A major pollution in the Black Sea basin is always possible. Potential causes could be multiple: The constantly increasing traffic of oil and chemical tankers; subsea pipelines, which conduct different products with a high pollutant potential are extending; offshore platforms which extract petroleum resources on the continental shelf. The research presented in this paper, conducted by using PISCES II (Potential Incident Simulation Control paper proposes and Evaluation System) software highlights the space-Time evolution of the oil spilled in Black Sea. Future research may extend on constructed scenarios which can anticipate different situations of extreme pollution in the Black Sea and at any other point on the globe. Each time the results can be used for development of intervention strategies and to assess the impact.

Forecasting applications on the stock market attract much interest from researchers in the artificial intelligence field. The problem tackled in this study concerns predicting the direction of change of stock price indices, formulated in terms of binary classification. We use gene expression programming to evolve pools of binary classifiers and investigate several approaches to construct ensembles based on them. We compare the performance of the obtained classifiers with those of Naive Bayes, Support Vector Machines, Multilayer Perceptron, Decision Table and Random Forrest. The experiments performed on real-world stock market data show that the ensembles of GEP-evolved classifier models are competitive to classifiers trained by state-of-the-art machine learning methods. © 2010 IEEE.

The issue of electromagnetic compatibility and bioelectromagnetic compatibility is critical onboard ships, especially on naval ships, characterized by a large number of antennas transmitting in various frequency range, and placed in a small area. The paper presents some measurements performed on a Romania naval ship, in order to determine whether the personnel onboard is exposed to dangerous electromagnetic radiations. There were considered several high traffic areas on the ship, and measurements were performed in two frequency ranges: 80-200 MHz and 200-2500 MHz, respectively. The results represent measurements of the far-field of antennas. Compared to the electric field strength limits for controlled environments imposed by European regulations, the measured values were definitely lower. © 2014 IEEE.

In the framework of a sustainable development through promoting a health and friendly marine environment in order to get reasonable overall earnings from oceans potential, it becomes more necessary, as compulsory condition of that, to preserve the natural reserves as a major key for improving competitiveness together with the increasing the employment rate on a long term. Taking under consideration this point of view, this paperwork objective is associated to the innovative knowledge, operating technologies and optimum techniques recommended for naval industry, in order to balance economic and social outcomes, viable from ecological point of view. The authors are underlying the necessity of naval sector adapting attitude connected to the sustainable development, based on knowledge transfer within convergence aria, in both directions, namely between natural and ecological system and technological system. In this respect, the proposed solutions contribute to the optimization desiderata in monitoring and control politics from naval industry, in dealing with the specific consumptions of natural capital, into efficient manner from economic perspective and watching to minimize the energy waste as well. The conclusions of the paperwork underpin that the decision-making chain in naval industry should contain a dimension of environment policy as guaranty for sustainable overall progress. © SGEM2013 All Rights Reserved by the International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConference SGEM.

The naval industry is oriented towards a greener operation for the ships; this goal can be achieved by implementing green technology onboard vessels, even if we are not dealing with new constructions, but rather with ships that are the subject of retrofitting. By implementing during the retrofitting period technologies that aims Renewable Energy Sources, the overall efficiency of the propulsion system will be surely increased. In this paper there are carried out transient RANS – VOF simulations for the flow around a KVLCC2 tanker model which has attached a towing kite to its bow, in order to determine the additional power that becomes available when using the high altitude towing kite which is designed to decrease considerably to operating costs of a ship, by lowering the consumption rates by 10% to 35% average winds. This concept was developed to act as a supplementary power source in addition to ship’s main engine. The simulation is carried by using Ansys CFX simulation package. Attention will be given to the discretization of the convective term and the modelling of turbulence. © 2014, SGEM. All Rights Reserved.

The naval structures are permanently the subject of the environment induced loads, such as currents, waves and wind. This is the reason for, in the design stage, the assessment of these loads proves to be crucial. The numerical simulations can represent a useful instrument in order to provide the necessary data for a correct assessment and further on, for an appropriate design of the naval structures, such as ships or offshore structures. For a proper development of a numerical simulation that aims the structure behavior in waves it is very important to have a correct numerical model for wave generators and fluid domain. This work provides a comparative analysis of the results of a numerical wave tank simulation, carried with two different commercial CFD codes. The numerical model was developed by considering the Reynolds Averaged Navier – Stokes equations, solved through the Finite Volumes Method (FVM) and Volume of Fluid method (VOF). The flow domain was discretized by using a structured mesh. There were carried studies on the numerical parameters influence (such as: time and space discretization scheme, the timestep and mesh refinement) in order to identify the optimal solution for solving the wave generation and propagation problem. © 2014, SGEM.

The paper presents the study of the magnetic signature for a component equipment of the engine sincron generator located on board a ship built from non-magnetic materials. The equipment is analysed in terms of physical and geometrical similarity criteria. The algorithm for computing the electrical circuits from the global compensation windings was correlated with the ship's geometrical shape. In was taken into consideration the fact that the winding arrangement is symmetrical to the ship diametrical plan, as well as the ship magnetic field. The paper purpose is to realise the equipment permanent and inductive magnetization compensation. © 2015 IEEE.

Dynamic performances of a wind power system are analyzed regarding the variation of the speed wind. Synchronous generator must be driven for obtaining the functioning according with the maximum power points. Wind power system should be managed so as to operate at optimal parameters, requiring the capture of wind energy with maximum efficiency. © 2014 IEEE.

In the middle of a continuous and exponential development of renewable energies trend, generated by the increasing price of the conventional fuels which are quickly draining, and facing the fact that we have tremendous messages sent by our polluted Planet, the IMO (International Maritime Organization) returned its face to environment concerns in 2008. During time IMO has realized a series of environment impact studies of maritime domain and, in concordance with this idea, developed IMO's Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC). MEPC has given extensive consideration to control of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships which are implemented in MARPOL Annex VI as a new Chapter 4, entitled 'Regulations on energy efficiency for ships'. We strongly believe that there will be a rapid grow in the number of ships which will have renewable energies systems onboard in the near future. One kind of energy that can be very well applied to the naval domain is the solar energy. As the technologies are developing very fast in the domain of photovoltaics, there is a continuous need of research in order to implement the best technical solutions in naval domain, which, as we know, presents different characteristics from classic terrain applications. Thus, there are some questions that we tried to respond on this article, as: 'what is the difference between efficiency of an onboard installed PV panel and a classic terrain installed PV panel?; how much will affect the albedo of the water?; how much will affect the ships' oscillation moves?; how is comporting a vertical Sun facing PV panel and a non-facing one? To respond at these questions we realized a comparative study between a simulated PV system and its similar real system installed onboard, in order to determine the differences between results and estimate how much we can take in consideration from a simulated PV classic system when we design a real onboard PV system. © 2014 IEEE.
