ASTM F 765—93 R98 — STANDARD SPECIFICATION FOR WILDCATS, SHIP ANCHOR CHAIN

The specification that we are presenting to your attention today addresses the wildcats that are currently utilized in windlasses for hauling in and paying out the anchor chains on board marine vessels and offshore facilities. When ship has been anchored, or anchor has been housed, the chain stopper is used to secure the anchor chain.

The wildcats that are referred to in the present standard specification by ASTM are of the five whelp type and shall to be used with stud link chains conforming to the ABS Grades 1, 2 and 3. The dimensions of these wildcats have been provided for the anchor chains in integral three-millimeter steps, ranging in size from 19 to 104 mm. The dimensions in intermediate steps (1.5 mm) have not been provided in this paper; however, the use of the wildcats of such sizes is also permitted within the scope of the present regulatory document.

The material arrangement in the standard specification is as follows: scope - referenced documents - classification - description of terms - ordering information - materials and manufacture - dimensions - workmanship, finish, and appearance - test methods - inspection - marking - packaging - keywords. As it is the case with all ASTM publications, full coverage of all technical aspects makes the publication practical and useful.

ASTM F 722—82 R98 — STANDARD SPECIFICATION FOR WELDED POINTS FOR SHIPBOARD PIPING SYSTEMS

This standard specification no. F722-82 was first released in 1982 and then got reapproved in 1998 - it covers all typical details of the welded joints that are nowadays in common use when constructing various piping systems on board ships. Such joints may be utilized provided that the WP (welding procedures) proposed for use, were qualified as per the applicable regulations and/or rules.

The publication consists of five parts - the first part defines the scope of the document, while the second part provides the list of referenced documents. The third part provides information on the application, service, limitations, and list of weld joint details. The fourth part of the document explains piping classifications and butt weld reinforcements. The last part of the paper contains keywords. there are several tables in the document providing necessary data, e.g. maximum but weld reinforcement, and figures for better illustration o the technical information, such as the cross-section of the butt joint, etc.

An excellent technical reference for welders and welding engineers, designers and inspectors. You will not only find the requirements to the welding but will also get some minimum knowledge of the basics.

ASTM F 1756—97A — STANDARD GUIDE FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF A FLEET MANAGEMENT SYSTEM NETWORK

This official ASTM guide is released to provide the industry professionals with a good overview and guidance for the proper selection and further implementation of the FMS by ship operators and owners. The abbreviation FMS stands for the Fleet Management Systems. Such system is mission critical 24x265 and is generally a computer system consisting of one or more LITP and one or more SITP, which are the land-based and shipboard information technology platforms, correspondingly. The SITP enables multiple computers on board the ship to share the data and to communicate with the other ships or with the shore base.

The SITP itself consists of several components, such as the hardware, software, data repository, procedures providing the ability to store and transfer data. It is not the actual intention of the authors of this document to deal with all requirements that are applicable to SITP, forming a path for the data for the direct controlling of the operations and conditions of ships or their systems. It shall be possible for all navigation equipment belonging to the Navigational Equipment Bus to be able to operate and display all essential data , being totally independent of the FMS. Same applies to the units resident on the Control, Monitoring and Alarm Bus. All values in this document are in SI units.
