  10. Numerical Research of the Viscous Effect of the Bilge Keel on the Damping Moment

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Bilge keels are effective passive devices in mitigating the rolling motion, and the usage of them covers almost all the sea going vessels. This paper focuses on the viscous effect of the bilge keel, ignored the effect of the free surface and the effect of the ship hull, for the general viscous characteristic of the bilge keel. In order to investigate the viscous effect of the bilge keel on the total damping moment, a special 2 dimensional numerical model, which includes a submerged cylinder with and without bilge keels, is designed for the simulation of forced rolling. Three important factors such as bilge keels width, rolling periods, as well as maximal rolling angles are taken into account, and the viscous flow field around the cylinder is simulated by some codes based on the viscous method in different conditions, in which the three factors are coupled. Verification and validation based on the ITTC method are performed for the cylinder without bilge keels in the conditions of different rolling periods and maximal rolling angles. The primary calculation of damping moment induced by the cylinder with 0mm, 4mm, and 10mm width bilge keels shows some interesting results, and a systematic analysis is conducted. The analysis of the damping moment components suggests there is phase difference between the damping moment induced by the cylinder and the bilge keels, and when the bilge keels width reaches a special size, the total damping moment is mitigated. The calculation of the damping moments induced by the cylinder with some larger bilge keels are also performed, and the results suggest that, the damping moment induced by the bilge keels is increased rapidly and becomes the dominant part in the total damping moment while the width of the bilge keels are increased, but the damping moment induced by the cylinder is not changed significantly. Some illustration of the vortices formation and shedding is included, which is the mechanism of the damping

    1991-01-01

    STS-44 Mission Specialist (MS) James S. Voss works under the middeck subfloor of Atlantis, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 104, to repair humidity separator leakage problems. Voss is surrounded by several water tanks and a maze of shuttle wiring and plumbing. Voss earned the nickname of 'Bilge Man' because of his time spent on the lower deck tending to the leakage problem. This is the first photo released of a crewmember in this area of the shuttle.

    为了给船舶舱底水溢油鉴别提供一种实用有效的分析手段,在3个船舶舱底水中分别取可疑溢油油样US、1S、2S,采用气相色谱质谱法(GC-MS)对3个可疑油样和一个模拟溢油油样EUS进行了测定数据分析,通过正构烷烃相对浓度分析、诊断比值分析和模糊诊断分析,最终确定了溢油源为US.实验结果表明,采用GC-MS测定的实验数据和分析方法合理,可为船舶溢油鉴别提供帮助.%In observation of application of the gas chromatography-mass spectrography ( GC-MS) to the source identification of ship bilge water, analyses of the data were carried out on three suspected oil spill sam-ples (US, 1S, 2S) from ship bilge water and one simulated oil spill sample (EUS). Measurements were conducted on such aspects as the relative concentration of n-alkanes, diagnostic ratios, similarity matrix of relative concentration as well as the clustering analysis diagram. It shows that the results from GC-MS could provide reliable information for the identification of ship oil spill. Conclusions were drawn that the GC-MS method is applicable to identifying the source of the ship bilge water.

  13. 加装舭龙骨对千吨级深V船型静水阻力和横摇运动的影响%Effects of bilge keel on a one-thousand-ton deep-vee monohull with calm water resistance and rolling motion

    2015-01-01

    为改善深V船型在低速下的横摇,以千吨级深V船型为研究对象,研究在其舯部减摇鳍前、后位置加装舭龙骨对其静水阻力和横摇运动的影响.首先,通过数值模拟计算对深V船型无舭龙骨方案、加装舭龙骨的各个方案的耐波性进行比较,掌握舭龙骨距离折角线不同安装位置和不同舭龙骨宽度对深V船型横摇运动的影响.然后,根据数值计算结果考虑工程可实施性,以大舭龙骨宽度、等舭龙骨面积及不同安装角度设计这3个舭龙骨方案完成横摇衰减试验并优选出1个舭龙骨方案.最后,对该优选方案开展静水阻力试验和不规则波中的运动响应试验.试验结果表明,千吨级深V船型加装舭龙骨后,其静水阻力增加量不大于5%,减摇效果达30%以上.%Deep-vee monohull can offset the wave strength at the bottom of the hull, increasing the pitch damping and improving the pitch, surge, and vertical acceleration, reducing the slamming and deck wet-ness, all of which lead to better longitudinal sea-keeping performance. However, the roll at slow speed does not show any significant improvement. Aiming at the problem, fixing a bilge keel onto the middle part of the deep-vee monohull could improve the seakeeping performance, especially the roll of the ship in waves. In this paper, a one-thousand-ton deep-vee monohull's hydrodynamic performances with different bilge keel projects are numerically simulated, which guides the design of bilge keel projects for model tests. Then, three actual projects are designed for model test, whose results of seakeeping model tests reveal that the best project has a resistance performance increment less than 5%, and the seakeeping performance, espe-cially the roll of the ship, has a 30%improvement.

  13. Towing tank tests for surface combatant for coupled pitch and heave and free roll decay motions

    Science.gov (United States)

    Irvine, Martin, Jr.

