One of the most popular classic books on the shipbuilding demonstrating the actual design methods and construction techniques. It was originally published so many years ago in order to serve as a reference book when performing training of the woordworkers and carpenters in the fundamental theoretical aspects of the construction of the wooden vessels.
The author of the volume tried to establish a course useful for the shipbuilders and boatbuilders; he did not try to prepare a complete treatise on the subject so please note that there can be some omissions. However, needless to say that the book will be of great interest for everyone willing to improve their knowledge of ship construction principles, as well as people interested in building ship models.
The book is classic and rare; of course, the shipbuilding of today much differs from the one of last century due to the new technologies developed; however, the theory of the process, naval architecture, mechanics, strength, hydromechanics and other remain unchanged...
This work is dealing with the rick-based approach applied to the assessment of the fire safety in the various maritime composite superstructures. Sometimes it makes sense to substitute steel used for the construction of the maritime structures with the FRP taking into account such advantages as the reduced weight and easier maintenance, of course provided all relevant requirements have been complied with.
A newly introduced methodology in the applicable regulations opens up for the new and innovative design solutions - again provided they have proven safe and complying with the relevant requirements. The present report is intended to provide the ship construction industry with an approach that would be clearly effecting to the fire safety in case of the FRP composite materials utilized for construction.
This is the fragment of the opening chapter of this book. The chapters of the publication cover the SOLAS fire safety related requirements, concept of risk, structural requirements, need and risk analysis for verification, synoptic application of the proposed approach, etc.

In the first release of this Handbook the standard technical overview of the welding processes and necessary guidance to the major welding techniques were provided together with their applications. Subject approach is actually retained in this latest edition of the volume, but the content has been revised and substantially expanded to reflect the recent developments in the field of welding.
The book opens with the comprehensive review of the gas welding processes followed with the professional discussion covering the theoretical basics of the arc welding, including the arc physics and sources of power. After that, several arc welding techniques are discussed, including SAW, MMAW, TIG plus other types. Remaining chapters of the handbook deal with the various types of welding including resistance ald laser plus applications of the different welding techniques to such processes as brazing, cutting, soldering, hardfacing and cladding.
The main content also addresses the general matters of mechanization, welding design, safety issues, distortion, residual stress and other important technical factors. Moreover, the economical factors, e.g. the associated costs, are also covered. This volume confirms its established reputation and remains the remarkably comprehensive yet quite concise intro to all welding processes and their practical applications...
Briefly, the book is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of all techniques that are available in the industry for joining/repair offshore structures. Joining systems not involving the use of welding are discussed first. These engineering systems required for joining procedures are then discussed - pipe handling, design of the hyperbaric chambers etc.
The principal techniques of the underwater welding are then described - wet, one atmosphere plus hyperbaric welding, followed by a clear description of the major effects of environmental pressure on the hyperbaric welding processes. To make this section of the book more comprehensible to the general reader, a brief description of each welding process as it is used in general engineering is included before the modifications required for hyperbaric applications are discussed. Finally, those joining systems not used currently, but which show promise in the lab, are described, followed by some speculation relating to how underwater joining technology might develop over the next few years.
For general information, appendices providing description of the relevant diving technology, basic oceanography and also the methods of research commonly applied for the development of hyperbaric welding techniques are included. Although this book describes the technology of underwater repair at all water depths, it should be recognized that the great majority of offshore repair work is carried out at relatively shallow depths, in the region intermittently covered by the water, known as the "splash zone". This is because the speed of any object dropped from the platform or an adjacent ship is highest at the water line, while wave loadings, corrosion activity and the growth rate of marine life arc all at a maximum just below the surface.
In addition, the possibility of collision between shipping and the platform is also maximized at shallow depths. Thus, numerically, the majority of underwater repairs takes place at shallow depths, although the most economically and technologically significant arc in deeper water, frequently on pipelines.
This manual was developed and released by Avesta contains the recommended practices and stainless steel-relating products. The stainless steel welding is considered a complex combination of the chemistry, geometry, metallurgy and even aesthetics.
