Kim, Hong-Tae ; Barentt, Mike ; Yang, Won-Jae ;
Journal of Navigation and Port Research, volume 31, issue 8, 2007, Pages 629~635
DOI : 10.5394/KINPR.2007.31.8.629
Reduced crew performance is frequently cited as a major causal factor in maritime accident causation. Although considerable research has been conducted on the hours of work undertaken by seafarers through interviews and the analysis of records, experimental studies to observe the effects of factors such as high workload, shift patterns, stress, sleep deprivation and disturbance on the cognitive performance of mariners have been limited. Other safety-critical transport industries, such as aviation and rail, have developed fatigue management tools to help manage the work patterns of their operators. Such a tool for mariners would assist shipboard crew, marine pilots and shore management in planning and improving work schedules. The overall aim of this paper is to determine a fatigue factor, which can be applied to human performance data, as part of a software program that calculates total cognitive performance. This program enables us to establish the levels of cognitive performance of a group of marine pilots to test a decision-making task based on radar information. This paper addresses one of the factors that may contribute to the determination of various fatigue factors: the effect of different work patterns on the cognitive performance of a marine pilot.

In many fields, commercial programs or equipments are biting developed and these are getting complicated more and more by adding advantages from existing products. In promoting the usability of these products, design based on the information integration receives attention. However, is information integration always better? In this study, we tried to demonstrate information distribution is more efficient than information integration through conning display design that was propelled by many countries` classification societies. We designed the conning display using many ergonomic methods and conducted its performance experiment. Results of the performance experiment reveal that conning display having two modes (one shows the functions related with ocean and coast voyage and another shows the functions related with docking and leaving port) is more efficient.

Park, Sang-Gap ; Kom, Jong-Won ;
Journal of Navigation and Port Research, volume 31, issue 8, 2007, Pages 653~662
DOI : 10.5394/KINPR.2007.31.8.653
Fishing vessel insurance of National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives indemnifies the assured against marine losses by reason of maritime perils, that is to say, perils of the seas, sinking, stranding, collision, extraordinary action of winds waves and fire, damage, salvage. Therefore this insurance is a rational protective measures for preserving fishermen`s property by the exposure to maritime perils. But there may be some problems on the perils covered by fishing vessel insurance clauses bemuse these clauses are not clearly and accurately prescribed in part. Especially where the assured may claim payment from fortuitous accidents or casualties of the seas musing the loss, they used to raise a question in argument about the ambiguity of these clauses. So these problems may need to be reformed for the purpose of preventing or decreasing those of the assured, the fishermen. After drawing out some problems on the perils covered by fishing vessel insurance clauses, this thesis will suggest the improving schemes on the perils covered by these clauses.

Journal of Navigation and Port Research, volume 31, issue 8, 2007, Pages 671~674
DOI : 10.5394/KINPR.2007.31.8.671
In this paper, the EM wave absorber was designed and fabricated for ETC system, because ETC system has some problems including signal error and system-to-system interference. We fabricated some samples in different composition ratio of MnZn-ferrite, Carbon and CPE, confirmed that optimum composition ratio of Mn2n-ferrite, Carbon, CPE was 40 : 15 : 45 wt%. Complex relative permittivity and complex relative permeability was calculated by the measured data. And absorption abilities were simulated according to different thickness of the EM wave absorbers using complex relative permittivity and permeability. The EM wave absorber was fabricated based on simulated data Simulated and measured values agree well. As a result, the developed EM wave absorber has a thickness of 3.38 mm and absorption ability over 20 dB at 5.8 GHz.
Structural Response Analysis of a Tension Leg Platform in Multi-directional Irregular Waves
Lee, Soo-Lyong ; Suh, Kyu-Youl ; Lee, Chang-Ho ;
Journal of Navigation and Port Research, volume 31, issue 8, 2007, Pages 675~681
DOI : 10.5394/KINPR.2007.31.8.675
A numerical procedure is described for estimating the effects of the multi-directional irregular waves on the structural responses of the Tension Leg Platform (TLP). The numerical approach is based on a three dimensional source distribution method for hydrodynamic forces, a three dimensional frame analysis method for structural responses, in which the superstructure of TLP is assumed to be flexible instead of rigid. Hydrodynamic and hydrostatic forces on the submerged surface of a TLP have been accurately calculated by excluding the assumption of the slender body theory. The hydrodynamic interactions among TLP members, such as columns and pontoons, and the structural damping are included in structural analysis. The spectral description used in spectral analysis of directional waves for the linear system of a TLP in the frequency domain is sufficient to completely define the structural responses. This is due to both the wave inputs and responses are stationary Gaussian random process of which the statistical properties in the amplitude domain are well known. The numerical results for the linear motion responses and tension variations in regular waves are compared with the experimental and numerical ones, which are obtained in Yoshida et al.(1983). The results of comparison confirmed the validity of the proposed approach.

Hydroelastic deformation of pontoon type floating structure in waves is critical in structural design. Therefore, it is necessary to develop additional technology that make to dissipate the wave energy as the submerged horizontal plate. In this study, we investigate the characteristics of hydrodynamic interaction effect by the submerged plate affecting to the radiation forces on a pontoon type floating structure using numerical analysis. We have developed the numerical method based on the composite grid system that consists of moving and fixed grid to compute the radiation forces due to the heaving motion of pontoon type floating structure and submerged plate. The numerical simulations based on the finite difference method are carried out to solve the fully nonlinear free surface involving the breaking waves and compared with the experimental data to confirm the reliability of the numerical method. Then, we discuss the interaction effects on the hydrodynamic forces that could influence on the hydroelastic response of floating structure.

The under developing estuarial port Bupsung is bounded by a river and the sea, and has several well developed tidal lands, where the littoral drift is strong due to the tide and the river discharge. The study area is located at the inner part of a concave bay and has a large tidal range due to the water discharge through the Watan-chun and Junnam-dike. In beginning stage of the ocean physical impact study, the tidal modeling is very important and difficult especially in this area. Moreover, we need a model experiment after the verification of the formulated model based on ocean survey. In this study, we constructed a numerical model to the Bupsung port coastal boundaries, which varies with the past and future development and made simulation with it. The result after development shows that there is a decrease of velocity on flood current and a increase on Ebb current and the minor variation of the tide level, compared with before development.

Journal of Navigation and Port Research, volume 31, issue 8, 2007, Pages 697~703
DOI : 10.5394/KINPR.2007.31.8.697
In this paper, we focuses on the development of Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy modeling in a nonlinear container crane system. A T-S fuzzy model is characterized by fuzzy "if-then" rules which represent the locally input-output relationship whose consequence part is described by a state space equation as subsystem. The T-S fuzzy model in container cranes first obtains a few number of linear models according to operation conditions and blends these conditions using fuzzy membership functions. Parameters of the membership functions are adjusted by a RCGA to have same dynamic characteristics with nonlinear system of a container crane. Simulations are given to illustrate the performance of T-S fuzzy model.
