Inmarsat - The SafetyNet Users Handbook

   This fifth edition of the present handbook was prepared and released by Maritime Safety Services with the intention to explain the operation of the International SafetyNET service as an element of the IMO GMDSS. SafetyNET is the service for broadcasting and automatic reception of Maritime Safety Information (MSI) via Enhanced Group Call (EGC) system and its receiving capability is part of the mandatory equipment to be carried by certain SOLAS compliant ships. EGC is the system for broadcasting messages via Inmarsat С satellite communications system and supports two services: SafetyNET and FleetNET. This handbook deals mainly with the distribution of MSI via satellite using the International SafetyNET service. SafetyNET offers the ability to address MSI to a given geographical area. The area may be fixed, as IMO defined NAVAREAs and MEAREAs (there are now 21 areas), coastal warning area, or it may be a user defined circular or rectangular area. MSI is submitted for broadcast using three priorities: Safety - Priority 1, Urgency - Priority 2 and Distress-Priority 3. Aboard ships MSI messages are received by Inmarsat С and mini-C type-approved maritime terminals with EGC SafetyNET capability. The handbook also explains how the mariner can use the SafetyNET service to obtain vital Maritime Safety Information (MSI) tailored to the needs of the own vessel.

Electrical Network Theory

   This book was initially conceived as a revision of Linear Network Analysis by Sundaram Seshu and Norman Balabanian in the summer of 1965. Before the work of revision had actually started, however, Seshu died tragically in an automobile accident. Since then the conceived revision evolved and was modified to such a great extent that it took on the character of a new book and is being presented as such. We wish, nevertheless, to acknowledge a debt to Seshu for his direct and indirect contributions to this book. The set of notes from which this book has grown has been used in a beginning graduate course at Syracuse University and at the Berkeley campus of the University of California. Its level would also permit the use of selected parts of the book in a senior course. In the study of electrical systems it is sometimes appropriate to deal with the internal structure and composition of the system. In such cases topology becomes an important tool in the analysis. At other times onlv the external characteristics are of interest. Then " systems " considerations come into play. In this book we are concerned with both internal composition and system, or port, characteristics. The mathematical tools of most importance are matrix analysis, linear graphs, functions of a complex variable, and Laplace transforms. The first two are developed within the text, whereas the last two are treated in appendices. Also treated in an appendix, to undergird the use of impulse functions in Chapter 5, is the subject of generalized functions. Each of the appendices constitutes a relatively detailed and careful development of the subject treated. In this book we have attempted a careful development of the fundamentals of network theory. Frequency and time response are considered, as are analysis and synthesis. Active and nonreciprocal components (such as controlled sources, gyrators, and negative converters) are treated side-by-side with passive, reciprocal components. Although most of the book is limited to linear, time-invariant networks, there is an extensive chapter concerned with time-varying and nonlinear networks.

Examination of the Intact Stability and the Seakeeping Behaviour of Container Vessels withing the Ballast Condition

   In the years 2008/2009 the world economic crisis caused a reduction in the number of transported TEU, due to a significant decrease in transported goods. Consequently a great number of container vessels had been laid up or were forced to operate with a small amount of cargo on board. In this loading condition container vessels have a very high stability. In many cases their vertical center of gravity is even located below the lightship condition's coordinate. This is due to large amounts of ballast water in wing and double bottom tanks as well as no or only a small amount of cargo located at cargo hold bottom. The high amount of ballast water is needed to obtain an adequate hull and propeller immersion as well as a limitation of the longitudinal bending moments within the hull structure. In the typical loading conditions with higher amounts of cargo, less ballast water is needed ami the stability is lower. Under the described circumstances, several accidents have happened to container vessels during the last years. The accidents caused not only severe damages on ships but also heavily injured ami even killed crew members. They have been thrown through the bridge due to high transversal accelerations caused by heavy roll motions of the ship. This highlights, that modern container ship designs face some problems concerning insufficient seakeeping behavior. Since several accidents have happened to ships sailing under German flag, the BSU analyzed them by default. For three of the accidents, the seakeeping behavior has been examined in detail by order of the BSU at the Institute of Ship Design and Ship Safety at the Hamurg University of Technology (TUHH). This thesis shall examine the seakeeping behavior of several typical container vessels in equivalent environmental conditions.

