Safe Operation and Maintenance of Dry Dock Facilities

   Floating dry docks, often referred to as "floaters," are structures with sufficient size, strength, displacement, and stability to lift a vessel from the water using buoyancy. The docks can be operated with list and trim to reduce block loading and reduce or eliminate vessel stability problems when docking or undocking. Some shipyards are equipped to transfer vessels to shore from a floating dry dock, which enables concurrent work on multiple vessels. Floating dry docks are comprised of a pontoon and wing walls. The pontoon is the main structural component that must be designed to distribute the concentrated blocking loads from the vessel to the dock and ultimately to the uniform buoyant force on the hull. The pontoon provides the transverse strength for the dock as well as contributing to the longitudinal strength. Additionally, the pontoon must have sufficient volume to provide the displacement to lift the vessel and dock out of the water using buoyancy...

Bills of Lading and Bankers Documentary Credits

   When the first edition of this book was published in 1990, international trade seemed to be in a crisis, and there was a sense that things had to change. New forms of trade, and associated documentation, were being forced on the trading parties and the banks, with which the law had not developed adequately to cope. In particular, the contractual relationships with carriers, being based on law that had originated nearly 150 years earlier, were outdated and inadequate. Now we are almost 20 years on. There has, of course, been much development of the law since then, and two further revisions of the UCP, the latest just last year. From a legal viewpoint, probably the most important single change is that carriage contract issues have been largely resolved by the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act 1992. This has had a knock-on effect on the usefulness of newer forms of documentation, making it possible for waybills in particular to be used far more securely than before. The problems are not the same now as they were in 1990. Today, it may be that the documentary credit itself is in crisis, as it seems to be declining in popularity, as against other forms of payment. This may reflect no more than that it is best suited to a particular type of market, the type of market for which it originally developed, and has not adapted well to some of the different types of market that exist today. Maybe it cannot adapt. Maybe there is also a case for saying that different forms of finance suit different types of trade, and that there is little point in using documentary credits in trades for which thev are not well suited.

Emerging Ballast Water Management Systems

   The technology community has been actively developing various Ballast Water Management Systems in order to cater to the emerging BW technology market. Such systems are required to undergo various testing and approval processes, as per the International Convention on the Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments known as BWM Convention, 2004 and its Guidelines, including land-based testing under challenging conditions. While several BWMSs are currently being developed or approved, testing among suchsystem test facilities (TFs) around the world tends to be somewhat inconsistent and significant methodological and harmonization gaps remain. This incongruity has finally contributed to a certain level of confusion and lack of confidence among the ship owners and technology developers.

Shaft Grounding Rings - Protecting VFD Driven Motors from Bearing Currents

   When pulse width modulation (PWM) Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) were developed using insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), this new technology was used to control electric induction motors in industrial and commercial applications. The advantages were obvious: Torque and motor speed could now be precisely controlled to optimize both process and energy requirements, The potential to save energy by operating motors at only the needed speed while maintaining torque requirements could potentially result in a 20% to 50% energy savings, Processes could be optimized and controlled by computer processing systems to achieve productivity increases or energy savings.

US Bodily Injury News - December 2010

   This past Septembers Bodily Injury Team Round Table focused on on the developments into and through trial of a significant bodily injury case. We were pleased to have three distinguished speakers who gave very different but practical perspectives on the litigation process in such a case. Jocelyn Cinquino, of Trial Graphix, New York City started off with a presentation that gave us insights into the impact of jury demographics.The contrast between different generations and how they assimilate information and form judgements was quite startling. The next two speakers addressed crew issues in the United States. Gary Hemphill of Phelps, Dunbar L.L.P., New Orleans, spoke on foreign seafarers remedies and employer's defenses in the U.S. Nick Politis of Flynn Delicti & Wise L.L.P. in Long Beach covered U.S. seafarer's remedies for maintenance and the tricky areas of unrelated conditions discovered during treatment for illnesses and punitive damages. They each prepared papers, which were provided to the attendees...

STAB 2009 - 10th International Conference on Stability of Ships and Ocean Vehicles - St. Petersburg

   For the first time in recent history. Russia is hosting an esteemed international conference in the field of stability and safety of ships and ocean vehicles. This is a token of recognition of the contribution made by Russian researchers in tliis field for the last hundred years. Traditionally. STAB conferences are places for the exchange of information on the most recent results, formulation new ideas and directions of research, as well as a place for discussions of new proposals for stability criteria and standards. This is why there are well-established sets of sessions like Rules and Criteria. Intact Stability. Damage Stability. Nonlinear Dynamics, etc. The difference between the conferences was mostly on key problems that were discussed within the frames of these sessions. This conference has a large number of papers focused on numerical and IT aspects of stability-related problems. Inevitably, as these problems became complex or diverse, use of new information technologies comes into the focus. These technologies are now considered from a new point of view: not so much as just a more powerful computing tool, but rather focusing on facilitation of the exchange of data and knowledge between researchers. There is an understanding that these technologies are needed, not because they are convenient, but because new problems cannot be solved without these new technologies. This understanding becomes a factor of progress just by itself. Almost ninety papers were submitted for the conference, and the authors of these papers represent more than twenty countries. All the papers were peer-reviewed. I hope that the hard work of the reviewer's will help the conference be a success. I would also like to acknowledge the great help from the members of the international standing committee, particularly. Dr. Vadim Belenky. Prof. Kostas Spyrou. Prof. Alberto Francescutto and Prof. Luis Peres Rojas. However, the conference is being held at a time that is not easy at all for the global economy. It makes it even more valuable that the spread of participation covers the entire world: Japan. Korea. Europe. Australia, New Zealand, and the Americas. It shows how important, as an international event...

China's Rising Sea Power - The PLA Navy's Submarine Challenge

   Since the end of the Cold War the focus of concerns about maritime security has shifted from the threat of disruption to seaborne trade resulting from armed interstate conflict at sea towards threats posed by non-state actors in the form of piracy, illegal fishing, smuggling of people, drugs and arms and, particularly since September 2001, terrorism. There is good reason for this concern. The incidence of piracy, notably in Southeast Asian waters, has increased significantly, particularly since the 1997-8 Asian financial crisis. The International Maritime Bureau's annual piracy report for 2002 recorded a worldwide total of 370 attacks in 2002 compared with 335 in 2001. The highest number of attacks occurred in Indonesian waters (International Chamber of Commerce 2003). Terrorists have demonstrated dramatically the feasibility of attacking ships in ports or at sea with the suicide boat attacks against the USS Cole in the port of Aden in October 2000 and the attack against the French-registered tanker Limburg in the Gulf of Aden two years later. It would not be beyond the means of a well-organised terrorist group to use the tools and methods of Southeast Asia's pirates to attack shipping in the narrow waters of the Malacca, Sunda or Lombok Straits and cause major disruption to the maritime commerce on which the economies of Northeast Asia are so heavily dependent. Even more worrying is the prospect of terrorists using a ship as a delivery vehicle for weapons of mass destruction, detonating such a device in one of the major port cities in Asia such as Singapore, Hong Kong or Tokyo. Attacks of this kind could seriously undermine the prospects for continued economic growth in China, Taiwan and South Korea and economic recovery in Japan by raising the cost of imported raw materials. With China's economic growth increasingly serving as a major source of growth not only for the other Northeast Asian economies but also for the United States, Europe and Australasia, a terrorist attack on shipping in the chokepoints of Southeast Asia could have negative repercussions for the world economy as a whole...