    Towing-tank experiments are performed for an advancing surface combatant in free roll decay and coupled pitch and heave motions. For free roll decay experiments, results are presented for motions (surge, sway, heave, roll, pitch and yaw), forces (resistance, sway and heave), moments (pitch and yaw), phase-averaged velocities (U, V and W) for measurement region near bilge keel and free surface elevations. For coupled pitch and heave experiments, results are presented for pitch and heave transfer functions, and pitch and heave phase angles. The geometry of interest is DTMB model 5512, which is a 1/46.6 scale geosym of DTMB model 5415 (DDG-51), with L = 3.048 m. The experiments are performed in a 3 x 3 x 100m towing tank equipped with a plunger-type wavemaker. The measurement systems include Krypton contactless motion tracker, 4-component load cell, towed 2-D particle image velocimetry (PIV) system, and servo wave probes with 2-D traverse. Uncertainty assessment following standard procedures is used to evaluate the quality of the data. Pitch and heave transfer functions and phase angles collapse to a single value independent of wave steepness. Free roll decay results show the addition of bilge keels to a ship model increases roll period and roll damping. Results show non-linear roll decay for Fr ≤ 0.138, a transition region for 0.190 ≤ Fr ≤ 0.340, and linear roll decay for Fr ≥ 0.410 for both without and with bilge keels. Phase-averaged flow-field velocity results show the evolution and subsequent decay of the bilge keel vortex. The vortex trails the motion of the bilge keel rotating clockwise for counter-clockwise model rotation (rolling to port) and rotates counter-clockwise for clockwise model rotation (rolling to starboard). The phase-averaged wave-field resembles the steady wave pattern (Kelvin wave pattern) with a superimposed oscillation due to the rolling motion of the model. As the model rolls, alternating crests and troughs radiate from the hull

  15. Test Studies of the Resistance and Seakeeping Performance of a Trimaran Planing Hull

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Towing tank tests in calm water were performed on a trimaran planing hull to verify its navigational properties with different displacements and centres of gravity, as well as to assess the effects of air jets and bilge keels on the hull’s planing capabilities, and to increase the longitudinal stability of the hull. Hydrostatic roll tests, zero speed tests, and sea trials in the presence of regular waves were conducted to investigate the hull’s seakeeping ability. The test results indicate that the influence of the location of the centre of gravity on the hull resistance is similar to that of a normal trimaran planing hull; namely, moving the centre of gravity backward will reduce the resistance but lower the stability. Bilge keels improve the longitudinal stability but slightly affect the resistance, and the presence of air jets in the hull’s channels decreases the trim angle and increases heaving but has little effect on the resistance. Frequent small-angle rolling occurs in waves. The heaving and pitching motions peak at the encounter frequency of , and the peaks increase with velocity and move towards greater encounter frequencies. When the encounter frequency exceeds, the hull motion decreases, which leads to changes in the navigation speed and frequency.

  16. Seabirds and Atlantic Canada's ship-source oil pollution : impacts, trends, and solutions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It is estimated that 300,000 seabirds die annually in Atlantic Canada as a result of illegal discharges of oil from ships. Chronic oil pollution along the southeast coast of Newfoundland has not been reduced in the last 20 years. The species most affected is the thick-billed murre which over winters on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and breeds in the Canadian Arctic. Populations of the bird may decline in the next 2 decades if current mortality levels do not decrease. It was argued that fines and enforcement efforts in Atlantic Canada are lax compared to other countries and many ship operators dump their bilges in the coastal areas of Atlantic Canada. The World Wild Life Fund recommends that Canada follow the example of other countries and increase year-round enforcement, impose higher fines, and establish a convenient on-land oil disposal facility. These simple measures could reduce bilge-oil dumping at sea. 78 refs., 4 tabs., 5 figs

  3. Influence of oily wastes on the pyrolysis of scrap tire

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Highlights: • Hazardous oily wastes generated from ships was converted to useful fuel. • Fuel characteristic of oil derived scrap tire was improved. • Co-pyrolysis of scrap tire with oily wastes showed an environmental alternative to direct combustion. - Abstract: The co-pyrolysis of scrap tires with oily wastes from ships (bilge water oil and oily sludge) was studied to investigate the effect of oily wastes on the pyrolysis of scrap tire. Co-pyrolysis experiments were carried out in a fixed bed reactor in the absence and the presence of catalyst at 500 °C. The catalysts used in the pyrolysis were a commercial refinery catalyst and an industrial by-product containing iron. The fuel characteristics and chemical compositions of pyrolysis products were characterized by means of chromatographic, spectroscopic and standard ASTM methods. Although, the oily wastes did not affect the product yields from the pyrolysis of scrap tire, they improved the fuel characteristics of scrap tire derived oils. The fuel characteristics of co-pyrolysis oils (except flash point and sulfur content) had similar fuel characteristic with the commercial diesel. It was also found that the amounts of metal impurities in all pyrolytic oils were smaller than 0.3 ppm, which was a significantly low amount compared with those in the original oily wastes. Gross calorific values of pyrolysis gases were found to be in the range of 20.4–26.4 MJ Nm−3. It was concluded that co-pyrolysis of scrap tire with oily wastes could be an environmentally friendly way for the conversion of disposable and hazardous wastes such as scrap tires, bilge water oil and oily sludge into fuels

