Technical Matters Issue 5 -Problem-solving on vessels
What causes technical problems on vessels and what should owners, designers and shipbuilders do to prevent them is the theme of the latest issue of Technical Matters produced by Lloyd’s Register Technical Investigation Department (TID).
You can read about TID investigations into such issues as propeller corrosion on cruise ships, how an owner or shipyard should handle structural cracking on a product tanker, what “sloshing” does to the cargoes of LNG tankers, and how to cope with a faulty steam boiler on an FPSO (floating production storage and offloading) vessel.
You can order copies of the latest issue of Technical Matters from the webstore www.webstore.lr.org or download pdfs of current and previous case studies from www.lr.org/technicalmatters.
