LECTURES ON SHIP MANOEUVRABILITY

The book opens with a section dedicated to the general differential equations relevant to the dynamics of ships, and the aim of this section is the derivation of the equations covering the general body motion in both inertial and body-fixed reference systems with/without principle axis; here, the author has paid particular attention to the acting forces and moments that commonly arise from the acceleration through the water.

The second section addresses the equations related to the maneuvering of the vessels with three freedom degrees, including systems of coordinates, aims and assumptions of the ship maneuvering theory, all equations and exercises for easier understanding of the theory. The next section is dealing with the determination of the added masses, while the fourth section describes the steady maneuvering forces, including their representation and experimental determination, again with some exercises.

The sixth section covers the forces acting on the ship rudders including their general representation and determination of the associated coefficients plus the interaction between the propeller and rudder of the vessel. The remaining sections of the volume are dealing with the yaw stability, transversal forces acting on propeller plus the associated yaw moment, maneuverability diagram, application of CFD methods for the maneuverability problems, and other valuable and important information.

LEGENDS AND SUPERSTITIONS OF THE SEA AND OF SAILORS IN ALL LANDS AND AT ALL TIMES

Very rare book first published in 1885, now digitized by Google, Legends and Superstitions of the Sea and of Sailors in All Lands and at All Times was written by Fletcher S. Bassett, Lieutenant of U.S. Navy. It is culturally important as it sheds the light on many almost loss myths and stories related to the sailing.

The characters involved include the Gods, Saints and Demons of the sea, wind-makers and storm-raisers, sea monsters and sea serpents, sea-giants and dwarfs, storm-raising deeds, and many others.

LIQUIFIED PETROLEUM GAS TANKER PRACTICE

The main purpose of the author of this publication was to provide all interested people with some sort of guide to safe and efficient transportation of the LPG and ammonia; up to now, the coverage of ammonia transportation has never been covered in any single book. We do hope that it will be very useful not only to the personnel directly involved in operating the gas carriers but also to the operating staff of the gas terminals where such products are handled.

Though some treatment has been provided to the equipment used, this publication shall not be considered as the pure technical guide. The author tried to  examine the most important technical problems associated with the transportation and handling of the LPG/ammonia cargoes and cover some technical aspects of the running of LPG carriers. It shall be noted that at all stages the detail procedures to follow are depending upon the conditions under which the cargo will be loaded/discharged and carried - this can be done with the gas being fully-pressurized, semi-pressurized or fully-refrigerated (at regular atmospheric pressure).

The book is arranged in three parts, first two deal with the pressurized and fully-refrigerated ships while the third part concentrates on the cargo calculations, safety matters and recommendations. The technical information is supplemented with the glossary of the terms used.

LLOYD'S MIU HANDBOOK OF MARITIME SECURITY

There were numerous significant changes that occurred to the global maritime security; while some of these changes were necessary and even overdue, others did result in the situations where beneficiaries were the providers of the security services and associated equipment.

And against subject background, this publication is setting out to provide the reality check, bringing together a broad range of various perspectives of the critically important maritime issues collected from all parts of the world. The book contains chapters exploring the operational and also legal realities of the maritime security measures implemented straight after 9/11. The publication is mainly aimed at the people having serious interest in various dimensions of the newly introduced maritime security measures.

Above mentioned interest may be a general interest in the field of maritime security or a specific interest, for example ones directly relating to the implementation of ISPS Code, executing the practical security measures both in ports and at sea, or in the assessment of the potential security risks and threats treated as inherent in the realm of today's international shipping. The author of this volume strongly hope that the readers of all categories will find something of professional interest for them in the present document.

LLOYDS REGISTER LNG BUNKERING INFRASTRUCTURE SURVEY 2014

Below are some of the questions addressed within this LR paper: would you see yourself a driver of changes with regard to the use of the liquid natural gas as a fuel? today, is your port providing or at least planning to provide the infrastructure for LNG bunkering for the short-sea or local shipping? in July 2011, the IAPH (standing for the International Association of Ports and Harbours) launched a new project of developing guidelines for the LNG bunkering in ports, so does is your port participate in the project? what bunkering facilities (of what type) are currently provided in your Port for gas fuelled ships - or, if there are no such facilities at the moment, what are you planning to provide in the future? what is the timeframe for LNG bunkering operations to begin at your port? what are the anticipated sources of fuel for LNG bunkering and in what volumes will the fuel be provided? what kind of infrastructure are planned to be developed in your port for LNG fuel supply to the port? what will be the expected proportion of the gas fuel of the total volume in your port? in general, would you be considering the liquid gas as a bunker fuel for deep-sea shipping in the next years? which type of ships would you think to be best suited for such bunkering at your port and why?
