RECOMMENDATIONS DESIGNED TO LIMIT THE EFFECTS OF VIBRATIONS ON BOARD SHIPS
A decade ago, the French classification society, Bureau Veritas, published guidance notes that are now revised and issued under the same title. The guide is for use either at the project stage of a new design of vessel or for vessels already in service. Although it does not indicate positive methods of eliminating vibration (each case must be treated on its merits), it does show how problems should be approached and what factors must be taken into consideration. There are several recommendations, such as the installation of struts connecting the main engine to rigid elements of the steel work at about cylinder head level. The possibility of resonant response in vertical vibrations due to the presence of torsional vibrations should be eliminated or reduced by the detuning of the line shafting from a torsional vibration point of view.