  4. Physiological response of the Caribbean Coral O. annularis to Pollution Gradients

    Orbicella annularis is an abundant ecological cornerstone framework-building Scleractinian coral throughout the Caribbean Sea. The O. annularis holobiont (biotic and abiotic components of the coral) is negatively impacted by increased exposure to anthropogenic pollution. This is consistently evidenced by altered tissue cellular composition, and skeletal structure. The O. annularis' holobiont is weakened by increased exposure to sewage and ship bilge pollution. Pollution exposure is characterized by decreased skeletal growth, as well as decreased zooxanthellae and chromatophore tissue cell densities. Healthy colonies studied at five sites on the leeward coast of Curacao, along a systematically decreasing pollution concentration, were sampled from the back-reef depositional facies of a protected fringing reef tract. A unidirectional oceanographic current flows to the NW past the city of Willemstad, a large point source of human sewage and ship bilge. This setting creates an ideal natural laboratory for in situ experimentation that quantitatively tracks the impact to coral physiology along a gradient from unimpacted to polluted seawater. Our lab has established laser scanning microscopy for three-dimensional (3D) quantification of zooxanthellae, and chromatophore cellular tissue density. X-ray computed tomography (BioCT) was used for analysis of skeletal density. Zooxanthellae density decreased as pollution concentration increased. Chromatophore density showed no significant relationship with pollution concentration but varied dramatically within each site. This suggests zooxanthellae density is highly impacted by environmental stress while variation in chromatophore density is driven by genetic variation. These results will be used to create a new model for environmental impacts on coral physiology and skeletal growth.

  5. Evaluation of environmental impacts of outer continental shelf petroleum development in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Mellinger, P. J.; Anderson, J. W.; Vanderhorst, J. R.

    1979-06-01

    The scope of this report is to: describe the development of petroleum reserves on the Oregon, Washington, and Alaskan outer continental shelves (OCS); characterize the technology applicable to OCS development; identify the routine discharges to the marine and estuarine environment resulting from the petroleum resource development of the OCS; and discuss any possible ecological impact from these routine discharges. Components of the routine discharges to the marine environment from OCS development include metals in produced water, drilling muds, and borehole cuttings and chemicals in drilling mud. Hydrocarbons and oils are discharged to the oceans from ships' bilges and produced water and to the atmosphere as combustion products from ships and platform power generation sources and as evaporation products from offshore and land-based storage tanks. The number of discharged species is large and they occur as dissolved species, or suspended or settleable solids. Offshore technologies do exist to assure that the concentrations of discharged pollutants to the oceans and atmosphere are kept to a level that complies to regulatory limits. Where sufficient effluent data exist, it is concluded that long-term ecological effects from routine discharges have not been detected and appear not to occur. However, no environmental data gathered to date are sensitive enough to test a scientific hypothesis of the nature or magnitude of impact that would occur to a site-specific population or ecosystem from this type of release. Short-term effects are localized and short-lived and are therefore ecologically insignificant.

  6. On-line measurement of oil contaminants in water by filter-based infrared analyzers

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The properties of a dedicated infrared analyzer for on-line measurement of the oil content of water, the Oili analyzer, are evaluated theoretically and with laboratory measurements. The analyzer was originally developed for controlling the discharge of ballast and bilge water from oil tankers and more than 200 such instruments have now been supplied for that purpose, representing about 10 % of the total market. Some technical improvements are suggested, and the improved instrument is shown to be capable of measuring oil in water to an accuracy of +- 20 % down to a detection limit of +5-10 ppm in the presence of high concentrations of interfering components and under varying environmental conditions. This opens up new potential applications for the instrument, e.g. the monitoring of water discharges from oil and gas production platforms. The infrared analyzer responds only to the dispersed oil fraction, and if the dissolved fraction is of interest as well, the instrument must be equipped with a UV option, as suggested here

    The present study is focused on assessing the growth and hydrocarbon-degrading capability of the psychrophilic strain Oleispira antarctica RB-8(T). This study considered six hydrocarbon mixtures that were tested for 22days at two different cultivation temperatures (4 and 15°C). During the incubation period, six sub-aliquots of each culture at different times were processed for total bacterial abundance and GC-FID (gas chromatography-flame ionization detection) hydrocarbon analysis. Results from DNA extraction and DAPI (4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole) staining showed a linear increase during the first 18days of the experiment in almost all the substrates used; both techniques showed a good match, but the difference in values obtained was approximately one order of magnitude. GC-FID results revealed a substantial hydrocarbon degradation rate in almost all hydrocarbon sources and in particular at 15°C rather than 4°C (for commercial oil engine, oily waste, fuel jet, and crude oil). A more efficient degradation was observed in cultures grown with diesel and bilge water at 4°C. PMID:26912198

