21st Offshore Symposium 2016: Emerging Offshore Technology and Deepwater Trends | Year: 2016

The underwater welding is the emerging technology of the present and the future. Many offshore platforms and ships need the underwater welding process during emergency. There exist many research institutes globally in developing techniques for underwater welding. A dire need for developing the underwater vehicle for welding processes in marine applications. The recent developments in the underwater vehicles have led to a revolutionary change in the design and system development for coastal surveillance, sea bed inspection and ocean bed exploration. This paper presents a review in implementation of a robot arm for an autonomous underwater welding vehicle. It deals with review of various underwater welding techniques for marine applications and structured such a manner all aspects of underwater welding process with robot manipulator as per the classification requirements. A brief review of its characteristics, applications and the risk mitigation factors of underwater welding techniques for marine applications. The end residt is a model that provides accurate predictions for the joint torques of a two-link robot arm in a simple form implemented with algorithms for precision planning and control during underwater welding application.

The service durability and safety of a vessel can be assessed to its peak only in harsh conditions. Usage of eLORAN (Enhanced LOng RAnge Navigation) as a backup and support for navigation system in place of GPS, which tends to fail in harsh conditions is suggested. The paper evaluates the navigation and safety system of wind farm support vessels with accordance to modern classification rules and projects the usage of new rules for a robust service in all sea conditions. © 2015: The Royal Institution of Naval Architects.

A detailed analysis on cargo movement and traffic analysis on the existing ports in the Indian coast has been performed with reference to the Nargol Port, off Gujarat Coast. Vessel size analysis has been performed in order to know what type of vessel, expected to come to the port, in accordance with to Indian Port Association (2013 - 2014). The scenario at west coast coal ports are reviewed to understand the size of the vessels arriving at these ports. The west coast ports handle about 58% of total liquid bulk vessels which are called at Indian Major Ports of which majority is handled by Mumbai and Kandla From the analysis of the world wide fleet and the Indian scenario, the Indian ports are mostly serving vessel size ranging between 50000 to 80000 DWT which may be due to draft restriction and limited handling facilities. But the neighboring ports Mumbai and Kandla have facilities to serve vessels of 100000 DWT and above. Cape size vessels are expected to arrive in the Indian ports in the future; so considering the future scenario, design vessels sizes are recommended accordingly. This paper features on the various aspects of analysis made with reference to Nargol Port. © IAEME Publication.

The Kattupalli port in Chennai, a greenfield port was established as a joint venture between Tamilnadu Industrial Development Corporation (TIDCO) and Larsen and &Toubro (L&T) under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model. This port was set up primarily to handle the increased volume of sea trade along the East Coast line of Tamilnadu and to be a modern gateway in the region. The two major ports, Chennai and Ennore located in the same region were choked with traffic and Kattupalli was expected to give some relief. The port was strategically designed to offer more sophisticated services in order to divert the traffic from the two adjacent ports. The port became operational in January 2013. At this juncture, this paper makes an attempt to evaluate the performance of this port since its establishment to assess if the unique features of this port have helped to attract customers and ease traffic in the region. © IAEME Publication.

Bisthiourea lead acetate Pb[SC(NH2)2] 2(CH3COO)2), a novel semi organic non linear optical crystal having dimensions 17 mm × 2 mm × 2 mm were grown using slow evaporation technique. The lattice parameters for the grown crystals were determined using single crystal XRD. The presence of functional groups for the grown crystals was confirmed using Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The optical absorption studies show that the material has wide optical transparency in the entire visible region. The dielectric constant and dielectric loss has been studied as a function of frequency for various temperatures and the results were discussed in detail. The second harmonic generation was confirmed by Kurtz powder method and it is found to be 5 times than that of potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) crystal. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

While it is said that merchant ships are now so automated and sufficiently reliable for little skill to be demanded of those who control them, on the other hand, it is also argued that today's merchant ships are so complicated that only those who fully comprehend their complexities should be entrusted with their operation. This paper attempts to obtain more insight into this paradox and systematically examines the technological imperative in shipping and its accompanying challenges particularly the skilling dilemma. It then delves into the contrasting theories of technological change implications in the work environment before arriving at the plausible correct understanding that appears to provide the viable explanations and solution. © 2013 World Maritime University.

Single crystals of glycine-phthalic acid (GPA) were grown by slow evaporation process using aqueous solution. X-ray diffraction analysis was used to examine its cell structure and it was found that the GPA crystal corresponded to the orthorhombic system. To identify absorption range and cut-off wavelength for the GPA crystal, UV-visible spectrum was recorded. UV-visible spectroscopy was used to study the optical constants such as the refractive index, the extinction coefficient, electrical susceptibility, and optical conductivity. As a function of different frequencies and temperatures, the dielectric constant and the dielectric loss were examined. The electrical properties like plasma energy, Penn gap, Fermi energy, and polarizability were determined for the analysis of the second harmonic generation (SHG). Using the Kurtz powder technique, the SHG of the GPA crystal was studied. Investigations relating to hysteresis were carried out to ascertain the ferroelectric nature of the material. © 2016 The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society
