Modelling of Marine Systems

   Mathematical models of marine systems developed in the recent years very extensively. Such models were either research models, which aimed at a better understanding of the systems' dynamics, or they were management models designed to assist the administration of water resources and the fight against pollution. Initially, the models concentrated on physical, chemical or biological processes according to their particular concerns. Then, the increased threat on the environment requiring a more thorough understanding of ecosystems, the models were extended, in an effort to overlap the frontiers between the disciplines and include imperatives from other fields. Exhaustive multidisciplinary models were conceived which were sometimes praised sometimes criticized for their ambition. The prodigious development of numerical techniques and computing facilities, recently, supported the idea that such ambitious models were not unrealistic and could provide a convenient framework for the rational assemblage of the so far dispersed partial models. The book consists of three major parts covering concepts and techniques of marine modelling, the present state of marine modelling, and reports of the working groups and recommendations for future work, correspondingly.

Motor Control Fundamentals

   The word "motors," as stated in the title, represents a diverse and complicated topic of study. There are many different types of motors, and several different methods of converting electrical energy into rotating mechanical energy via electromagne-tism. The focus of this book is to understand the basics of electromagnetic induction theory, three-phase motor theory, single-phase induction motors theory and operation, common motor control circuit schemes and diagrams, and providing information on magnetic relays and contactors, overload units, magnetic motor starters and motor starter circuits, two- and three-wire motor controls, control circuits, variable-frequency drive principles, practice circuits for connecting the actual motor control circuit components from ladder diagrams. This book will mainly cover single- and three-phase induction motors because they constitute the vast majority of motors the construction electrician will encounter in the field.

Surveying and Charting of the Seas

   It is the author's intention that this book serve various purposes, i.e. to give the reader an overall view of the many aspects of the art and science of hydrographic and other types of surveying and charting, while also going deeper into those subjects which seem to require additional attention, or are in need of a more modern approach. Also, where deemed desirable, new subjects have been introduced. At the same time it was considered a necessity not to overlook simpler methods and less complicated equipment, as not every survey vessel has the latest electronic data processing equipment on board with all instruments recording on line. Writing this book has also been done in the hope it will assist hydrographic and other marine surveyors who are faced with the difficult task of starting an efficient hydrographic office and an effective surveying service for their country and who in addition very often have to give guidance to young survey officers, while not having at their disposal the latest sophisticated data collection and processing devices. According to the author there is a need for a treatise which not only discusses the latest equipment and methodologies, but which covers also less complicated instruments and methods to be used in circumstances regularly occurring in daily life on board. As was already said, there are quite a number of handbooks and manuals in which advanced procedures are described related to the science of surveying and charting. What is also needed - and is not overlooked in this book - is advice to the surveyor or hydrographer who urgently needs reliable charts, but who is not (yet) in a position to purchase or to use advanced instruments or equipment. A similar predicament may present itself on board of a naval vessel not especially equiped to carry out hydrographic survey work but, nonetheless, finding itself in need of fast operational surveying in the area of its activities. Also merchant navy officers may, from time to time, be confronted with the need to know more about the water they intend to navigate.

Who Greens the Waves

   This book is the culmination of my PhD-research project. It explores the environmental governance of shipping and offshore oil and gas production from a historical perspective. During the years in which I have studied especially shipping and offshore oil and gas production, the degradation of the marine environment has entered the political agenda of the European Union and its member states, making it a current topic. I am very happy that this book contributes to these questions of the day and that this policy domain will remain the focus of my research for the years to come. Theoretically, this PhD project embraces a topic that has captured my interest since the start of my academic career: how does international and European environmental policy come about? Why and how do states cooperate with each other to solve environmental issues internationally? When the literature took up 'governance' as a key concept in discussing European and international environmental policy making, a key question became: how do states cooperate with each other in an increasingly multi-actor and multi-level setting? And to what extent does international environmental governance still evolve around the state, or have other actors become more important? When I started this PhD research project, my aims were to find empirical evidence for the shifts in governance from international governmental arrangements to innovative global governance arrangements in which market and societal stakeholders play an important role. A second aim was to find a way out of the conceptual confusion that exists about how to analyze the shift to innovative global governance arrangements and the question who is involved in what way in global policy processes. This book is the outcome of my attempt to achieve these aims.

NABCO Adjustment Procedure for MG-800 Governor System

   The file contains various information necessary for proper adjustment of subject governor system. It was released by NABCO Ltd in 2005 and will be of great use for the crew members dealing with the day to day operation and maintenance of this machinery piece. The subject maintenance manual will refer to the normal standard version of the MacGregor ship deck cranes. There may appear some minor differences between individual cranes of the same type, but the general orientation concerning the the hydraulic system arrangement will ofcourse remain the same in all cases so this manual will remain actual and valid in most cases.

Basic Electrical Engineering

   Since the study of аn electrical engineering involves the analysis of the energy transfer from one form or point to another form or point, it is so necessary to discuss the very fundamental ideas of electrical engineering science (such as current resistance, electromotive force and others) prior to starting the actual study of this subject. it is known that the electricity relates with other types of systems like thermal or mechanical. There involves the transfer of electrical energy to different forms of energy or otherwise. To analyse such transfer, it is necessary to revise the S.I. units of measurement of different quantities like work, power, energy etc. in various systems... This book contaings following chapters - Fundamentals of electricity; D.C circuits; Magnetic circuits; Electromagnetic induction; Electrostatics; A.C. fundamentals; Single phase A.C. circuits; Polyphase A.C. circuits; Single phase transformers; Appendix - B-H curve and magnetic losses.