    To establish the quantity and structure of waste generated during inland vessel exploitation, it is necessary to determine the amount of traffic on the waterways, the number of vessel dockings that generate and deliver waste materials to ports, and the types of inland navigation vessels. Criteria must also be established for the calculation of estimated average waste quantities. This paper presents a methodology for the assessment of waste material quantities that was developed as part of the Technological Development Project TR 21037 of the Republic of Serbia. Required information on the amount of traffic, vessel types and numbers as well as the number of dockings was extracted from questionnaires and interviews with watermen and researchers. A set of criteria was defined in order to determine the number of passengers and crewmembers and to establish and classify quantities of vessel-generated waste (sanitary and fecal wastewater, bilge wastewater, waste oils, and solid waste). These data allowed for the Preliminary analysis of the national waterway traffic and transport infrastructure to be carried out. Results presented in this paper have triggered a number of recommendations for the construction of terminals and other facilities for the reception and management of waste streams, from the vessel where the waste is generated to the final destinations for waste processing and deposition. This is particularly applicable to countries who have not yet tackled the problem of vessel-generated waste. PMID:22325587

The grounding caused fractures in the hull, through which bilge oil, diesel fuel, and lubricating oils leaked out. The spilled oil, and the fuel remaining in the vessel, threatened environmentally sensitive reefs and bird nesting sites on nearby islands. Coast Guard Marine Safety Office Guam and the Coast Guard Pacific Strike Team sent personnel to Palau to mitigate the effects of this spill. The response team, after six weeks of effort under less than ideal conditions, removed the fuel remaining on the vessel and prevented any further pollution. The remote location of Palau, about 7,000 miles from the west coast of the United States, and the undeveloped character of this region of Palau made this response a complex, costly, and time-consuming endeavor. These factors contributed to the problem that hindered this response - for example, long distances between the spill site and support areas, lack of infrastructure at the spill site, unreliable communications system, and misunderstandings over the role of the Coast Guard

  13. Kinetic modeling and half life study on bioremediation of crude oil dispersed by Corexit 9500

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hydrocarbon pollution in marine ecosystems occurs mainly by accidental oil spills, deliberate discharge of ballast waters from oil tankers and bilge waste discharges; causing site pollution and serious adverse effects on aquatic environments as well as human health. A large number of petroleum hydrocarbons are biodegradable, thus bioremediation has become an important method for the restoration of oil polluted areas. In this research, a series of natural attenuation, crude oil (CO) and dispersed crude oil (DCO) bioremediation experiments of artificially crude oil contaminated seawater was carried out. Bacterial consortiums were identified as Acinetobacter, Alcaligenes, Bacillus, Pseudomonas and Vibrio. First order kinetics described the biodegradation of crude oil. Under abiotic conditions, oil removal was 19.9% while a maximum of 31.8% total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) removal was obtained in natural attenuation experiment. All DCO bioreactors demonstrated higher and faster removal than CO bioreactors. Half life times were 28, 32, 38 and 58 days for DCO and 31, 40, 50 and 75 days for CO with oil concentrations of 100, 500, 1000 and 2000 mg/L, respectively. The effectiveness of Corexit 9500 dispersant was monitored in the 45 day study; the results indicated that it improved the crude oil biodegradation rate.

    Some of the emulsified oily wastewater generated by the Washington Marine Group fleet and the Vancouver shipyards are from sources such as bilge water, tank wash water from gas freeing operations, ballast water, and wastewater from pressure washing equipment. The Washington Marine Group is the largest shipbuilding, ship maintenance and repair, and marine transportation company in Canada, a group to which McKay Creek Technologies belongs. A investigation was performed in an attempt to find commercially viable means of treating this wastewater. McKay Creek Technologies developed its own cleaning process. Electrocoagulation is a process based on the use of an electrical current in an electrochemical cell to coagulate contaminants in wastewater. With three years of experience gained by treating the wastewater of the Washington Marine Group operations at Vancouver shipyards using this technology, McKay Creek Technologies has found ways to treat emulsified oily wastewater simply and effectively. It has been determined that electrocoagulation is an effective treatment method for emulsified oils, poly-nuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), poorly settling solids, poorly soluble organics, contaminants which add turbidity to water, and negatively charged metal species like arsenic, molybdenum, and phosphate. A brief history of electrocoagulation was provided, and the authors explained the process and how it was applied to the situation at Vancouver shipyards. 2 refs., 5 tabs., 1 fig.

    The unstable rolling region and angle in the regular waves were studied by both tank test modeling a large container ship and theoretical calculation based on Mathieu{prime}s equation. Further research was made on the influence of metacentric height (GM) under the calm sea condition, ship speed and bilge keel dimension on the unstable rolling region. To avoid the unstable roll motion in the waves caused by the parametric resonance, the fluctuation in GM is designed to be diminished on the waves by U-shaping the hull fore and aft like a fat large ship hull, or the fluctuation in dynamic stability is done to be diminished by increasing the GM on the calm sea. However, the ship with a U-shaped hull fore and aft is large in rolling angle due to the smallness in righting arm at the large heeling angle. Generally regardless of oceanic condition and ship speed, it is impossible to establish the GM absolutely without the primary and secondary synchronizing points. To avoid the unstable roll motion with a low ship speed, it is desirable to do it by the ship speed to be as high as possible. 11 refs., 13 figs., 1 tab.

