Wartsila - Sulzer RTA-T Technology Review   This Technology Review released by Wartsila Corporation is, actually, a very brief guide to the benefits and technical features of the Sulzer RTA48T-B, RTA68T-B, and RTA58T-B low-speed marine diesel engines, herein collectively referred to as the Sulzer RTA-T marine diesel engines. The exhaust valve actuation and common-rail fuel injection issues residign to RT-Flex58T-B engine, have not been covered in this publication. Instead, the present Review focuses on the RTA-T engines with conventional camshaft-based systems, though some references to the RT-flex58T-B have been made where applicable.

Westview Sailing's Online RYA Day Skipper Shorebased Navigation Course - Fixing A Position
   Today, we will have a look at Fixing a Position. When we are at sea, there are two important things we need to know - where are we and how do we get from here to where we want to get to? Today, of course, with the digital readout 24x7 of our latitude and longitude from our boat's GPS and from each crew member's handheld GPS plotter, we know precisely where we are, and we should and do use this information all the time. But we also need to back it up we something we may rely on when all the electrical equipment fail...

Westview Sailing's Online RYA Day Skipper Shorebased Navigation Course - Estimated Position
   Welcome to Westview Sailing's Online RYA Day Skipper Shorebased Navigation Course. I am Duncan Wales, RYA instructor, and author of the seamanship and boat handling articles. I will be taking you through the exercises. Today, we are going to look at the Estimated Position. Establishing where we are at sea is absolutely key and, as long as we have charted marks we can see, we can work up very accurate position. As we move further away from the land, it gets harder, and this is where Estimated Position comes into play...

Guidance for the Prevention of Rollover in LNG Ships
   The primary objective of this publication is to inform and advise the operators and owners of LNG carriers about the issues surrounding rollover. This guidance is specifically applicable to LNG ships as well as to LNG ships acting as floating storage vessels, LNG Regasification Vessels (LNGRV) and Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRU) if no countermeasures are in place. For conventional, onshore LNG receiving terminals, the issues are generally well understood and suitable mitigation methods are in place. For LNG ships, the circumstances leading to rollover are quite unusual, but rollover has occurred and therefore this information paper seems appropriate.

All The World's Fighting Ships 1947-1995
   This is the last volume of the Conway's series dedicated to the world's fighting ships. Now it is dealing with the period of time between 1947 and 1995. In this book you will find all the fighting ships grouped by countries and listed in alphabetical order, including submarines. All latest developments have been covered in this title. Some light was shed on the Gulf War, as it involved the biggest naval deployment since the World War Two.

All The World's Fighting Ships 1922-1946
   This volume is the second of a series begun by Conway's All the World's Fighting Ships 1860-1905, which dealt with a period for which there was little existing published material. Therefore it was only necessary to explain how - rather than why - the subject was covered. For the 1922-46 period there are already many reference books on warships, and so a few words about the aims of this volume are in order. Available published works fall into three basic categories, all of which have some positive disadvantages from the point of view of the student or enthusiast: 1 - Yearbooks and annuals. These have virtually no access to primary sources; they are also subject to security restrictions and, often, intentionally misleading official information put out for propaganda purposes. Yearbooks naturally concentrate on what is new, and so there is rarely any incentive to correct data in retrospect. 2 - Pocket-books on navies or ship types. These are little more than fleet-lists, with no space to devote to the design background or general naval developments. 3- Monographs and detailed studies. This category contains many fine works of extreme importance in their own right, but by no means all navies and ship types have benefited from such studies (very few of the smaller navies have been covered, and even US cruisers are still without a definitive technical history). Therefore, even if an avid enthusiast could afford to collect all available books, there would still be gaps in their coverage...

All The World's Fighting Ships 1860-1905
   The period 1860-1905 witnessed an unprecedented advance in warship design, but the interest in this development has always been hampered by the lack of a reliable single source. In fact there is very little information in print, and not even an accessible class list before the advent of the famous yearbooks towards the end of the period. Even these are often inaccurate and, of course, cannot benefit from hindsight in their evaluation of ship designs. All the World's Fighting Ships was originally designed to fill this need for a very basic list of classes and their particulars, but it soon became obvious that far more information could be uncovered. With the documentary material now available it has been possible to give accurate assessments of many ship designs for the first time and to put the rapidly-changing technology into a proper historical context. Unlike the contemporary naval annuals, the treatment of each class in this book is related to the size of ship and the importance of the navy, rather than taking the form of a similar and sketchy reference for every vessel. The result, we feel, is a substantial reference work.

Fatigue and Fracture - Understanding the Basics
   This book deals with the fatigue and fracture of engineering materials. Although modem fatigue analysis and fracture mechanics are mathematical disciplines, and mathematical rigor is normally found in texts on fatigue and fracture mechanics, I have endeavored to construct a more basic book that balances the major points of fatigue and fracture analysis without burdening the reader with too much complex mathematical development. This book is ideal for the engineer with a basic knowledge of materials that is just starting to be involved with either failure analysis or fatigue and fracture analysis. It also provides a sound technical groundwork for further study of more advanced texts. This book is useful for the experienced failure analyst that needs a more thorough background in fatigue and fracture mechanics, or for the fatigue and fracture engineer that needs to know more about failure modes.
