Aims

To undertake four practical engineering exercises in the following topics:

A1 – Marine Engineering
A2 – Naval Architecture (Ship Stability)
A3 – Marine Structures
A4 – Hydrodynamics

Outline Of Syllabus

A1 – Marine Engineering Pump Laboratory - The laboratory based practical provides an opportunity for practical application of marine engineering principles. It develops practical skills and demonstrates the relevance of taught material in MAR2002. In addition it highlights the differences between pure theory and practical application and provides the students with the opportunity to develop systematic scientific methods, including data collection, recording and data analysis under time-limited conditions.

A2 - Marine vehicle flooding test – The practical is based in the hydrodynamic laboratories and provides an opportunity for practical application of principles taught in MAR2008. The practical examines and test asymmetrical flooding of a ship model. Students are required to calculate heel and trim and other related flooding issues and compare with experimental results.

A3 - Structural design, make, test – The practical utilises fundamental structural data to design a truss structure of minimum weight to support a specified load. This develops and demonstrates the practical application of material taught in MAR2006/7. The designed structure is fabricated and then tested to destruction. Students present their structural design and develop a structural indicator to assess the truss performance.

A4 – Marine vehicle resistance test – The practical takes place in the towing tank to introduce students to measurement, data collection and data analysis techniques for a ship resistance test. This develops and demonstrates the practical application of material taught in MAR2001/10.
