Guidelines on Application of Marine Ergonomics

   The Guidelines present clear guidance on applying ergonomics in design for lighting, ventilation, noise, vibration and access arrangements. Chapter 1 contains objectives of the Guidelines and related definitions are presented in the Chapter. Chapter 2 explains why the human element is increasingly seen as an important topic and how the regulations that govern shipping are increasingly putting more emphasis on the human element. Chapter 3 presents a rationale for why the human element should be considered for the recommendation criteria - lighting, ventilation, vibration, noise and access arrangements - and present more detailed structural arrangement recommendations for each of the criteria - lighting, ventilation, vibration, noise and access arrangements. Annex A provides designers with measurement values for some of the criteria that can aid designers when applying design recommendations. They provide designers with additional information that can assist in making design judgements. Annex В presents a list of relevant standards that bear some relation to good ergonomic practice.

WWII US Landing Craft In Action

   The Landing Craft, Vehicle Personnel was called the most important weapon to come out of World War Two. This was due to its ability to land troops and equipment on an enemy shore, withdraw, reload, and return numerous times to resupply the beachhead. The LCVP was a development of the earlier LCV and LCP and was also designed by Andrew Jackson Higgins of New Orleans, Louisiana. The LCVP was constructed entirely of wood, with the exception of the steel bow ramp. This craft was 35 feet 9 inches in overall length, with a maximum beam of 10 feet 6 inches. Its draft was rated at 3 feet 5 inches forward when fully loaded and 2 feet 2 inches forward when light. The LCVP displaced 15,000 pounds lightly loaded, 18,500 pounds at hoisting weight, and 26,600 pounds fully loaded. Either a sling or davits on the parent ship could hoist the LCVP. It had a maximum speed of 12 knots light and nine knots fully loaded. Power was provided by a 225 HP Gray Marine 64HN9 six-cylinder diesel engine. The range on 180 gallons of onboard fuel was 110 nautical miles at full power and full load. A few LCVPs were powered by 250 HP Hall-Scott gasoline engines and were primarily used for training. The LCVP normally carried a crew of three: a coxswain, a mechanic , and a crew hand. The latter two were also responsible for manning the .30 caliber M1919 machine guns when they were fitted. The gunners sat in cockpits situated just forward of the splashboard on the aft deck. The LCVP's cargo well was 17 feet 3 inches in length and 7 feet 10 inches at maximum width, with an interior height of 5 feet. The bow ramp was operated by wire cables attached to an electric winch located on either side of the aft interior hull. The starboard side bulkhead contained the emergency tiller and a ramp equalizing sheave and cable guard. The exterior hull sides were fitted with .2 inch Special Treatment Steel armor protection for the crew, troops, and cargo.

Guidelines for Application of Ballast Water Treatment Systems on Ships

   The Machinery Team of the Korean Register of Shipping released these Guidelines in 2010. The world's traffic volume have drastically increased over the last decades and it resulted in serious damages to the environment caused by invasive species contained in vessels' ballast water. As a result of almost fifteen years of negotiations between all IMO members, the Ballast Water Management Convention was adopted in 2004. There are still many questions related to the installation of the BWTS (Ballast Water Treatment Systems) on ships, raised by shipyards and shipowners as the effective date of the Convention is approaching. Subject Convention will enter into force once it has been adopted by not less that thirty IMO members with their combined fleet not less than 35% of the GT of the world's merchant shipping. KR outlined all reference information for the selection and installation of such treatment systems by vessel type.

The Coen & Hamworthy Combustion Handbook

   The last Coen & Hamivorthy Combustion Handbook was written by Arthur H. Light in 1920.' In the late 1980s, Coen authorized the publication of a new combustion handbook at the request of its customers, but day-to-day work never allowed time for the book. The origins of this book started during a business trip. In early 2000, one of the editors (Steve) was on a trip to visit a major Coen customer with a young Coen application engineer. During dinner, the engineer told Steve a story of a number of engineers debating the units of molecular weight for hours. It was at this moment that Steve decided a unique kind of book was needed that did not exist for combustion engineers. The book needed to be all inclusive and cover the very basics in building block form up to more complex combustion topics for everyone involved in combustion systems to use. This book is designed for all engineers and professionals involved in the field of industrial and utility combustion systems. It is roughly divided into two parts, consisting of a total of 17 chapters, sequentially covering relevant and important combustion engineering basics and then specific computations and applications. Each chapter is roughly organized from simple to more complex, thus allowing the reader to absorb as much as they may need before moving on to the next chapter. Practical examples are also included.

IMO Conventions - Effective Implementation - IMO World Maritime Day 2014

   This publication has been recently released by the International Chamber of Shipping, whose principal function is declared to be representing views of the shipping industry in the various International Maritime Organization's committees as new maritime regulations are developed. However, the adoption of the international conventions by Diplomatic Conferences is only one side of the question. These conventions can come into force only once they have been taken forward for ratification by government officials. Only after that, the conventions can be implemented and enforces in practice.

