Metal Failures - Mechanisms, Analysis, Prevention

   As result of using the first edition in the teaching of courses on Failure Analysis in the United States, Europe, and Asia, it is clear that students need more background in fundamental areas such as elasticity and plasticity, phase diagrams, fatigue, and statistics in order to deal comfortably with the subject matter, and in this second edition, additional material has been presented to provide this background. In addition, new topics such as the staircase method in fatigue have been included and a few subjects, such as discussion of the stresses developed in crane hooks, have been omitted. In addition, more homework problems have been included that are directly related to failure analysis so that the applicability of subjects such as fracture mechanics to real-world situations is more clearly understood. In this regard. Prof. Leon Shaw, formerly of the University of Connecticut and now with the Illinois Institute of Technology has been a valued contributor.

ESD Arrangements and Linked Ship-Shore Systems for Liquefied Gas Carriers

   This guidance was produced by SIGTTO to members' concerns about the some of the interpretations of the functional requirements for emergency shutdown systems; in particular, differences between the needs of the liquid natural gases industry and those of liquid petroleum gases industry. It was also aimed to encourage and promote the use of linked emergency shutdown systems at both LPG and LNG terminals, especially where cargo transfer rates are quite high or where they handle one of the cargoes stated in IGC Code 1993/Chapter 17. However, this SIGTTO publication is not intended to contradict any international or national requirements or standards for operational practices at the LG ship-shore interface.

Essentials of oceanography

   My aim in writing this relatively compact book was to produce a text that would enhance students' natural enthusiasm for the ocean. My students have been involved in this book from the very beginning—indeed, it was their request for a readable, engaging, and thorough text that initiated the project a long time ago. Through the nearly 30 years I have been writing textbooks, my enthusiasm for oceanic knowledge has increased (if that is possible), forcing my patient reviewers and editors to weed out an excessive number of exclamation points. But enthusiasm does shine through. One student reading the final manuscript of an earlier edition commented, "At last, a textbook that does not read like stereo instructions." Good!

A Guide to Contingency Planning for the Gas Carrier Alongside and within Port Limits

   The purpose of the present guide is to provide a thorough reference which might be useful to port authorities as well as operating management of liquefied gas carriers and terminals in reviewing or developing their planning in order to minimize the possibility of accidents. The book will also be helpful in controlling the consequences of such accidents happening within the port limits.This second (revised) edition takes into account the STCW Convention and SOLAS IX as well as the ISM Code. It covers ships in transit and operation, ships alongside, public relations and periodic review.

Marine Claims - A Guide for the Handling and Prevention of Marine Claims

   It is typical of our times and typical of the diverse man that Captain Christof Luddeke should have recognised the value and need for this book which so effectively covers the full scope of maritime operations. Typical of the man, who has such a special range of personal expertise and experience in the shipping industry, is the fact that in this book he recognises emphatically the aggregate value of the skills and knowledge of others and the need to make them both available and digestible. As leader of his team, whose individual reputations speak for themselves, his was the key role in judging what to include and, more importantly, what to omit. Typical of our times, the maritime industry in all its aspects, requires, now, as perhaps never before, professionalism of the highest order. Technology insists that data is available at once. Captain Luddeke has led his team of contributors to the common goal of providing immediately available information and expert comment. None of us can be expert in every maritime aspect and we each need help from others to be able to provide what commerce currently demands of us, whatever our individual area of professional responsibility. The first edition of this book, published in 1993, identified the requirement we all have for accurate information and expertise. That need grows daily and will never diminish, as this second edition exemplifies. This book gives us the comfort and confidence the better to do our job, whether it is ship operator, P & I manager, P & I correspondent, average adjuster, broker, surveyor or lawyer. Whatever our particular area of responsibility, we will be grateful for it. In presenting this book, Christof Luddeke classically represents the sentiment that anything can be achieved as long as the credit is shared.

World Cruising Routes

   Since this book was first published in 1987 I have received many positive comments and also some very valuable suggestions from sailors using it. Although in recent years I have not been able to sail as much as I would have liked, mainly because of my involvement with the various sailing events which I organise, it is this very involvement with all those hundreds of active sailors which has provided a rich and constant source of information on new cruising areas, unusual weather conditions, or less frequented sailing routes. I have also benefitted from the first hand experience gained during the first EUROPA Round the World Rally, some of which I sailed in my own La Aventura. All this information, gained both directly and indirectly, has been incorporated in this revised and expanded edition. By far the most important change that has occurred since this book was first published is the almost total dependence on satellite navigation in offshore sailing. Therefore all routes have been thoroughly revised in light of the ascendancy of satellite navigation. To simplify the planning of individual routes essential waypoints are listed. Several new routes have also been added as boats venture further afield and new cruising grounds are being discovered. Landfall information, as well as main ports of entry are also included to assist the planning of each passage from the beginning to its successful end. In many places routes have been regrouped by bringing together all routes originating from the same country or group of islands. For the sake of clarity, every such group has its own sketch map, so all sketch maps have been redrawn and now show not just the route itself but also the main distances.

Deep Marine Mineral Resources

   Major industrial developments are based on the availability of energy and minerals: iron in the 19th century, aluminium and copper in the 20th century, silicon and high-tech metals for the past twenty years. Today, glowing tensions are emerging between mineral availability and global requirements, especially in major industrial countries, which continue to rise in number and force. China's growth alone accounts for half of the rise in demand for base metals since 2000. Given the risks for Europe of supply shortages of strategic metals used in many high-tech industries, or even of certain common metals such as copper, it has become necessary to actively explore the potential of deep-sea mineral resources (DSMR). as a possible source in addition to known deposits on land. It is with this as a backdrop that I decided to launch a study, in September 2009. on this subject with a 2030 vision, focusing on the needs of France and Europe. France boasts a vast ocean territory, technological resources and long recognised skills in deep-sea exploration: it is therefore important that France continues to be a major player in this exploration, especially at a time when the conditions governing industrial development of this sector are being defined. Over twenty French partners, representing the sector's main players, were involved in this year-long study. I would like to thank them most sincerely for their investment in this collective effort. The issues addressed were both numerous and complex, as they concerned changes in the legal framework, supply and markets. the types of deep-sea geological sites liable to be exploited, the possible technologies and then impacts, all in an environment that remains poorly known and difficult to access.
