COMBINATION SHIPS: DESIGN REQUIREMENTS--CLASSIFICATION

The design requirements which a Classification Society imposes for combination carriers in general are a synthesis of the individual requirements for each ship-type involved. By way of illustration, the Authors present the case of a ship which carries alternatively oil with a flash point below 60 degrees C and heavy bulk cargo, and within this category the relative structural strengths of ore/oil, OBO and PROBO ships are examined. General arrangement, electrical equipment, fire protection, ventilation of cargo tanks and pipe systems are also discussed. Finally, special strength requirements for BORO and car-transport/bulk ships are discussed. Order from BSRA as No. 48,953.