    The flow characteristics of the propeller wake behind a container ship model with a rotating propeller were investigated using a two-frame PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) technique. Ensemble-averaged mean velocity fields were measured at four different blade phases and ensemble-averaged to investigate the flow structure in the near-wake region. The mean velocity fields in longitudinal planes show that a velocity deficit is formed in the regions near the blade tips and hub. As the flow develops in the downstream direction, the trailing vortices formed behind the propeller hub move upward slightly due to the presence of the hull wake and free surface. Interaction between the bilge vortices and the incoming flow around the hull causes the flow structure to be asymmetric. Contour plots of the vorticity give information on the radial distribution of the loading on the blades. The radial velocity profiles fluctuate to a greater extent under the heavy (J=0.59) and light loading (J=0.88) conditions than under the design loading condition (J=0.72). The turbulence intensity has large values around the tip and trailing vortices. As the wake develops in the downstream direction, the strength of the vorticity diminishes and the turbulence intensity increases due to turbulent diffusion and active mixing between the tip vortices and the adjacent wake flow.

  18. Bioremediation of marine oil pollution

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An assessment is presented of the scientific and technological developments in the area of bioremediation and biodegradation of marine oil pollution. A number of allied technologies are also considered. The basic technology in bioremediation involves adding fertilizers to an oil spill to enhance the natural process of oil biodegradation. Bioremediation can be applied to open systems such as beach or land spills, or in closed and controlled environments such as storage containers, specially constructed or modified bioreactors, and cargo tanks. The major advantage of using closed environments is the opportunity to control the physical and nutritional parameters to optimize the rate of biodegradation. An evaluation of the state of the art of bioremediation in Canada is also included. Recommendations are made to involve the Canadian Transportation Development Centre in short-term research projects on bioremediation. These projects would include the use of a barge as a mobile bioreactor for the treatment of off-loaded oily waste products, the use of in-situ bioremediation to carry out extensive cleaning, degassing, and sludge remediation on board an oil tanker, and the use of a barge as a mobile bioreactor and facility for the bioremediation of bilges. 51 refs., 4 figs., 14 tabs

    'Accelerating Science', CERN’s travelling science outreach exhibition, has just arrived at the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey for a four-month stay there. This is the first time it has moved outside the circle of the Member States. The Turkish venue will inaugurate some new exhibits that have recently been developed by CERN’s software developers.   “It’s been a very busy day,” says Bilge Demirkoz, an associate professor of physics at METU and a member of AMS-02, who had been overseeing the unloading of the lorries when we spoke to her. “As the University doesn’t have a specific exhibition space, the CERN exhibits are going to be housed in the covered tennis courts just behind the cultural and congress centre. It’s a beautiful venue, and there are plenty of parking spaces.” The University has sent invitations to the exhibition to high schools and to about 100 ...

    Full Text Available The application of decomposed substrate after continual biogas production is one of the possible ways how to use alternative energy sources with following monitoring of its complex influence on the hygienic state of soil with the emphasis on heavy metal input. The substances from bilge and drain sediments from water panels, also biosludge gained by continual co-fermentation of animal excrements belong to these compounds. The biosludge application is connected with possible risk of cadmium and lead, also other risky elements input into the soil. The analyses of applicated sludge prove that the determined heavy metals contents are compared with limitary value. These facts - hygienic state of soil, pH influence this limitary value and biosludge is suitable for soil application. The total heavy metals content in soil is related to the increased cadmium, nickel, chromium and cobalt contents. The analyses of heavy metals contents in sunflower seeds show that the grown yield does not comply with the legislative norms from the stand point of heavy metals content due to high zinc and nickel contents. Copper, cadmium, lead, chromium contents fulfil limitary values, for cobalt content the value is not mentioned in Codex Alimentarius. The nickel value in the control variant seeds is 2.2 times higher than the highest acceptable amount, then in variant where the sludge was applicated the nickel content was increased by 1.6 times. In the case of zinc there was increasing content in individual variants 4.7, or 4.8 times. The direct connection with the higher accumulation of zinc and nickel in soil by the influence of biosludge application is not definitely surveyed, the increased heavy metals contents in sunflower were primarily caused by their increased contents in soils.

    The methodology to obtain the non-linear roll damping from decay tests is very old. It has been proposed by Froude in the 19th century and used from then on. Behind it there is a quadratic model for the damping and a subsequent equivalent linearization. Probably all model basin in the world follows this approach to assess the damping from a decay test. This is well documented and so is the methods to get the P1-P2 coefficients. This is very general in the sense that in principle, it could be applied to any kind of hull. However, it has become clear that for hull with a flat bottom such as a very large crude carrier (VLCC), this approach may lead to confusing results such as negative p2. Faced with this, the work presents a completely new idea. Avoiding the polynomial approximation, the basic attitude is to devise two regions from the decaying test response. The first, called the large amplitude response region yields a larger damping, probably due to the large bilge keel vortices that are attracted to the hull flat bottom. The second is the small amplitude response region where the vortices are not attracted to the bottom but travels approximately 45° sidewise. These observations has led to a new approach called the bi-linear approach as discussed in the work after analyzing several (many) model test results. In fact, a new modified bi-linear approach is ultimately proposed after the understanding of a transition region instead of a transition angle.

