SHAFT ALIGNMENT MONITORING USING 3D-COORDINATE MEASUREMENT ON THE HEAVY ICEBREAKER CCGS LOUIS S. ST. LAURENT

A detailed description of 3D-coordinate measurement for shaft alignment monitoring is presented. The method was used during mid-life modernization and refit of a heavy icebreaker, CCGS LOUIS S. ST. LAURENT. The vessel was undergoing substantial repairs of its steel structure, a significant part of which was concentrated in way of the propeller stern tubes and shaft line foundations. The application of an electronic theodolite allows measurement of the exact position of nine points along each of the three shafts within half an hour.
