All articles of the International Conference, RINA. One of the ways how the human element makes an impact on a large scale is through inclusion of ergonomic requirements in the Rules published by Classification Societies. This can usually be achieved by either introducing these specific requirements into the Classification Rules or by making the existing Rule requirements with human element implications more explicit.
However, surveyors who assure Rule compliance, often have quite poor or even no any knowledge of the human element... The present pack contains numerous papers presented during the International Conference held in 2011. It starts with the paper describing the human element competency that is required for design appraisal, followed by the documents covering the human factor role in the investigation of marine casualties, human factor design, extended simulation runs and performance of seamen, noise effect on human performance, performance and fatigue issues in bridge and ECR watchkeeping, perception of risk, mapping of work areas, habitability assessment, shock mitigation seat test/evaluation, marine ergonomic design enhancement though digital human modeling, crew innovation on board short-sea vessels etc.
This publication contains the most important documents from the International Conference on CM in Marine Engineering held some years ago in Portugal. Today, the computational methods are considered as one of the essential tools of engineering in general, and this would include a huge area of professional interest in various marine applications, such as offshore and marine industries, as well as engineering challenges relating to the renewable energies and marine environment protection.
Subject conference included eight lectures and eighty—six presentations that have been grouped into ten thematic sessions covering nearly all relevant topics of today's marine engineering. The present volume contains sixteen selected papers addressing fluid—structure interactions, computational fluid dynamic applied to offshore, various isogeometric methods, seakeeping and manoeuvring, offshore and marine renewable energy, issues relating to propulsion and cavitation, hydrodynamics of ships.
The world recognized experts took part in selecting the papers sharing their experience and professional expertise. Check the information presented in the book and stay updated with all recent developments.
The content of this volume bases on the materials that have been presented in the course of the international conference hosted by the Centre d’Océanologie of Marseille in 2008; it covers a wealth of all hot topics that were related to the ways of interaction of the mankind with the marine environment. The chapters of this book present work on the key areas of oceanography.
It features the most recognized scientific works by the world leading researchers in the field of oceanography from Japan and France and demonstrates the strength of the links between the two scientific communities. The materials have been arranged into six main sections. The first section is dedicated to the aquaculture and covers the newly developed methods for seed culture, quality control of the cultured fish, genetically modified fish, salmon resource creation etc. The second section addresses the artificial reefs and touches the legal aspects, new experiences and developments.
The next section deals with the marine biological diversity and covers biological invasion, adaptation and distribution issues. The remaining three sections deal with the coastal managements, observation of the marine environment, and physical, biogeochemical, biological and chemical functions. At the end of the book there are lists of participants, oral presentations and numerous photographs.
The publication contains the proceedings of the international conference dedicated to the marine pollution by oil. Man has always influenced the surrounding environment, but at the very beginning the traces of people's activities were almost not noticeable and the effects of those activities to the equilibrium of the eco-system were not serious at all.
As soon as the human started to use the tools, people were able to influence their surroundings in much more drastical way, and that is actually the time when the things started to go wrong. The environment condition we have today is the result of people's activities. The first section of the title is dealing with chemical/physical behavior of oil in marine environment and with the associated biological processes, while the second chapter addresses the effects of oil and its compounds on the eco-systems, populations and species.
The third section of the volume provides readers with the results obtained during the monitoring of both biotic and abiotic compartments of marine eco-systems. And the fourth section is dedicated to the several specific cases of the risk management and analysis on the basis on existing scientific technical knowledge. Definitely recommended title for those willing to be up-to-date with all happenings in the field of marine science.
This is a nice compilation of the proceedings of the papers that have been presented in the course of the Third ISSW and summary of discussions. One of the main objectives of that event was to promote the maximum possible exchange of technical information directly related to the research and developments in ship stability as well as operational safety.
This may be achieved through the in-depth discussions by the world respected experts. The first of the papers provides a sort of intro to the numerical modeling of the vessel motions and usage of such models in the analysis of the ship's intact stability. The author of the article has presented a good discussion of various important and actual aspects that shall form a part of the whole process of modeling, namely the ship system, environment, excitation and response, supplemented with a very brief overview of the techniques used for modeling of the hydrodynamic forces.
The main emphasis has been put on quality assurance and validation of various numerical modeling techniques. Among the topics that have been covered during that workshop there were application of various non-linear systems dynamics to vessel stability, numerical/physical modeling of intact/damage stability, some special ship stability problems etc.
RINA International Conference - Naval Submarines and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles - 2011. Topics discussed in the course of the conference - Towards an automated active unmanned underwater vehicles docks on a slowly moving submarines, a submarine concept design, underwater gliders, evaluation of the maneuvering performance of the x-plane submarines, hydrodynamic design implications for submarines operating close to the surface, United States submarine concept design tool, construction materials for small sized submarines, alternative propulsion options for nuclear underwater vehicles, and many more.
Let us start with the first one, dedicated to the development of the integrated SES (submarine escape systems) - it provides readers with the review of the tower escape systems, addresses the geometry and ergonomics of the tower, pressurization, flood and draining matters, testing, acceptance and further support. The submarine escape is considered the very latest resort in case of the underwater vehicle becoming fully disabled - though rescue is of course the preferred option in the majority of instances, it may not be possible in some cases. Here are the operation and acquisition requirements...
RINA International Conference - Warships 2009. This compilation contains of the selected interesting topics that were discussed in the course of the subject conference, for example Aircraft tie-down points for the affordable aircraft carrier - Introduction - Significance - Design approach - Cost savings - Meeting the requirements - Conclusions; Development, design of the rudders/propellers as well as hydrodynamic design of the aircraft carriers of Queen Elizabeth class; Optimizing the ship-air vehicle interface using the simulation method; Frigate aviation of the future; Real options reasoning in defense acquisition; The vessel design challenge of naval UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles).
The opening topic was dedicated to the development of the world famous aircraft carriers, meaning the ones belonging to the "Queen Elizabeth" class. The corresponding paper presented at the conference, provided the participants of the event with brief but thorough technical description of the key aspects of the advances involved, and also describes the associated alliance arrangements.
The shipbuilding strategy applied in that case did involved the construction of the big fully outlined blocks at different locations throughout the country; subject blocks were then transferred to Rosyth for assembly and integration...
