New Courses Examine Ship Structure Fatigue

Monday, May 10, 2004
BMT Fleet Technology Ltd, a subsidiary of British Maritime Technology Ltd (BMT), is planning a new series of ship structure fatigue and fracture courses for naval architects, engineers and ship superintendents responsible for vessel design, maintenance and operation.

In recent years significant advances have been made in the application of quantitative fatigue and fracture assessment procedures to a wide range of structures including ships, aircraft, offshore platforms and pipelines. Application of this technology is improving the ability to make safe and cost-effective material specification, design and maintenance decisions. Several projects sponsored by the US Ship Structure Committee and completed by BMT have demonstrated the applicability of these principles to ship structures. However, their practical implementation has been limited by a lack of dissemination to industry. BMT's courses are specifically designed to provide the required training or technology transfer.

BMT Fleet Technology's President Ian Glen said: 'The objective of these courses is for attendees to obtain an understanding of how to assess in-service damage accumulation and the final failure of a ship structure with due consideration for environmental effects. Throughout the course, the assessment methodologies are illustrated through the use of practical quantitative examples and design tools.' Future ship structure fatigue and fracture courses are being planned for the UK and USA in the autumn of 2004. For more information contact Aaron Dinovitzer at BMT Fleet Technology Ltd,