In critical patients, under conditions that cause an increase in metabolic state and level of stress, there occurs considerable difference in glucose levels between capillary and venous measurements. This study aimed to investigate the comparability of capillary and venous glucose values, according to the perfusion index level obtained with the Masimo Radical-7® device, in critical patients aged 18 years and over.Method: We conducted this prospective and observational study in the emergency department of the Eskisehir Osmangazi University hospital between November 3, 2008 and February 2, 2009.Results: The blood glucose of 300 critical patients was checked by finger stick in the emergency unit. The participants with normal vital signs had perfusion index between 0 and 5; the results obtained by the two methods were more consistent for perfusion index values of 6 and over. The results were most consistent in aged participants with normal vital sign findings and low perfusion index and in young patients with high perfusion index. In the cases where at least one of the vital signs was abnormal, the glucose values obtained by the two methods were more consistent when the perfusion index was 6 or over. In this group, independently from the perfusion index value, the consistency was higher in younger patients compared with aged patients.Conclusion: In the emergency department, perfusion index value measured by Masimo Radical-7 and capillary blood glucose levels can serve in blood sugar management in

    This work presents the results regarding CGG's Waste and Effluents Management Program between February 2003 and April 2004 on M/V CGG HARMATTAN. It main objective is to trace all waste and effluents since its generation until its final disposal. To implement this program CGG has two environmental technicians on board, whose are responsible for supervising the program, as well as educating, training, and optimizing waste and effluents segregation. Furthermore, the company also employs a consultant team to logistic management on shore; whose are responsible for executing, transferring, transporting and yours final disposing. Results show a monthly generation of 7.428 Kg and 97.3 m3 in average for waste and effluents respectively. Data indicates waste generation peaks during port calls. Waste tracing has improved along the year, allowing better control and resulting in value decreasing for port calls. Effluents are constantly generated in the same amount with monthly average of 50.2 m3 for bilge water, 41 m3 for sewage and 6.1 m3 for sludge. The percentage of non-recyclable waste sent to cleaner technology (co-processing and re-use) has been increasing along the year, replacing industrial landfill and incinerator use. Latest numbers already show the first results concerning it (2.2% re-used and 24,5% co-processed of total produced solid garbage). Re -used numbers are resulted from pioneer partnership between CGG and fishermen communities, for their original activity. The reached results and environmental indicators show that program efficiency has been evolving, considering logistic, economic, social and environmental aspects, constantly optimized with measures to increase control.

    UV irradiation and advanced oxidation processes have been recently regarded as promising solutions in removing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from marine oily wastewater. However, such treatment methods are generally not sufficiently understood in terms of reaction mechanisms, process simulation and process control. These deficiencies can drastically hinder their application in shipping and offshore petroleum industries which produce bilge/ballast water and produced water as the main streams of marine oily wastewater. In this study, the factorial design of experiment was carried out to investigate the degradation mechanism of a typical PAH, namely naphthalene, under UV irradiation in seawater. Based on the experimental results, a three-layer feed-forward artificial neural network simulation model was developed to simulate the treatment process and to forecast the removal performance. A simulation-based dynamic mixed integer nonlinear programming (SDMINP) approach was then proposed to intelligently control the treatment process by integrating the developed simulation model, genetic algorithm and multi-stage programming. The applicability and effectiveness of the developed approach were further tested though a case study. The experimental results showed that the influences of fluence rate and temperature on the removal of naphthalene were greater than those of salinity and initial concentration. The developed simulation model could well predict the UV-induced removal process under varying conditions. The case study suggested that the SDMINP approach, with the aid of the multi-stage control strategy, was able to significantly reduce treatment cost when comparing to the traditional single-stage process optimization. The developed approach and its concept/framework have high potential of applicability in other environmental fields where a treatment process is involved and experimentation and modeling are used for process simulation and control.

    Full Text Available Problem statement: Anthropogenic activities pollute the oceans with oil through land run off, vessels accidents, periodic tanker discharges and bilge discharges. Oil spills are environmental disasters that impact human, plants and wild life including birds, fish and mammals. Approach: In this study, the International Guidelines for Preventing Oils Spills and Response to Disasters were reviewed and the characteristics of oil spills were discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of various oil spill response methods were evaluated. A comparative analysis were performed on the currently available remediation technologies using 10 evaluation criteria that included cost, efficiency, time, impact on wild life, reliability, level of difficulty, oil recovery, weather, effect on physical/chemical characteristics of oil and the need for further treatment. The advantages and disadvantages of each response method were used to determine the score assigned to that method. Results: There are many government regualtions for individual countries that serve as prevention mesures for oil spills in the offshore environment. They have to do with the design of equipment and machinery used in the offshore environment and performing the necessary safety inspections. The primary objectives of response to oil spill are: to prevent the spill from moving onto shore, reduce the impact on marine life and speed the degradation of any unrecovered oil. There are several physical, chemical, thermal and biological remediation technologies for oil spills including booms, skimmers, sorbents, dispersants, in-situ burning and bioremediation. Each technique has its advantages and disadvantages and the choice of a particular technique will depend on: type of oil, physical, biological and economical characteristics of the spill, location, weather and sea conditions, amount spilled and rate of spillage, depth of water column, time of the year and effectiveness of technique.

