Oceanography and Marine Biology, An Annual Review, Volume 37

Oceanography and Marine Biology: an Annual Review considers basic areas of marine research, returning to them when appropriate in future volumes, and deals with subjects of special and topical importance in the field of marine biology. The thirty-seventh volume follows closely the objectives and style of the earlier well received volumes, continuing to regard marine sciences - with all their various aspects - as a unit. Physical, chemical and biological aspects of marine science are dealt with by experts actively engaged in their own field. The series is an essential reference text for research workers and students in all fields of marine science and related subjects, and is consistently among the highest ranking impact factors for the marine biology category of the citation indices compiled by the Institute for Scientific Education.

Marine Bioprocess Engineering

This book contains full papers of both oral and poster presentations of the international symposium 'Marine Bioprocess Engineering' which was held in Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands, 1998. The symposium focused on the bioprocessing of marine natural products.Bioprocess engineering has been the key to success in the commercialization of biotechnology, especially with respect to biopharmaceuticals. In marine biotechnology, both new and existing biotechnological techniques are developed an applied to organisms from marine sources. For marine biotechnology, bioprocess engineering represents the link between discovery and commercialization.The diversity of marine life points to a myriad of new bioproducts waiting to be discovered and developed commercially.The volume begins to bridge the gap between the isolation of products from marine organisms in the laboratory and industrial applications by focusing on the bioprocess-engineering aspects. Reviews and recent developments in product discovery, bio-energy production, cultivation of marine organisms, scale up and product recovery are presented.This publication should ensure that the engineering aspects of marine biotechnology will receive further attention in the future. Exploration of new bioproducts from the ocean should be followed up by a sustainable exploitation of these valuable resources.

Hydrodynamics of High Speed Marine Vehicles

This volume considers hydrodynamic aspects of the three main categories of high-speed marine vehicles, i.e. vessels supported by either the submerged hull, an air cushion, or foils. (Submerged-hull-supported vessels include planing and semi-displacement vessels.) The wave environment, resistance, propulsion, seakeeping, sea loads, and maneuvering are extensively covered based on rational and simplified methods. Links to automatic control and structural mechanics are emphasized. A detailed description of waterjet propulsion is given, and the effect of water depth on wash, resistance, sinkage, and trim is discussed. The book contains many illustrations, examples, and exercises.

The Management of Merchant Ship Stability,Trim & Strength

This guide, with its coloured three dimensional illustrations provides a unique insight into the subject which can be appreciated visually as well as theoretically. The guide has been designed for the ships library and for those who want and need a deeper knowledge of this subject to improve the management of stability and stress in an operational environment.What differentiates this practical guide from other books is the completeness of its approach. Ships have to meet mandatory design criteria. Physics dictates the way forces then interact concerning the ships stability and strength both in calm water and in a seaway. Understanding these complex relationships more fully so that ships can be operated more effectively is the purpose.

Underwater Welding of Offshore Platforms and Pipelines

It is not the intention of this paper to elaborate on the history of diving and its progression from shallow air diving through surface mixed gas and eventually to that mode known as saturation. However, the majority of hyperbaric welding being performed is by saturated diver/welders, and, for the benefit of those who are not familiar with the expression "saturation diving," a brief explanation is in order.Down through the centuries, technology has decreased step by step the limitations of diving, but probably more in the past decade than ever before. The original limitations were very basic things, such as how long could one hold one's breath, how deep could one breathe with a snorkel, and how long could one survive on the air contained in a diving bell. The first real breakthrough occurred around the turn of the 19th century with the invention of the air pump and the closed deep sea diving rig by August Siebe in 1837. Today, however, there are many methods of diving employed in offshore oil fields, depending upon the nature of work, the depth of water, and the required bottom time. This paper will deal basically with the rather recent and rapid progression of deep diving over the past decade and a half and its relationship to the advancement of hyperbaric welding.

The Handbook of Sailing

The handbook of sailing provides a full-scale 'how to' course in all the essentials. Bob Bond, formerly training manager to the Royal Yachting Association and now principal of the Plas Menai National Water Sports Center as compiled the work so that it can be used by anyone who thinks of taking up sailing, whether in earnest or just as casual means of weekend relaxation. It is also an invaluable source of reference for the more experienced sailor, who may need to improve and up-date his technique. The book provides essential information would-be sailors need to know from the moment they first set foot in a boat in sheltered water to the time when they might be in mid-ocean in a force-eight gale.

Guide to Ship Repair Estimates

This is an invaluable and rare little reference book written for those involved with costing ship repairs. It is rare for providing an independent means by which repairs can be estimated without resorting to tariff rates published by individual shipyards. Invaluable because it is a very practical book containing only information necessary to fulfill the objective of obtaining a useful estimate. The format is simple. Information of the repairs is stated briefly. A table is then provided of the estimated man hours required for a particular job. This book will be a valuable tool for those involved with ship repair.

Piling Engineering

Piling is a fast moving field and recent years have seen major advances in theory, methods, testing procedures and equipment. Some of these changes have been driven by the need for economies and efficiency, reduced spoil production and new methods of pile bore support. Advances in theoretical analyses allow pile design to be refined so that piles and pile groups perform to better advantage. This third edition of the well established book has been comprehensively updated. It provides an accessible and well-illustrated account of design techniques, methods of testing and analysis of piles, with a marked emphasis on practice but with design methods that incorporate the most recent advances in piling theory. "Piling Engineering" is written for geo-technical engineers, consultants and foundation contractors. It is also a useful reference for academics and advanced students on courses in piling, practical site investigation and foundation design and construction.
