Diesel Engine System Design

   The diesel engine is recognized as the most promising powertrain in the foreseeable future due to its superior thermal efficiency and reliability. The diesel engine has been widely used in commercial vehicles, industrial applications and today's passenger cars and light-duty trucks. Modern emissions standards and customer demands are driving diesel engineering to become a fast growing applied engineering discipline in order to meet the requirements of designing optimum diesel engines. The engineering population in diesel engine design is growing fast. The need for advanced design theories and professional reference books has become pressing and obvious. This book presents my own experience and findings in many interrelated areas of diesel engine performance analysis and system design. The book also intends to establish an emerging area of diesel engine system design for the diesel industry. Diesel engine design is very complex. It involves many people and companies from original equipment manufacturer to suppliers. A system design approach to set up correct engine performance specifications is essential in order to streamline the process.

The Indian Ocean in World History

   This book forms one of the parts of the New Oxford World History series which tells world history differently compared to any other source. First, it is comprehensive, covering all countries and regions of the world and investigating the total human experience - even those of so-called peoples without histories living far from the great civilizations. "New" world historians thus share in common an interest in all of human history, even going back millions of years before there were written human records. A few "new" world histories even extend their focus to the entire universe, a "big history" perspective that dramatically shifts the beginning of the story back to the big bang. Some see the "new" global framework of world history today as viewing the world from the vantage point of the Moon, as one scholar put it. We agree. But we also want to take a close-up view, analyzing and reconstructing the significant experiences of all of humanity.

Electronic Systems Maintenance Handbook

   The approach to probability and statistics used in this chapter is the pragmatic one that probability and statistics are methods of operating in the presence of incomplete knowledge. The most common example is tossing a coin. It will land heads or tails, but the relative frequency is unknown. The two events are often assumed equally likely, but a skilled coin tosser may be able to get heads almost all of the time. The statistical problem in this case is to determine the relative frequency. Given the relative frequency, probability techniques answer such questions as how long can we expect to wait until three heads appear in a row. Another example is light bulbs. The outcome is known: any bulb will eventually fail. If we had complete knowledge of the local universe, it is conceivable that we might compute the lifetime of any bulb. In reality, the manufacturing variations and future operating conditions for a lightbulb are unknown to us. It may be possible, however, to describe the failure history for the general population. In the absence of any data, we can propose a failure process that is due to the accumulated effect of small events (corrosion, metal evaporation, and cracks) where each of these small events is a random process. It is shown in the statistics section that a failure process that is the sum of many events is closely approximated by a distribution known as the normal distribution. A manufacturer can try to improve a product by using better materials and requiring closer tolerances in the assembly. If the light bulbs last longer and there are fewer differences between the bulbs, then the failure curve should move to the right and have less dispersion...

Guidelines for Preparation of Plans and Procedures for Recovery of Persons from the Water

   The Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) of International Maritime Organization considered and adopted, at its 91st session, res. MSC.338 (91) relating to the amendments to SOLAS 1974. The amendments are to be deemed to have been accepted on 1 January 2014. According to the amendments, a new reg. 17-1 is added in SOLAS Chapter III, requiring all ships to have ship-specific procedures and plans for recovery of persons from the water. Such documents are to be prepared according to the actual arrangements and provision of the ship's relevant equipment and they are to identify the equipment intended to minimize the risk to shipboard personnel involved in recovery operations. Lifesaving equipment carried on board may be used to recover persons from the water. The above stated plans and procedures must be prepared by the owner of the ship or management company and to be kept onboard ship for the use of study and training and to be readily available for examination at all times. The Guidelines aims at providing the industry with the references for complying with the requirements of the conventions, and the contents of the format set out in the Appendix may be added or reduced as appropriate in preparation of the plans and procedures, taking into account the actual condition of the

Towards a Unified Fatigue Life Prediction Method for Marine Structures

   Traditional strength assessment procedure implemented in marine structural design rules is highly experience-based due to the complexity of the structure and its operational environment. With the fast development of computer technology, software and hardware, the possibility to accurately assess the marine structural strength based on the strict principles of mechanics increases. The criteria which allow the direct calculations of loading and strength are often termed as first-principle-based design criteria. However, it is widely recognized that even the latest classification rules for marine structures are still far from the "real" first-principle-based criteria. Important evidence for this statement is that the strength is assessed at different global (hull girder) and local (stiffened panel and welded joints) levels and in different failure modes (yielding, buckling and fatigue). The relationship among them is not taken into consideration and the relative success of this strength assessment procedure is largely based on past experiences. Furthermore, in most of the fatigue strength assessment methods which are S-N curve based, the effects of initial defects and load sequence have been ignored and the damage state has not been specified. These, together with some other factors, lead to large scatter of the predicted fatigue lives. Significant improvements with regard to the fatigue strength assessment methodology for marine structures are required. The effect of fatigue damage on ultimate strength is not considered too. Thus, for existing marine structures operated for certain period, the strength analyzed may not represent the actual strength a marine structure possessed. Risk analysis based on the current strength analysis procedure is then rather uncertain. Inspection and maintenance decisions based on the assessment may not reflect the actual "optimum"...