Acoustic Fish Reconnaissance

   Commercial reconnaissance of fish and other aqualic ilems is achieved by various methods and means. One of the main technical means of search and reconnaissance is acoustic location. Acoustic fish location has recently been widely applied to fisheries. It enables efficient investigation of wide expanses of water, location of fish concentrations, determination of their density and depth, estimation of the commercial significance, and a targeted catch. Acoustic technique has proved to be indispensable to fish reconnaissance and fisheries. Mass application of acoustic equipment on search and commercial vessels has made it possible to increase the efficiency of fishing and targeted trawling of concentrations by commercial fleets, thereby enhancing the industrial exploitation of the World Ocean resources. The modern development of fish location is characterized by the aspiration to a wider practical application of the acoustic method of biomass estimation. This has been motivated by slock reduction of some basic species and by the introduction of 200-mile fishery zones on continental shelves. In the near future, wide-scale inculcation of the acoustic method of biomass estimation should lead to an updated system of observation and control in fisheries, which, in turn, will promote greater efficiency in the exploitation of marine resources. For scientific search and fishing purposes, there are many acoustic instruments that allow fish detecting at practically any depth. There are instruments for estimating the density of concentrations, their size composition, and their movement direction and speed. The application of locating equipment under various conditions contributes a great deal to both theoretical and practical investigations. All this enabled developing and deepening the theory of fish location, improving the fish-finding technique as well as the methods of its use. A myriad of publications deal separately with the theoretical, technical, and practical aspects of fish location. The various applications of acoustic instruments in fisheries are presented; questions of species, size, and quantitative interpretation of readings arc considered. The results of these studies arc given, in particular, in the proceedings of the International Symposia and Conferences on Fisheries Acoustics and in a great number of separate papers. Specific aspects of the overall problem of acoustic fish reconnaissance are considered in the books. However, until now. there has not been any work that presents the subject systematically, detailing all major aspects of applying acoustic equipment in commercial fish reconnaissance and offering sufficient analysis of the possibilities of fish-finding technique...

Industry Recommendations for ECDIS Training

   This guidance is intended to address the major issues of competency and training for Electronic Chardt Display and Information Systems - ECDIS - it was prepared by a special industry group coordinated by The Nautical Institute. A series of meeting was held by this group, comprised of the leading international maritime industry organisations, since ECDIS had given rise to confusion in regard to training. The ECDIS-related amendments STCW Convention made in 2010 are still not in force and will takefull effect only in 2017. Thus, it has been recommended that approved training be undertaken before that in order to ensure that all watchkeepers meet all STCW requirements prior to sailing on the vessels with ECDIS installed on them.

Facts Worth Knowing About Electronics for Hydraulics

   The purpose of this training booklet is to give hydraulics technicians in service centers and sales departments enough basic knowiiedge on electncal and electronic circuits and supplemented by some practical exercises to enable them to find and remedy failure in integrated hydraulic and electrical installations and systems of which Danfoss products are a constituent part and to perform replacement of a defective component. It is thus not our intention to give anybody the belief that this booklet will enable you to go home and repair the colour television or even the hi-fi stereo set. They have the contact dangerous high volt area of 42 -1000 volts. It is our hope that the hydraulic technician's fear, if any, of touching leads, switches and terminals will disappear. The voltage area in the succeeding is the contact harmless from 0 to 42 volts, which means no electric shock. Well, there may be a few sparks if you are a bit awkward with tools or leads thus blowing a fuse, but the only thing which may give noticeable electric shocks in mobile installations is the ignition system of a petrol engine or the AC/DC power supply of an industrial plant. Comparing what is going on in the circuit of a direct current (DC) circuit and in a hydraulic system and furthermore companng the symbols with one another you will soon realize that there are quite logical similanties between the well-known and the new unknown. This will facilitate reading electric diagrams which is a condition of understanding the function of the system as it is also the case with the hydraulic system. In order also to understand what is roughly going on in the small electronic products used together with e.g. proportional valves, simple electronic circuits will also be explained. For this purpose we shall naturai)y mainly use the electnc and electronic components contained in our sales programme and the illustrations figured in our catalogues and tech notes. In the following chapter, comparisons will be made as far as possible between the electric and the hydraulic symbols which approximately have the same function. Besides international standards there are also many national standards. You will frequently come across small differences in the symbol for the same thing; well, some companies even apply their own "standards". As there are not symbols for everything either and since the variety of components and principles are rapidly increasing the degress of liberty for combining symbols and perhaps "inverting" new ones are extensive and there are also examples to that effect. Sometimes, you will have to use your imagination a little when reading diagrams and drawing.
