BULK CARRIER OPERATIONS SAFETY ENHANCEMENT PROJECT. PHASE II, VOLUME II. SHIPTANK ELECTROSTATIC MODEL STUDIES

Ship tank Electrostatic Model Studies presents experimental electrostatic results from laboratory scale model ship tank washing and liquid sloshing tests using fresh water, seawater and crude oil liquids. Geometric scaling law relationships based on a linear theoretical description of the electrical phenomena are experimentally confirmed to provide potential means for extrapolating laboratory test results to full scale tank enclosures. Electrostatic model study results are summarized to provide general technical guidelines for ship tank design and operational factors related to electrostatic hazard reduction. Electrostatic instrumentation and numerical computer models developed especially for the scale model laboratory tests are described and documented.
