China is an important Quayside Crane producer and exporter in the world. The Quayside Crane has been used as crucial equipment in container terminals and also in supporting towards the global trade momentum. However, it simultaneously impacts the environment negatively on air quality and in addition contributes adversely towards energy consumption. To reduce the deleterious environmental effects of the Quayside Crane so as to improve the sustainability of this industry, evaluation of its environmental impacts through life cycles is acute necessary. This research undertook a cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment for a Quayside Crane made in China. Its purpose was to identify the key processes that effected the environment, as well as, sought out opportunities for improving the environmental profiles of Quayside Cranes. The inventory data was obtained from on-site investigations of Quayside Crane producers in Shanghai, China. The environmental impacts were evaluated using the ReCiPe method at midpoint level and operating the GaBi 6.0 assessment software. The results showed that nearly all environmental impact categories and life cycle costs were relatively high in the utilization stage. Steel production stage was the most important driver to the categories that impact environmental degradation, such as freshwater ecotoxicity, metal depletion, freshwater eutrophication and ozone depletion. Accordingly recovery of materials, such as steel reuse after refurbishment in the end-of-life stage could notably diminish most of the environmental impacts. In addition, sensitivity analysis and economic analysis were employed to promote the reliability of the life cycle assessment results. Based on these findings, several improvements could be put forward, for instance, optimized design for motor efficiency of the Quayside Crane was recognized as the most effective way to reduce the environmental impacts which should be urgently amended. The life cycle assessment could help decision-makers to know the key points that should be streamlined to make the Quayside Crane more reliable, energy-efficient, technologically and environmentally sustainable. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes are an important piece of transport equipment in ship and rail container terminals. They have a diversified power demand, for example, peak powers of 292-kW driving, 178 kW regenerating, and 7-kW idle power. The high peak power demand determines the system prime mover (internal combustion engine) rating, which is highly over-rated for the crane average energy requirements. Such a variation in peak to idle power demand favors a hybrid power solution which, given appropriate design, can yield significant gains in fuel or energy usage and, importantly, reductions in local emissions, thus improving air-quality. In this study, a hybrid energy source for an RTG crane is presented. The hybrid energy source comprises of a lithium battery and a down-sized diesel-generator connected to the dc link through an active front end unit. While other systems have been previously proposed, the system presented here utilizes a smaller diesel-generator, thus reducing plant and fuel consumption. In addition, the battery connects directly to the dc link reducing system power electronics while improving battery response and efficiency. Experimental results from a full-size evaluation system are presented showing a 57% reduction of fuel consumption compared to a conventional RTG crane system. © 1986-2012 IEEE.

The vibration comfort of quayside crane cab gains great concern from both crane users and manufacturers, so an investigation of factors affecting vibration comfort of the cab is need to be conducted. This paper first proposes a framework of simulation-based vibration comfort evaluation for studying a wide range of factors, then introduces the physical experiment with 9 test cases in detail. Lastly, comfort evaluation and variable influence assessment are undertaken based on the experimental data. Results show that the trolley speed has significant effect on the vibration comfort, while the influence of lifted load is unapparent. A future research will address numerical simulations for comfort evaluation and influence assessment. © 2017 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc. All rights reserved.

The cantilever is an important part of jack-up drilling platform. It improves the efficiency and flexibility of drilling operation. The traditional cantilever's finite element model is built which is selected as the research object, and the bending performance is simulated. Besides, analytical formula is used to analyze the affection laws of the cantilever's overhung distance on the bending moment distribution; the maximum normal stress is taked as the constraint and the girder's design height along the overhung distance is derived. Based on this method, the cantilever as variable cross-section is designed. The result shows that the optimized cantilever's weight can be reduced by 22.903 t, its bending performance improves, achieving the goal of lightweight. © 2017 Journal of Mechanical Engineering.

Reliability design and reliability management have been fast developed for more than half a century. Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), advanced Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (AFMEA) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) are three popular methods, which focus attention on finding the causes of functional and physical failure, rather than statistic mathematic methods. This paper compared and discussed the features of these three methods. After the discussion we proposed a scenario to incorporate FMEA and FTA, in order to solve some problems that cannot be managed by one method alone. With the comparison, further discussion of these three methods, and tentative incorporation of FMEA and FTA, we formed some new ideas of the possible development of reliability design. © 2011 IEEE.

Bonded rubber rings are widely used in many engineering domains to buffer the impact. In general, accurate load-deformation relationships are required in these applications. However, previous researches merely discussed the cylindrical rubber pad rather than the rubber ring. Besides, few of them are based on continuum mechanics theory. In this paper, the load-compression relationships of the bonded incompressible rubber ring are derived for three boundary conditions. The Mooney-Rivlin material is considered and the derivation is based on continuum mechanics theory. The results calculated by the derived formulae are compared with the FEM solutions and proved to have adequate accuracy for various shape factors and materials, even in the finite strain. The typical load-compression curves of the rubber rings are also presented and the characteristic of the compression stiffness in different boundaries are discussed. © 2016, Editorial Board of Journal of Ship Mechanics.

As a bulk cargo handling equipment, ship unloader plays a very important role in port bulk material handling. As the international bulk cargo ship is becoming increasingly larger, the ship unloader is becoming larger as well. This paper builds the finite element model of the ship unloader, proposes a structure optimization method based on the orthogonal experimental method and a parametric modeling method, and develops software based on the two methods introduced above. The research includes the following: a new method to ship unloader’s structure optimization based on the orthogonal experimental method; the finite element model and the parametric modeling method of the ship unloader; and the parametric modeling and structure optimization software of the ship unloader. The software provides two functions: One is the parametric modeling function, and people can realize the ship unloader’s modeling by input parameters on the interface. The other is the structure optimization function, which can realize the weight reduction target of ship unloader by the structure optimization method based on the orthogonal experimental method. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015.

Since a self-elevating platform often works in water for a long time, the lattice leg is largely influenced by wave and current. The amplitude of leg joint stresses is a very important factor for the fatigue life of the platform. However, there are not many researches having been done on the mechanism and dynamic stress analysis of these leg joints. This paper focuses on the dynamic stress analysis and suppression methods of the leg joints of self-elevating platforms. Firstly, the dynamic stresses of the lattice leg joints are analyzed for a self-elevating platform by use of the 5th-order Stokes wave theory. Secondly, the axial and bending stresses are studied due to their large contributions to total stresses. And then, different joint types are considered and the leg-hull interface stiffness is analyzed for the improvement of the joint dynamic stress amplitude. Finally, some useful conclusions are drawn for the optimization design of the self-elevating platform. © 2011 Chinese Ocean Engineering Society and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Double-sided double arc welding (DSAW), a high efficiency method requiring no back chipping for welding thick plate of high-strength low-alloy steel was used in this study. Gas metal arc welding is employed for backing run and filler passes. The effect of DSAW on preheating temperature is investigated. Meanwhile, numerical simulation has been performed to predict transient temperatures, which are in good agreement with the experimental results. The critical stress in DSAW without preheating is 528.31 MPa, while in conventional welding with 100 C preheating temperature, it is 393.44 MPa. The higher critical stress implies that the samples in DSAW without preheating have better cold crack resistance than those in conventional welding with 100 C preheating temperature. Y-slit type cracking test indicates that the samples welded by double-sided double arc demonstrate better cold crack resistance than conventional welding at the same preheating temperature. Therefore, DSAW can realize welding thick plate of high-strength low-alloy steel with lower preheating temperature or even without preheating. © 2013 Springer-Verlag London.
