My Presentations at IBEX2012

I am heading to IBEX and will present/share 3 seminars there:

In recent decades, boatbuilders have been chasing well-trained or low-wage work forces, affordable resources, and reliable supply chains or favorable regulatory climates. The search has taken successful builders literally around the world. They have located production facilities in countries as diverse as Taiwan, South Africa, China, Poland, New Zealand, Argentina, and The Netherlands, as well as prime locations in the United States. What are the real benefits of some of these locales? What should builders be aware of when thinking about moving to or opening a new shop in an unfamiliar region? Our panel of globetrotting boatbuilders will share the lessons they’ve learned.

Speakers: Vic Duppenthaler (One World Consulting Ltd.); Gino Morrelli (Morrelli & Melvin Design and Engineering Inc.); Albert Nazarov (Albatross Marine Design Co. Ltd.)

[PBB] Session 602 — Application of Parametric Method for Design of Planing Craft

Here we’ll examine the features of a planing-craft design method based on a combined analysis of main dimensions and volumes, weight components, performance and range predictions, seakeeping, and construction costs. In explaining this parametric method, we’ll share statistics compiled by Albatross Marine Design, derived from special, pleasure, and small commercial monohull craft with hull lengths below 98.4’ (30m). For the purpose of this method, hull dimensions have been defined from usable areas and essential volumes, with recommendations provided for different boat designs. The data is further categorized by weight group, with equations based on hull dimensions, horsepower, type of propulsion system, and level of accommodations—furnishing, required payload, etc. We’ll also provide approaches for estimating powering, range, fuel efficiency, and ride stability. You’ll learn that this method is a proven and efficient tool for design analysis, as well as for an optimization and feasibility check of design requirements. If you are a naval architect or marine engineer, you should find the case studies in this session to be of particular interest, as they illustrate how this method works for a number of different designs.

[PBB] Session 802 — Accelerations and Their Consideration in Fast-Craft Design

During the past decade, the development of more powerful engines and lighter composite structures has resulted in an increase of speeds for pleasure, commercial, and special craft. On the seaway, this change may often be coupled with vertical acceleration—unsteady motions that seriously affect the comfort of the ride. For emergency stops, sharp turns, or collisions, safety may be an additional consideration as the boat is affected by horizontal-acceleration factors. In transport design and other fields, vertical acceleration is already compensated for in the design, but on commercial, special, and pleasure boats, it may be treated as a residual factor. In this session for designers and engineers, we’ll be discussing how to address these issues at early stages in the design process and how to verify accelerations, for safety and comfort, during sea trials.

Welcome! It will be interesting, and as always I provide a lot of technical data.
