  • Visualization of a lifeboat motion during lowering along ship’s side

    This paper presents description of a computer program for motion visualization of a lifeboat lowered along ship’s side. The program is a post-processor which reads results of numerical calculations of simulated objects’ motions. The data is used to create scene composed of 3D surfaces to visualize mutual spatial positions of a lifeboat, ship’s side and water waving surface. Since the numerical data contain description of a simulation...

  • Searching for Critical Conditions During Lifeboat Launching – Simulations

    The article describes numerical simulations of the process of lifeboat launching at the ship’s side. The research is aimed at finding the values of ship motion parameters which appear to be most dangerous for people in the lowered lifeboat due to the generated accelerations. The simplified model of ship hull motion adopted at this research stage bases on a superposition of harmonic motions with given amplitudes and periods in six...

    Docking operations of ships require a response assessment to ensure structural and personnel safety. Environmental loads and improper ballast adjustments are the main threats to the docking operations. They can cause severe structural damages and stability loss to a floating dock system which includes a floating dock and a docked vessel, even if the velocities of the dock and the vessel are very low during the docking process....