    2004-11-01

    This paper describes a proposed joint venture between Chevron Canada Resources, ExxonMobil Canada Ltd. and Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Ltd. The offshore Orphan Basin Exploration Drilling Program will take place 300 km northeast of St. John's, Newfoundland at water depths ranging from 500 to 3,000 metres. Drilling operations are scheduled to begin in 2006 or 2007 depending on rig availability and regulatory approval. The Canada-Newfoundland Offshore Petroleum Board must conduct an environmental assessment of the project. The legislation relevant to the environmental aspects of the project was listed. There is no federal funding for the project and no long-term employment opportunities are expected from this limited duration drilling program. The operators will first drill 1 to 3 exploration wells. Additional exploration or delineation wells may be drilled depending on results from 3-D seismic data analysis. Each exploration well is expected to take from 50 to 180 days to complete. This paper explains the alternatives to the project, its phases and scheduling. Site plans were also described along with personnel management, mobile offshore drilling units, seismic survey equipment, well site surveys, marine support vessels, helicopter support and shore base facilities. Proposed drilling activities were described in terms of typical drill hole and casings, drill muds and cuttings, and well abandonment. Prior to ocean discharge, waste discharges such as drill muds and cuttings, produced water, grey and black water, ballast water, bilge water, deck drainage and air emissions will be managed in accordance with the Offshore Water Treatment Guidelines. Onboard environmental monitoring will take place to record weather, oceanographic and ice parameters. 5 refs., 1 tab., 1 fig.

  9. The Quebec connection : though based in Canada, all of ProSep's sales are foreign

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Montreal-based ProSep Inc. developed a method for stripping hydrocarbons from water. The potential uses for the technology include oil spill cleanups and cleaning bilge water and industrial wash water. Seven years ago, ProSep targeted the Alberta oilsands and the North Sea markets with its technology because water produced with bitumen from steam assisted gravity drainage wells had to be purified before going back into the steam boilers for re-injection, and new regulations in the North Sea were requiring operators to reduce hydrocarbon discharges into the ocean. Upon selling a few units to large companies operating in the North Sea, ProSep sold several units to a large national oil company in the Middle East. As stock spiked in 2006, the company raised substantial capital and acquired Pure Group AS of Stavanger, Norway, in 2007. Pure Group's leading technology for oil, gas and water treatment is called the CTour, which mixes condensate with produced water to improve coalescence of dispersed and dissolved oil droplets. In the Middle East, Aramco has successfully tested ProSep's ProSalt system as a means of saving millions of gallons of wash water per year. Also in the Middle East, ProSep sold a TORR unit as part of a package to Al-Rashed Company, a leading contractor in Kuwait. The contract was to supply a complete crude oil processing train for separation, dehydration and desalting at Kuwait Oil Company's Ratqa and Abdali facility in northern Kuwait. The TORR is designed to remove dispersed hydrocarbons from produced water without the use of chemicals. 2 figs.

    Under great anthropogenic pressure due to the substantial freshwater input from the surrounding industrial and agricultural areas, especially central and middle-Eastern Europe, the Black Sea basin is ranked among the most ecologically threatened water bodies of the world. Oil levels are unacceptable in many coastal areas perilously close to polluted harbors and many river mouths; the places presenting the highest levels of bio-diversity and having a high socio-economic importance due to human use of coastal resources. There are about sixty sources of pollution which resulted in "hot spots" having disastrous impacts on sensitive marine and coastal areas and needing immediate priorities for action. Beyond such land-based sources, trans-boundary pollution sources from Black Sea riparian countries, heavy maritime traffic, particularly involving petroleum transports and fishing boats, and the improper disposal of ballast and bilge waters and solid waste are also important marine sources of pollution. Found in fossil fuels such as Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons are generated by incomplete combustion of organic matter. In order to estimate their distribution in sediment and their sources, they were monitored from the bottom samples offshore the Zonguldak industry region, one of the most polluted spots in the Turkish Black Sea. There the budget of pollutants via rivers is not precisely known due to an evident lack of data on chemical and granulometric composition of the river runoff and their fluxes. Therefore the marine sediments, essential components of marine ecosystems, are very important in our estimating the degree of the damage given to the ecosystem by such inputs. Realization of the sources and transport of these contaminants will be a critical tool for future management of the Zonguldak industry region and its watershed. The sea bottom in study area is composed of mainly sand and silt mixtures with small amount of clay. Geochemical analyses have shown that oil

