The Russian Arctic Straits

   Several countries have been interested in the opening of an Arctic sea route north of Russia, which would greatly reduce shipping distances between the ports of Europe, Asia, and North America. Because of modern technology it may be possible to reduce commercial shipping expenses and increase revenues by a transit of the Northern Sea Route. Likely cargoes would include bulk and containerised cargo, comprising fertilisers, fabricated metals, agricultural and forest products, shipped between Northwest Europe and the Far East, and the U.S. and Canadian West Coast. This vision, however, may be unrealistic due to the extreme ice and weather conditions in the eastern section of the Northern Sea Route (NSR), making the long term economics unprofitable, though climate change may be a moderating factor. Only regional use to and from Russian Arctic destinations appear realistic in the short term. Hydrocarbons, oil, and condensates have been shipped regionally between Northwest Russia, Timan Pechora, Yamalo-Nenets and the Yenisey basin. The main problems involving transport along the Northern Sea Route include the cost of insurance, the cost of new vessel design technology, and both an operational and political risk factor. A major concern also relates to the effects such a route may have on the Arctic environment,'' which has been a subject of much study. Furthermore, during the Cold War the Arctic was known for its political sensitivity, being strategically important to both the Soviet Union and the United States. As a consequence there is still considerable controversy over the precise legal status of the Russian Arctic route." Though Russian and Soviet vessels have traversed these waters rather frequently, the passage of foreign vessels has been mostly exceptional.

Submarine Hydrodynamics

   Submarines are very specialised vehicles, and their design is extremely complex. This book deals with only the hydrodynamics aspects of submarines, and a basic knowledge of ship hydrodynamics is assumed. The principles of submarine geometry are outlined in this chapter, covering those terms which are not common to naval architecture, such as: axisymmetric hull; sail; aft body; fore body; control surfaces; casing; and propulsor. Submarines are very specialised vehicles, and their design is extremely complex. This book deals only with the hydrodynamics aspects of submarines, and a basic knowledge of ship hydrodynamics is assumed. Readers are referred to texts such as Rawson and Tupper (2001) for information about surface ship concepts. Although nuclear powered submarines can be much larger than many surface ships, it is traditional to refer to all submarines as "boats" regardless of their size. This convention is retained in this book.

Modelling and Observation of Exhaust Gas Concentrations for Diesel Engine Control

   In spite of the economic crisis of transport sectors such as the aerospace or naval, the automotive sector is facing a really challenging time. The trends in this sector during the past years had been focused on minimizing the pollutants, namely NOs, CO, HC or PM. However, the efforts in the next years are moving towards the C02 reduction, and thus minimizing the fuel consumption without worsening the pollutants. In the case of gasoline engines, the emissions problem is relatively solved since years by the three-way catalyst but for diesel, the use of different after-treatment systems as well as new combustion systems and control improvements are necessary. At the same time, the introduction of new fuel types and the development of the electric or hybrid vehicles introduce indeed new possibilities to the engineers. The diesel engine requires a renewal of the number of information sources available in order to monitor and control all the variables that affect the correct performance of this complex system. A good example is the on-board diagnostics algorithms necessary to monitor the NOx emissions, required for the urea dosing of the selective catalyst reduction systems or useful for the development of direct NOs control. Within this framework, this book intends to give solutions to real problems on the topic of the online estimation of the exhaust engine variables in diesel engines. The reader will find a number of methods and algorithms that cover the main possibilities for inferring the exhaust variables on-board...

Sulzer RTA-53 Diesel Engines Service Bulletin - Variable Injection Timing and Fuel Quality Setting

   In the seventies when fuel consumption gained more importance Sulzer introduced the so called Variable Injection Timing and Fuel Quality Setting (VITand FQS) system on its low speed two stroke engines. The VIT and FQS system performs two main tasks. The VIT part is an automatic function that controls the injection begin depending on the actual engine load and cares for optimum part load fuel consumption. The FQS part is a manual adjustment that is meant to be used to match the injection timing to the quality of fuel used. VIT and FQS have been introduced as standard on RTA engines at first in a mechanical and later in an electronic version. The latter is the only standard system for current RTA engines and will be the main subject of this Bulletin. A retarded injection is one of the measures used on Sulzer RTA engines to comply with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) NOx emission regulations. The applied injection delay depends on engine type and rating and has been introduced in the DENIS-system as a new, load-independent parameter. Therefore the VIT system has gained coasiderable importance with the introduction of the engine tuning complying with the IMO NOx (Oxides of nitrogen) emission regulations on the Sulzer RTA engines. Due to the optimisation character of the VIT function an engine can run both with and without VIT and FQS function without any loss of operability. However, because of its proven beneficial effect on fuel consumption especially at part load it Is advisable to have the VITand FQS system always working during normal engine operation. All RTA engines have been designed for continuous VIT and FQS operation i.e. the use of VIT and FQS keeps the engine parameters well within safe limits. On the latest RTA engine designs complying with the IMO NOx emission regulatioas, the range of FQS adjustment is limited so that NOx emission limits are ensured with any setting of the FQS. This Service Bulletin shall explain the VIT and FQS system in its different design versions and give some general advice on how to check the system and its correct function in order to guarantee maximum availability and thus benefit for the operators.

