NEW MITSUBISHI MARINE LOADING COMPUTER (MLC-1600)

The new Mitsubishi Marine Loading Computer was developed for the purpose of making complicated calculations with a high accuracy in a short time and by simple operation. For its central processing unit, a high-performance 16-bit micro-processor, which is considered to be the main stream in the future, is adopted and a character display, an electronic printer and a mini-floppy disk are incorporated making the computer an extremely compact type. Its features include: (1) Complete variety of software programs, for all kinds of ships including ordinary cargo ships, container ships, RO/RO ships, bulk carriers, tankers, and heavy lift vessels; (2) Advanced calculation methods; (a) Longitudinal strength calculation--Incorporating Bonjean data, this computer is capable of advanced calculations based on the latest hull structure design method and has a high-accuracy stress judging capability, making it possible to work out safer and more efficient loading plans than the conventional calculation method; (b) Stability calculation--This computer is capable of stability calculations conforming to the requirements of the IMCO, including stability calculation for grain loading; (3) Display of input and output data places the importance on working efficiency. Data are displayed on the character display in compact table formats, enabling the operator to check and correct the data efficiently. The contents can be instantly output as hard copy by the electronic printer incorporated in the unit. Besides, shearing force and bending moment are also displayed in graph form so their distributions can be easily grasped visually.
