  1. 1. Ship and Society : Maritime Ideology in Late Iron Age Sweden

    Author : Gunilla Larsson; Ola Kyhlberg; Mats G. Larsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Archaeology; Ships; Seafaring; Society; Late Iron Age; shipbuilding methods; symbols; sacrifices; boat burials; ideology; leiðangr; long distance journeys; river routes.; Arkeologi; Archaeology; Arkeologi;

    Abstract : This thesis analyses the relation between ship and society against a background of ideological and technological changes in Late Iron Age Sweden. It discusses the factors behind the development of ‘a maritime society’, why ships and seafaring came to play an important role that was also reflected in the use of the ship as a symbol and a metaphor in a military context, as well as in religion, administration, jurisdiction and social life.

  2. 2. Indirect System Identification for Unknown Input Problems : With Applications to Ships

    Author : Jonas Linder; Martin Enqvist; Fredrik Gustafsson; Alexandre Sanfelice Bazanella; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; System identification; Model structure; Unknown inputs; Indirect input measurements; Physical models; Instrumental variable; Closed loop; Graybox model; Identifiability; Ship; Marine vessel; Operational safety; Inertial measurement unit;

    Abstract : System identification is used in engineering sciences to build mathematical models from data. A common issue in system identification problems is that the true inputs to the system are not fully known. In this thesis, existing approaches to unknown input problems are classified and some of their properties are analyzed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural Safety Analysis of Bow-Doors

    Author : Ulf Karlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ship design; structure; safety; fatigue.; arm; IACS S8; damage; bow-door; analysis;

    Abstract : Bow-doors are one of the most vulnerable parts on a RoRo-vessel. At the same time, they are necessary for the profitability of todays RoRo-vessels.The minimum design rules for bow-door systems, stated in the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) S8, constitute the basis for the class rules.

  5. 5. RoPax Ship Collision – a Methodology for Survivability Analysis

    Author : Per Hogström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; non-linear FEA; failure modelling; uncertainty analysis; Crashworthiness; sheet metal failure; ship collision; damage stability;

    Abstract : Throughout the world, ships are continuously being declared as total losses and 10 to 15% of these accidents are collisions between ships. The consequences of a collision are diverse and depend on the ship type, e.g. oil outflow in the case of damaged tankers or loss of stability in damaged passenger ships. READ MORE