Naval Strategy and Power in the Mediterranean

   Among the most exciting scholarly developments within the discipline of history in recent times has been the return of interest in maritime affairs, in navies and in seapower. One hundred years ago, during the 'golden age' of Mahan-ism and European imperialism, such an interest in naval matters would have been axiomatic—indeed, the fate of some governments occasionally hung upon how well or poorly they were judged to be carrying out a national maritime policy. Generations later, during a period in which Western navies (apart from the formidable US Navy) were much reduced in size and no longer possessed overseas bases, with the fate of the world apparently depending upon whether Washington and Moscow might one day decide to use intercontinental ballistic missiles, and with the focus of shipbuilding, merchant fleets and maritime trade having moved to the east, naval affairs—and therefore teaching about the history and present utility of navies—occupied a diminished importance. Yet even in that era of relative neglect, prescient observers could appreciate that sea power had not declined so much as become transformed. Dependence upon transport at sea never really diminished, although the 'containerization' revolution made such goods much less visible to the ordinary citizen. The sate carrying of fuel oils, especially petroleum, remained vital to the economic prospects of the world, and in particular to modern industrialized societies. The Cold War may have focused public attention upon nuclear missiles, but it was also accompanied by a serious naval race and a sustained effort by the Red Navy to challenge the West's maritime predominance. Control of sea-routes was still deemed critical...

If I Was You... And A Lot More Grammar Mistakes You Might Be Making

   Every time we start to write something, we’re setting off on an unknown journey across that big blank computer screen or piece of paper. We usually have a pretty good idea of where we are and where we want to get to. It’s the part in between that can be scary. This is where knowing the basic rules of English grammar and spelling helps. The rules are like signposts at key junctions telling you which way to turn. They help keep you from getting lost and confused amid the strange jungle that is the English language. That’s why you’re holding this book. You don’t need an exhaustive compilation of all the rules and regulations of our mother tongue. Instead, you want something that’s concise and practical—a kind of pocket atlas you can pull out and consult when you feel you’ve lost your way. Each of the entries in this book starts with a common mistake. We discuss why the sample sentence is wrong, what point of grammar it illustrates, and how to fix it. Don’t worry if a lot of these mistakes sound familiar to you. We’re here to help you get your grammar in order and clean up any errors. In the end, you’ll have a nice, clear, well-lit, well-signed road in front of you. You can read the book from beginning to end, but it may be more helpful if you use the index to look up the specific problems about which you have questions. For further information, we’ve also included a list of resources. So open your atlas, turn on your GPS, and let’s set out on our journey. Everything’s going to be all right now!

U.S. Flush Deck Destroyers In Action

   Al Adcock's book named "US Flush Deck Destroyers In Action" addresses four major classes of United States destroyers, namely Wickes, Sampson, Caldwell and Clemson. They all were designedfor the purpose of ocean escort with top speed thus allowing them to keep station with the fastest battle cruisers if that time. The Sampson class deck destroyers were a transition design bringing together old destroyer design and flush deck design, while Calwdwell class deck destroyers were some kind of test beds for the later Clemson and Wickes classes, which saw improved seaworthiness, higher speeds, greater range etc.

The Law of Tug and Tow and Offshore Contracts

   As I wrote in the preface to the second edition of this work, it is incumbent on an author to justify to his readers the putting out of another edition of his work, just as much as it is to justify the writing of it in the first place. That was in 2002 and the favourable critical reception accorded to that further edition (as with its sales) seems to have confirmed that it was both timely and useful both for practitioners and those in the offshore industry. Set fugit interea, figit irreparabile tempus. And so, the longer the next edition has been left, perhaps the easier the subsequent justification of it in turn becomes. In the case of a third edition, some ten years after the second, the headlong flight of time since 2002 has made this new edition not only timely, but truly necessary and the justification of a new edition is therefore straightforward for a number of reasons. First, since 2002, all of the standard forms of contract considered in this work, with the exception of the UK Standard Conditions, have been the subject of revision to a greater or lesser extent. As part of BIMCOs periodic review of its forms, the "Supplytime 89" form was revised and a revised version issued as "Supplytime 2005". This is the standard form contract which is. perhaps, the linchpin of very many of the contractual arrangements in the offshore industry. The BIMCO towage forms, "Towcott" and "Towhire", first issued in 1985, were next to be reviewed. The review was timely as the number of claims in respect both of harbour tugs and those eneaeed in ocean towase under "Towcon" terms has been on the increase. As I mentioned in the preface to the previous edition, these two forms, particularly, have continued to throw up a number of difficult questions as to the operation and effect of the BIMCO "knock-for-knock" liabilities clause, the well-known "clause 18" of the original "Towcon" and 'Tow-hire" forms which formed the basis for similar provisions in the "Supplytime" form. It appears to be a fact of life that this single provision, providing for a mutual allocation of risk in respect of the parties respective property and employees, described by BIMCO with justice as lying at the heart of the drafting philosophy behind its offshore industry forms and designed to minimise disputes in favour of insured or self-borne risks, continues to spawn many and varied arguments as to its effect and construction which are of considerable ineenuitv. Some of these have now been specifically addressed in the new "Towcon 2008" and "Towhire 2008" forms...
