DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR SEGREGATED BALLAST TANKERS

Sources of routine oil tanker pollution and accidental oil tanker pollution are examined and the effectiveness of proposed solutions is discussed. The existence and status of regulations which affect the design, construction and operation of tankers and are aimed at reducing oil pollution, are examined on the International, Federal, and Classification Society levels. A design methodology is developed for dealing with IMCO '78 Regulations, principally the segregated ballast requirement. Included is a program for computing the final weight curve from the light weight cruve plus a user specified tank loading arrangement. A 75,500 DWT tanker and an 125,200 DWT tanker are redesigned to meet IMCO '78 standards. The additional construction and operating costs involved are estimated.