Mechanical Fastening, Joining, and Assembly

   The second edition of Mechanical Fastening, Joining, and Assembly is presented as a guide and reference to all who engage in the mechanical arts. A decade and a half have passed since the preface to the first edition was written. This passage of time has affirmed many of the ideas expressed in that first edition. Time has also witnessed the development of some interesting, and for our purposes, intellectually important, technical progress in the assembly of products and in the design, manufacturing, and installation of fastener products and procedures. Time has not been idle even during periods when worldwide economic engines were moving at less than full throttle. Ranging from the interest children exhibit in building things with toys such as interlocking blocks, rods, and connecting components to the advanced and sometimes strident adult voices and viewpoints expressed in the media, in academic institutions, and in political and public discourse around the world, a panoramic view of the subject of fastening and its foundational technologies, from the basics to the advanced is timely.

Electric Machines - Modeling, Condition Monitoring, and Fault Diagnosis

   The population of electric motors has greatly increased in recent years, not only in the United States but also in the world market. The world market is expected to be around $16.1 billion in 2011, which is assumed more than 50% growth just within 5 years. Electric motors have been applied to almost every place in our daily life, such as manufacturing systems, air transportations, ground transportations, building air-conditioner systems, home energy conversion systems, various cooling systems in electrical devices, and even cell phone vibration systems. It is also a well-known fact that the electric motors consume more than 50% of whole electrical energy demand in the United States. The annual electrical energy demand in the United States was 3,873 billion kilowatt-hours in 2008, which is expected to be further increased in every year depending on population and economic growth. This data indicates that more than 1,900 billion kilowatt-hours is consumed by electric motors annually in the United States, which is the biggest energy consumption by any single electric device in modern society. With the rapidly increased population and huge electric energy consumption, sophisticated control and reliability of motor operations from a harsh industrial environment has now been a major requirement in many industrial applications. It is especially important where an unexpected shutdown might result in the interruption of critical services such as medical, transportation, or military operations. In those applications where continuous process is needed and where down time is not tolerable, an unexpected failure of a motor might result in costly maintenance or loss of life.

Introduction to Naval Architecture 5th Ed.

   This latest, fifth edition of the "Introduction to Naval Architecture" by E. C. Tupper was published to provide readers with clear understanding of the basic principles of this science. We all know that the naval architecture involves two different tasks - the first one is the analysis of the various individual characteristics of the ship's design, while the second represents the synthesis of a design from above mentioned elements. This analysis calls upon theories and procedures which were developed over the past years. The book addresses all important matters such as flotation and stability, ship form calculations, definitions used, docking, launching, grounding isues, stability regulations, ship resistance and propulsion, seakeeping, ship environments, vibration, noise and schock, structures, design. ship manoeuvring, various ship types.

Classical Mechanics - An Introduction

   For the beginners I have often shown different paths to solutions of a problem, so they might estimate the (dis)advantage of one method over another. Thus, the reader should appreciate the employment of symmetry at an early stage. It is equally important to realise that physics, unlike mathematics, is not an exact science, but an approximation to the mathematical description of processes in nature, usually relying on a number of simplifying assumptions. In selecting the various assumptions the physicist is trained to choose the important over the unimportant effects and to set up a sensibly simple model. In fact, classical mechanics has its limitations, as astronomers found out a long time ago, and nowadays these limitations have been overcome by taking account of relativistic effects. Also, the mechanics of the microscopic world is governed by quantum theory. Thus, I have tried to concentrate on the practical applications of the principles and on the calculational techniques rather than on the construction of a theory as such. Even though the structure and method of theoretical physics is an exciting topic (in particular for the advanced physicist), I believe that it is indispensable to have a hands-on understanding of the theory with its basic results and of the techniques if one wants to handle and apply them in practice. Therefore, this book is an introduction to theoretical mechanics rather than an introduction to formal theoretical physics...

STAB 2000 - 7th International Conference on Stability of Ships and Ocean Vehicles - Launceston

   The very successful series of international conferences on the Stability of Ships and Ocean Vehicles has been running since 1975, and, on behalf of the National Committee, I am very proud that Australia was chosen to host the 7th conference in February 2000. The objectives of the present conference series is to promote a full exchange of methodologies and ideas related to the stability of ships as well as ocean vehicles. It provides an opportunity to professional naval architects, various certifying and inspection authorities, regulatory agencies, capsize prevention researchers, ship and floating platform owners, consultants and operators to present, discuss and listen to improvements in capsize prevention for all sizes and types of floating structures. The most important aspect of any floating object is its ability to remain afloat and upright under all expected conditions. Even this most basic of requirements can elude professionals in the field, usually with very serious consequences. It is therefore vital that all of us who are concerned with the operation and design of ships and ocean vehicles devote the utmost effort to ensuring they are as safe as possible. Only by sharing knowledge and experience can we continue to improve safety, which is the primary motivation for this important conference series.