Standard DNVGL-ST-0023 2014-04 - Competence of Dynamic Positioning Operators

   The DPO shall operate the DP control systems of the vessel working in a possibly hostile environment and in changing weather conditions, judge whether DP Operations can commence, continue or should be suspended and take immediate action if required. The DPO demonstrates that he is fully competent, using the systems / modes that apply to the applicable notation(s). The DPO demonstrates a holistic view of the vessel's management systems and operations and considers the impact of operating under DP on e.g. security vulnerability as well as from a legislative and regulatory point of view. If the DPO is responsible for the vessel's integrity and safety when operating under DP as well as manually in case of DP failure, the DPO must be a STCW qualified deck officer. If the DPO is part of a bridge-team and operates alongside a navigational officer at all times, being a STCW-qualified deck officer is considered best practice and strongly recommended...

Development of Threshold Values for a Minimum Stability Criterion Based on Full Scale Accidents

   In previous researches an intact stability criterion was developed which aims at the determination of sufficient intact stability of a ship in heavy weather. The aim of this dynamic intact stability criterion was to establish a minimum level of stability which should ensure that the remaining capsizing risk in heavy wether shall be as low as reasonably possible. The proposed criterion results in the computation of an index value. To make the criterion practically applicable, threshold values need to be defined for this index to distinguish between safe and unsafe ships or conditions on the one hand and to establish a required minimum level of safety in heavy weather on the other. To establish such a threshold value for the ISEI, we have investigated several full scale capsizing events with appropriate numerical methods and procedures. These methods or procedures are based on the direct computation of the non linear roll motions of the ship in time domain in a natural seaway. Such kind of methods or procedures have been developed during several decades with the special intention to analyze full scale capsizing events for German authorities. If these methods or procedures we have used in our analysis were found to give a reliable prediction of the ship's behaviour in the accident condition, it was then assumed that these methods or procedures will also deliver reliable results in other conditions (which must still be covered by the mathematical formulation of the problem and the related assumptions). This results in the possibility to analyze many situations that might be potentially as dangerous for the ship as the accident condition. Such kind of computations can be used to find the required threshold values for our dynamic intact stability criterion. An accident is an event which definitively proved that the stability condition was dangerous. Therefore, given that our numerical methods deliver the correct answer to the accident situation, then we can assume that the same type of computations for other conditions will give also a reliable answer. If we now use these methods to determine the ISEI- value for a loading condition which has been identified to be unsafe, then we can establish a relationship of the ISEI-value and stability conditions which are not acceptable. Further, we must not neglect the fact that over decades in different countries, a lot of useful knowledge has been generated which resulted in many types of stability criteria. Based on the individual kowledge of the time when such criteria were developed, and also based on the ship types that did exist in those times, these stability criteria represent a sufficient and practical level of safety for those ship types.

Technical Requirements for the Arrangement and Securing of Intl Standard Containers On Board the Ships Intended for Container Transportation

   Russian Maritime Register of Shipping carries out technical supervision based on the present Technical Requirements for the arrangement and securing of the international standard containers on board the ships intended for container transportation, as well as supervision of containers securing devices. Performance of the present TR is mandatory for the ships having in their Classification Certificate as required by 2.3.1, Part I "Classification" of the Rules for the Classification and Construction of Sea-Going Ships an additional characteristic stating that the ship is intended for containers transportation, and is also mandatory for container ships carrying containers on the open deck. The present TR apply to the ships of unrestricted area of navigation and restricted area of navigation R1. Degree of reduction of the said requirements for the ships of restricted area of navigation R2-RSN, R3-RSN and R3 is subject to special consideration by the Register in each particular case. The present TR have been developed as applied to the ISO series 1 containers (set forth in the Register Rules for the Construction of Containers). Other types containers securing is subject to special consideration by the Register taking into account their strength and rigidity. As a rule, fully loaded containers shall be considered. It is permitted to provide containers arrangement and calculate containers securing based on their partial loading. In these cases, the submitted plans of containers arrangement and securing shall specify permissible loading of all containers.
