Ships and Ship Systems for Arctic Conditions

Sign up for this year first technical seminar. NCE TECH FOCUS: Compliance of Ships and Ship Systems to Arctic Conditions
Seminar and workshop: Compliance of Ships and Ship Systems to Arctic Conditions
 
Date:        Seminar 12. feb + Workshop 13. feb
Location: Høgskolen i Ålesund/Aalesund University College
Sign up:  Day 1 Seminar
                 Day 1 and Day 2  Workshop
 
For day 2 there will be limited number of seats, so sign up early !
 
Background
The melting ice cap at the polar region makes way for new shipping routes and the exploration of the undiscovered oil and gas resources in arctic areas inaccessible in the past due ice coverage. Therefore, it is of vital importance to ensure that these operations in the high north are in compliance with safety and environmental requirements. This requires sound design concepts and regulations and clear regulatory decisions on how to determine the required safety level. Hence, as a first attempt to contribute to these requirements this course will introduce the current an arctic ice condition database being developed for mission based design. Moreover, important elements of a mission based design procedure such as performance; propulsion, emission and structural compliance assessment will be presented including simulation approaches. Furthermore, the compliance of life saving equipment for arctic conditions will be presented.
                This short course will be divided into two days, with day one as a seminar to introduce theories and methodologies and day two as a workshop with hands on exercises and calculations to apply some of the contents of day one in the form of hand-based calculations. The first seminar will be open, while the second day workshop will have a limited number of chairs due to practical arrangements.

General Objective
This course will provide an introduction to requirements and technology needed to design ship and ship systems for arctic compliance.
Specific Objectives
a)    Understand the complains challenges for ship systems in arctic conditions related to safety and environment
b)    Understand the background of rule-based design of systems
c)    Can carry out simple design calculations comparing different design options
Learning outcomes
Knowledge on systems design criteria and ability carry out simple design calculations and evaluation of ships and ship systems for arctic operations.
Teaching methods
The topics are taught based on course presentation material with supporting own studying material (selected book chapter, journal and conference papers).
