Case Study -1

BOW MODIFICATION ANALYSIS

• Vessels : 6750 TEU & 13119 TEU containers

• Scope of assessment : Container vessels underwent bow modification for fuel savings and economic sailing where the actual operational fuel savings was checked.

• Conclusion : The savings in the fuel was not found justifying the investment on the modification and the owners dropped the plan to extend bow modification to further vessels. This was a major decision for the owners before a huge investment.

PAINT STUDY *

• Vessels : Containers & Bulkers

• Scope of assessment : A special paint was applied for one of the sister vessel after DD on the claim for a lesser hull fouling

• Conclusion : The specially painted vessel performance was compared with her sister vessels performance and found the claim to be valid and ROI was good

* Paint study is typical example. Similar studies were carried out for PBCF installation, silicon coating on propeller etc.

REPORTING ISSUES

• Vessels : Containers

• Scope of assessment : To access the common reporting errors and rectify

• Conclusion : A major reporting error was found in reporting the fuel* Helped the owners to identify an issue in calibration of flow meters

* The reported data was analysed using the data monitoring tool and found a mismatch between the reported FO and ROB against the bunker data.

UNDER PERFORMANCE CLAIM VERIFICATION

• Vessels : Bulk Carrier

• Scope of assessment : Evaluate the vessel performance in view of the underperformance claim for the vessel. The vessel underwent a propeller modification to increase the light running margin.

• Conclusion : On evaluating the reported data after the propeller modification, It was evident that the light running margin has increased and the underperformance claim was true. The analysis showed that there was a reporting error in the   Power, which was later confirmed by the vessel.

RESISTANCE CALCULATIONS FOR RO RO BARGE USING CFD

• Vessels – Ro-Ro Barge

• Scope of assessment – Resistance & Powering of Barge using CFD Analysis

• Conclusion : The results of CFD analysis was a good match with the experimental study conducted later. The CFD method, in comparison with the model test, has great advantages, such as lower costs, reduced time, accessibility and more visible details in results. It also allows designers to calculate the hull resistance and investigate the flow around the hull without having to do a towing tank test.
