Outline Of Syllabus

This module provides students with a deep and detailed understanding of engineering design rationale, procedures and multiple criteria design. Students will learn how to arrange and implement machinery space, main/auxiliary power systems and axuiliary machinery facilities onboard ships. Specific attention will be given to standard and non-standard propulsion units. Teamwork and leadership qualities are introduced, exercised and assessed.

Topics include:

Engineering Design, Logical design method, Pareto distribution, marine vehicle applications, ship design; Marine Engineering Design, Machinery requirements, Machinery constraints, Marine environment; Machinery selection, Interaction with ship design, General requirements and considerations; Marine propulsion systems, Overall considerations, Selection and configuration, Combined systems, power transmission and matching; Gearing, Basic Gear Design, Gear types and applications; shafting, design sequence, vibration, arrangement consideration, shaft withdrawal; Propellers, propeller types and applications; space arrangement, main machinery, design and requirements, classification societies recommendations; piping design phases, general guidelines and detailed design, materials, insulations; automation, UMS concept, intelligent engine; design for production, general design techniques, modular construction, standardisation, scheduling. Team work: principles, responsibilities and team management. Engineering economic principles and economic criteria, the role of classification societies and regulatory influences, design for production and project management, principles of cost estimating.