Rheumatic mitral stenosis (RMS is the most long-term sequel in RHD. The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR is a novel marker, and a higher NLR has been associated with poor clinical outcomes in various cardiovascular disorders. We evaluated the availability of NLR to predict severity of mitral stenosis (MS in patients with RHD. Methods: We analyzed 300 consecutive patients with RMS. The patients were divided into tertiles according to NLR: 0.85< NLR ≤1.85 (n=100, tertile 1, 1.86≤ NLR ≤2.46 (n=100, tertile 2, and 2.47≤ NLR ≤7.08 (n=100, tertile 3. Patients with RMS were divided into three groups based on the degree of MS as mild, moderate, and severe MS. After the initial evaluation, 187 patients with moderate-to-severe RMS (Group 1 and 113 patients with mild RMS (Group 2 were reassessed. Results: The patients with severe RMS had significantly elevated NLR, mean platelet volume, and pulmonary artery systolic pressure values compared to patients with moderate and mild MS (P<0.001, P<0.001, P<0.001 respectively. Multivariate binary logistic regression analysis revealed that high levels of NLR was an independent predictor of severe RMS (odds ratio =0.68, P=0.008. Moderate-to-severe RMS incidence was significantly higher among patients in the tertile 3 (odds ratio =2.8, P=0.001. Conclusion: NLR is a new inflammatory marker

    Full Text Available The notes on death themselves are indicators of the richness of the literary styles in bibliographies which tell us about the people who leave indelible marks on classic literature and vefayat-nama. The authors of tezkires, vefayat-namas and other bibliographic books preferred to use an ornamented language rather than a simple one while they were expressing the death of poets, authors, musicians and velis. In this explanation, it is possible to define our people's point of view about death. The author regarded the death as a change of place, the migrate from this world to the other world and he became the sound of soul. In his explanation, the death is a migration and a journey to heaven. Therefore, these works have a significance in terms of cultural and folklore history. In this paper, the notes on death in Bursalı İsmail Beliğ's works named as Güldeste-i Riyâz-ı İrfân ve Vefeyât-ı Dânişverân-ı Nâdiredân are analysed. Klasik edebiyatta arkasından bir iz, bir eser bırakarak ebediyete göçmüş kişilerin hayatlarını anlatan biyografik eserlerde, vefeyât-nâmelerde ölüme düşülen notlar, başlı başına zengin bir üslup göstergesi durumundadır. Tezkire, vefeyat ve diğer biyografik eser yazarları, hayatlarını anlattıkları şair, yazar, bilgin, muşikişinas ve velilerin vefatlarını kısaca “öldü”, “vefat etti” gibi basit bir biçimde anlatmak yerine süslü, şiirsel, muhayyel cümle ve ibarelerle anlatmayı tercih etmişlerdir. Bu ibarelerde insanımızın ölüme bakış açılarını tesbit etmek mümkün görünmektedir. Ölümü bir mekân değiştirme; ölümlü dünyadan ebedi âleme bir göç olarak gören müellif, aslında toplumsal vicdanın sesi olmuştur. Onun ifadelerinde vefatlar birer göç, cennet bahçelerine yolculuk, sonsuzluğa kanat çırpmaktır. Ölülerinizi hayırla anınız, prensibinden şaşmayan Beliğ, her öleni hayır ve güzel sözlerle anarak bilge bir tav

    , Genghis Khan was born with a blood clot held by Genghis Khan during his birth.The Mongols took most facts on state management and organization from Turkish culture. Origin of the customs known as Genghis Khan’s laws is also Turkish origin. Also it is asserted by scientists that the concepts related to state management such as law, custom, nation, flag, etc. are transmitted from Turkish language to Mongol language. It is not a fortuity that Genghis Khan chosen Otuken, capital city of the Huns, Gokturks and Uyghurs, that is, holy land of the Turks as a state center. Genghis Khan adopted the advice “The Otuken forests is a place to be adopted as a motherland” bequeathed by Bilge Kahn to Turkish in the Orhon inscriptions. He desired to make advantage of protection and observation power of Otuken as well as political and geopolitical reasons. Dünya tarihi bakımından en dikkat çeken fetih hareketlerinden biri Moğol Hakanı Cengiz Han’ın 13. Yüzyılda gerçekleştirdikleri olmuştur. Çünkü Cengiz Han’ın kurduğu devlet çok kısa bir sürede dünyanın gördüğü en büyük kara sınırına sahip devlet haline gelmişti. Bu yönüyle Cengiz Han tarihin en çok ilgi çeken şahsiyetlerinden biri olmuştur. Cengiz Han Devleti tarihini araştıran her Türk tarihçisi orada Türk kültürüne ait unsurların varlığını kolaylıkla fark edebilir. Bizim bu çalışmayı yapma nedenimiz Moğolların Gizli Tarihi adlı eser olmuştur. Eserin Uygur alfabesiyle yazıldığı düşünülen aslı tam metin halinde bulunamamış ve Çin işaretleriyle yazıldığı anlaşılan Moğolca, “Manghol-un Niuça Tobça’an” 1946 yılında Ahmet Temir tarafından Türkçe’ye çevrilmiştir. Bu eserin yazarı bilinmemekle beraber içindeki ifadelerden 1240 yılında yazıldığı anlaşılmaktadır. “Moğolların Gizli Tarihi”, Moğollar hakkında yazılan pek çok eserin ana kaynağı hükmündedir. Bu eser Cengiz Han’ın kendi soyunu, hayat hikayesini, dini
