SYNOPSIS — This paper reports on the development of elastomeric covering systems suitable for the protection of the surfaces of steel and bronze ship propellers. The development of covering systems for steel propellers will reduce the capital costs of propellers and the cost of cathodic protection by providing the necessary protec- tion against cavitation erosion, erosion and galvanic corrosion while providing a smooth surface.

For existing bronze propellers, the covering systems will reduce cav- itation erosion damage and ca- thodic protection requirements, and improve propulsion efficiency.

Paper No. 2 — "Effects of Hull

Foulants and Cleaning/Coating

Practices on Ship Performance and Economics" by John Austin

Malone, David E. Little and Mi- chael Allman.

SYNOPSIS — Relationships be- tween the parameters of ship de- sign, operation and economics af- fected by hull surface condition are discussed and integrated in a

Hull Performance Assessment

Model. Exercises of this model demonstrate that significant ben- efits are attainable through the optimization of hull recoating and in-situ cleaning schedules. The model is shown to be a practical tool to assess alternative hull sur- face management practices for widely varying ship types, oper- ating profiles and economic sce- narios.

Paper No. 3—"Liquid Dynamic

Loads in LNG Cargo Tanks" by

Robert L. Bass III, E.B. Bowles and P.A. Cox.

SYNOPSIS — This paper evalu- ates dynamic sloshing loads in

LNG cargo tanks, and reviews worldwide scale model sloshing data for the purposes of defining design load coefficients. Analytical methods are presented which pro- vide techniques for determining wall structural response to dy- namic slosh loads. A methodology is given for designing various tank structures affected by dy- namic slosh loads.

Paper No. 4—"Service Experi- ence with 125,000-m3 LNG Ves- sels of Spherical Tank Design" by

Joseph J. Cuneo, George A. Gil- more and Edmund G. Tornay.

SYNOPSIS—This paper describes the development and start-up of the Indonesia-Japan LNG trade, and provides the characteristics of the eight U.S.-flag 125,000-m3

LNG vessels used in the trade.

Also discussed are gas trials and voyage characteristics, improve- ments based on service experi- ence, including modifications to cargo and ballast system compo- nents, the main reduction gear, and internal components of the boilers. Design of the cargo con- trol system and reliability in elec- tronic control systems are the most critical factors in determin- ing the operation effectiveness of

LNG vessels.
