Aircraft Carrier Economical as well as technological development of ships and shipping industry has been phenomenal over the past few centuries. Modern supertankers, bulk carriers and aircraft carriers have evolved from the age old clipper ships Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 2 Classification of Ships According to Usage Ships
Merchant Ships Defense Bulk Carriers, Tankers, container ships are used for transportation of cargo (oil, ores, grains, etc) Aircraft Carriers, Submarines, Frigates,
etc play key role in defense Cost effective way of transportation Technologically superior ships Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU Passenger Used for transportation of
passengers Cruise ships have major contribution to tourism industry 3 Ship Safety Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 4 Safety: Big Issue for Ocean-going Vessels
Safety of ships, cargo, crew and passenger ships is the most critical Any flaw in design, construction or operation of ship can cause disasters like Titanic Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 5 Dangers Storm / Heavy Seas Fire
Human Errors Uneven Loading Faults in Design / Construction Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 6
Ship Disasters: Case 1 RMS Titanic Sank : April 15, 1912 1517 People died Cause: Titanic struck an iceberg broke apart into 2 pieces Sinking of Titanic had major impact on the design of ships. While Titanic had double bottom, she did not have double hull. After her sinking, new ships were designed with double hull and fully extended watertight bulkheads Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU
7 Ship Disasters: Case 2 SS Edmund Fitzgerald Sank: November 10, 1975 All 29 crew members perished Cause: Gale Storm Fitzgerald took on water through the damaged cargo hold covers and was then overwhelmed by the gigantic waves Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 8
Ship Disasters: Case 3 Exxon Valdez On March 24, 1989 she ran aground on Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound Alaska It spilled 11 million gallons of crude oil, one of the largest spills in human history Caused major threat to flora and fauna in the region Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU
Port Bow : Front part of the ship Stern : Rear part of the ship Starboard: Right side of the ship Port : Left side of the ship Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 11 Ship: A Big Floating Body Terminology
Roll: Rolling is the motion of a floating body about the longitudinal axis ( axis along the length of the body) Pitch: Pitching is the motion about the transverse axis of the body (i.e. axis along the width of the ship. Yaw: Yawing is the motion of a floating body about the vertical axis. Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 12
Draft of a ship is the vertical distance between the waterline and the bottom of the hull Freeboard of a ship is the vertical distance above the waterline Beam of a ship is the width of a ship at any cross section Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 13 Ship Disaster Investigation Activity

15 General Guidelines Simulation involves analysis of ship disaster case studies. Students play role of Ship Disaster Investigation Agency (SDIA) agents analyzing the ship disasters SDIA agents identify the possible causes for the disaster This activity requires 2 class periods During the first period study the case, identify the reasons for the ship disaster by consulting the SDIA agents guide Present the findings in the given format during the second period Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU
16 Day 1 Analysis of Ship Disaster Cases Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 17 Disaster Case Study Form investigation teams of 4-5 students each Each team gets one ship disaster case to analyze
Read the case carefully Fill the check sheet Look for the clues, they can be present in the case description Consult the SDIA agents guide for more technical information Use conversion factors and formulae if necessary Find the reasons that caused the disaster Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 18 Day 2 Presentation of Findings (Report)
Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 19 Presentation Use the standard ship disaster investigation report template Prepare your report
Identify a team member to present the findings Present your findings to the class Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 20 Case Study Assessment Ship disaster investigation reports will be assessed based on the following quality characteristics
Understanding of the nature of the disaster Ability of SDIA agents to find the clues Ability of SDIA agents to find the reasons for the disaster Presenting the findings of the analysis Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU 21 Wrap Up Return the SDIA agents guide to the teacher Alok Verma 6/09 Lean Institute ODU
