The present publication is one of the most popular and interesting volumes on electronic circuits and deices available today. The effectiveness of the book has already been well recognized and appreciated all around the world not only by the students of engineering but also by the practicing electrical engineers and specialists in electronics who have found it an excellent resource for refreshing their professional technical knowledge.

Written by the world known expert, Professor of Electronic and Communication Engineering Dr. K. Lal Kishore, the publication covers virtually all areas of electronic devices and circuits. The material of the volume is divided into eight separate chapters with the first chapter covering electron dynamics and cathode ray oscilloscope, or CRO for short, together with its practical application. It also derives the math equations that describe the motion.

The second chapter is dealing with the characteristics of the junction diode including conduction and conductivity, donor and acceptor type semiconductors, ionization energy etc. The other chapters of the publication cover such important topics as filters, regulators and rectifiers, transistor characteristics, stabilization and biasing, oscillators and amplifiers. Numerous appendices provide additional info on color codes used for various electronic components, inductors and capacitors, circuit symbols, etc.

The crude oil is maybe the most important cargo of those transported by sea over the last century. It provides people with the energy necessary to drive virtually everything. The present book was written by Captain P. Armitage with the ultimate intention to serve as a mandatory training for the second officers willing to move up to the position of Chief Officer - in fact it will be useful to every single ship officer working on a tanker and standing a cargo watch.

The content of this volume is covering absolutely everything starting from the fundamentals of the crude oil chemistry and up to the economics of today's oil market. Loading and discharge operations are deservedly treated as the critically important activities. When carrying out loading and discharge of the shipboard cargo, the accidents may seriously compromise the safety of the crew members, the ship herself as well as the environment.

Well developed and carefully reviewed plans supplemented with the standing instructions and established emergency procedures will significantly contribute to the success of the cargo operations and provide additional flexibility to the commercial operators. This volume puts decades of the practical experience into a quite concise format which is technical but still reader friendly. A copy of this book shall be in the library of every tanker officer for easy and ready reference at all times.

This is the official training course developed by the specialists of the JUMBO company to cover the heavy cargo handling matters. The material of the course is arranged in three major sections. The first section is dealing with the stability of the ship while the second section has been devoted to lifting heavy cargoes. the last section of the training volume addresses seafastening of the cargo carried on board JUMBO ships.

The booklet opens with the summary of the information related to the ship's stability theory including all associated calculations; the loading and discharging checklist has also been provided. Another issue covered in this section is the incorrect use of the stability pontoons for anti-heeling, and the so-called Kahn Rule for determining the stability when lifting heavy loads.

The second section contains information about stability of lifted cargoes, the stability moment and range, using lifting beams, asymmetric lifting systems, forces in lifting wires and shackles, spreader beams including those connected by means of shackles... This is not even the half of the topics covered in the pages of this useful training booklet. We would definitely recommend this volume to all persons engaged in transportation of the heavy cargoes on board marine vessels, and particularly on JUMBO ships.

The results obtained during the studies that have been conducted in several countries show that different species of plants, bacteria and marine animals will survive in the ballast water commonly carried in the tanks of marine vessels, and they will be alive even after the marine journeys lasting several months or more.

The discharge of the shipboard ballast water or sediment upon arrival of the vessel at port may eventually result in establishing various pathogenes and aquatic organisms that are actually harmful. This, in turn, may lead to serious threats to the human, plant and animal life - and to the marine environment in general.

The potential negative effects of the discharge of shipboard ballast water have already been recognized by the IMO and WHO paying due attention to how the ballast water may contribute into spread of the epidemic bacteria. The present IMO guidelines shall not be treated as the certain solution of the above mentioned problem.

In fact each part of the document would better be viewed as a instrument which will help to improve the situation and minimize all risks commonly associated with the discharge of ballast water, of course when applied correctly...

Engineering and Design

In this article we will talk about the engineering and design in the shipbuilding industry of today. First of all, let's see what exactly the engineering department of the shipyard normally deals with. The engineering department is called upon to aid in preliminary planning due principally to the numerous applicable rules and regulations which must be satisfied and to the complexity of both yard and ship-board equipment, it is important to note that new regulations.

These rules and regulations would normally include internationally recognized regulatory documents published by such entities as, for example, the Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organization (IMCO) and the U. S. Coast Guard (USCG) and many others, have greatly increased the amount of engineering work necessary for both the preliminary and final designs of the ship. Engineering works are normally started at the earliest possible time, even before schedules are prepared. That is very important for the smooth engineering design and subsequent construction of the vessel.

The content of the present guide was developed by the world leading experts in the field with the ultimate intention to facilitate secure and safe seas and improve overall safety in the maritime shipping industry. The authors of the volume made a excellent and very successful attempt to provide the industry with the illustration on the current threat of maritime piracy as well as the armed robbery against vessels in Asian region, with the particular emphasis placed on the incidents that involve the oil cargo theft.

Another goal was to provide required assistance to the ships trying avoid such incidents. It will also cover the port-incident management. The publication will be great when used as a supplement to any national guidebook on armed robbery and maritime piracy. The authors of the volume have taken into account the occurrence of the above mentioned incidents on all types of vessels both at ports and sat sea.

The main body of the publication has been arranged in eight major sections covering the threats to the mariners and established effective ship protection measures, vessels under attack, security planning considerations, risk factors, post-incident reporting etc. It is supplemented with several annexes providing additional information on the reporting forms, definitions, partner organizations and voluntary reporting.
