the transverse stability, conditions of stability, effect of the free surface on stability, centre of gravity, list and trim, centre of buoyancy, GZ curves and suspended weights.

The remaining sections of the book are dealing with the stability criteria, wall-sided formula, inclining test, ice acceleration, wind heeling, curves of statical stability etc. Some of the practical problems of ship loading have also been covered, together with the international regulations, e.g. IMO Grain Code. At the very end of the book there is an illustrative example of the Stability Information & Tank Sounding Book that can be used for ready and easy reference.

DNV—GL — ON—BOTTOM STABILITY DESIGN OF SUBMARINE PIPELINES

The official DNV GL - released recommended practice devoted to the on-bottom stability design of the submarine pipelines. This is the latest edition of the document. The authors of the recommended practice consider the stability design for the pipelines that are normally subjected to the current and wave loads. The content of the document is based on the technical experience and development.

The basic principles are compliant with the recognized rules; they reflect the industry practice and results of the latest researches in the field. The main intent of the document is to provide industry with the rational and reasonable design criteria together with the guidance for assessing the stability. The first general section of the volume covers the relationship of this practice with the other codes and touches the safety philosophy.

The next section is dealing with the design including load combinations and weight and resistance calculations plus the design criterion. The other two sections address the established design methods including vertical stability in water, on and in soil, dynamical, generalized, and absolute lateral static stability methods, free spans, seabed stability and other important aspects.

A POCKET GUIDE TO PREVENT BUNKERING MALPRACTICES IN SHIPPING INDUSTRY

In maritime shipping industry of today, the suppliers of bunker fuel tend to employ different dubious practices for the typical operations, and subject malpractices are commonly prevalent in Asian region. Regardless of where the ship is being bunkered, the huge importance of proper and accurate measuring the fuel tanks both prior to and upon completion of the delivery is considered critical phase of all bunker stem operations.

That is why attention shall be paid by the members of the bunkering team taking the barge measurements to the application of the proper trim and list and recording the real temperature of the fuel. Some of the ways of concealing fuel would include hidden compartments and altered lengths of the sounding pipes, short bunker delivery and incorrect sounding tables, doctored gauging devices and others.

The present guidebook prepared by MarineInsight experts shall therefore be of great practical use for the people directly participating in the bunkering process. Apart from the description of different malpractices, the book will provide tips to get better understanding of the bunker gravitating and so-called cappuccino effect, coriolis flow meters, bunker surveys and also different methods and techniques used for detecting concealment of the fuel.

CCS RULES FOR CERTIFICATION OF SHIP SECURITY SYSTEM

These Rules were developed and officially released by the China Register to be used for providing effective service for the certification of the ship security system. The content will be applicable to the security systems of passenger ships including HSPC, i.e. high-speed passenger crafts, cargo ships including HSC with the gross tonnage not less than five hundred tons, and MODU, standing for the mobile offshore drilling units.

The material contained in the rulebook has been arranged in four chapters. The first chapter is introductory which is quite standard for class publications. The second chapter is devoted to the certification process and documentation involved. The third chapter is dealing with the approval of SSP, i.e. ship security plan, covering general requirements and review of documents involved as well as approval for the SSP amendments.

The closing chapter addresses the SSP audit including general information, initial, periodical, additional and interim verification. Three appendices at the end of the book provide minimum requirements to the ISPS certification scenarios, and forms of the ISSC and Interim ISSC. A needful volume for the people engaged in associated activities.
