The coastal shipping transport for containers had been serviced by Hanjin Transpotation Co., Ltd. and Korea Express Co., Ltd. from 1995. But Korea Express Co., Ltd. and Hanjin Transpotation Co., Ltd had stopped a coastal shipping transport service routed Busan-Incheon bemuse of getting worse of operation balance in 1999 and 2006 respectively. As a result of these situations, korean-flag and foreign-flag fleets are having difficulty in handling T/S cargos and in-time transport service among inter-ports in korea. As shippers also use lorry to transport their cargos than using costal shipping, it occurs increasing in national logistics` cost as well as time-consuming due to congestion on the road. Therefore, this paper identifies not anly current costal shipping transport systems but also those problems and analyses a economic effect in case of participation in the costal shipping transport service by foreign-flag vessel using monte carlo simulation.

To increase port productivity and efficiency and also to avoid disadvantages of public port management, a port authority system h1s been introduced worldwide. The Korea Port Authority Act was enacted in 2003 and Incheon Port Authority was established in July 2005. The objective of this paper is to develop a strategy of Incheon Port Authority using SWOT/AHP method Research findings show that possibilities of business expansion and growth as well as geographical advantages of Incheon Port are identified as its strength The opportunities of Incheon Port Authority are continuous increase of cargo handling volumes in the Yellow sea rim and expansion of Free Trade Zone. A government two-port policy and growing its dependence on China and rapid growth of more competitors in domestic and overseas are considered to be threat. Its weaknesses include superannuated Incheon port facilities and port hinterland shortages. Based on SWOT analysis combined with AHP method this paper suggests S/O strategy, W/O strategy, S/T strategy, and W/T strategy as a strategic development plan of Incheon Port Authority.

Ship-handling simulation system has been used for maritime traffic safety assessment for harbor and fairway. There exist various environmental conditions under which ship may navigate along a fairway or in harbor. Due to the time and budget limitations, however, ship-handling simulations are usually carried out for very limited number of environmental conditions. In this paper, statistical method for effective and systematic determination of real time simulation conditions is suggested and applied to the maritime traffic safety assessment problems. In the empirical study, the principal component analysis method and the concept of empirical cumulative distribution function are suggested to estimate synthetic navigational difficulty and to select simulation conditions which would impose high difficulty on shiphandling.

Park, Soo-Yong ;
Journal of Navigation and Port Research, volume 32, issue 3, 2008, Pages 215~221
DOI : 10.5394/KINPR.2008.32.3.215
Dynamic characteristics of a structure, i.e., natural frequency and mode shape, have been widely using as an input data in the area of structural integrity or health monitoring which combined with the damage evaluation and structural system identification techniques. It is very difficult, however, to get those information by the conventional modal analysis method from large structures, such as the offshore structure or the long-span bridge, since the source of vibration is not available. In this paper, a method to obtain the frequencies and the mode shapes of a large span truss structure using only acceleration responses is studied. The calculation procedures to obtain acceleration responses and frequency response functions are provided utilizing a numerical model of the truss, and the process to extract natural frequencies and mode shapes from the modal analysis is cleary explained. The extracted mode shapes by proposed method are compared with those from eigenvalue analysis for the estimation of accuracy. The validity of the mode shapes is also demonstrated using an existing damage detection technique for the truss structure by simulated damage cases.

As most of small fishing boats made of FRP have been constructed by experience in Korea, some structural safety problems have been occurred occasionally. To improve the structural strength and reduce the costs for construction and operation, optimum design for small fishing boat was carried out in this study. The weight of fishing boat and the main dimensions of structural members are chosen as objective function and design variables, respectively. By the combination of global and local search methods, a hybrid optimization algorithm was developed to escape the local minima and reduce CPU time in analysis procedure, and finite element analysis was performed to determine the constraint parameters at each iteration step in optimization loop. Optimization results were compared with the real existing fishing boat, and the effects of optimum design were examined from points of view; structural strength, material cost, etc.

The General Conference of International Labour Organization adopted the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 which created a single, coherent instrument embodying as far as possible all up-to-date standards of existing international maritime Conventions and Recommendations in its Ninety-fourth session on 23 February 2006. This Convention prescribes the social security for seafarers in the Regulation 4.5 in the Title 4. Regulation 4.1-Medical care on board ship and ashore and Regulation 4.2-Shipowner`s liability are related to social security for seafarers. For the purpose of ratifying this Convention in our country, first of all, it is necessary to review the domestic laws and regulations concerned whether they fulfill or not the requirements of the Convention and have to make preparation insufficient sections. Therefore, this paper aims to find out different regulations between the domestic law and the Convention, as to be able to accept the requirements regarding the social security of the Convention, also suggest the solution on problems derived in this process.

This study is intended to know what is the legal problems to settlement and public announcement of property right for construction of marine architectural building in Korea. Firstly, the situation and the prospect around marine architectural building are examined Secondly, the legal concepts of marine architectural building and the application of related laws are analyzed. Thirdly, the problems related to public announcement of property right of marine architectural building are suggested. Fourthly, some improvement schemes to solve the legal problems in relation with property right of buildings on the water at sea and ocean are proposed. As the conclusion, the marine architectural building can be divided into fixed-type and floating-type in order to find the proper way to handle the public announcement of property right for that sort of building. The fixed-typecan be registered as real estate according to the Building Law through the amendment of the existing related laws. But for the registration of floating-type building a new law should be made. In the near future, improvements on the legal system related with the settlement of property right of marine architectural building should be made, so that private sectors can join construction and operation of the building. Especially a new law for the floating-type marine architectural building should be made as soon as possible.

This study was to analyze the visual preference of the port landscapes for North port in Busan. Preference related variables came from Semantic Differential(SD) method and then were conducted by the factor analysis. Multiple regression was done for the relationship between the preference and factors. The result found 4 factors, including dynamics, stability, pleasantness and healthiness. Much importance was placed on dynamics among them. Therefore, building port landscapes and their image attracting viewers should consider dynamics in terms of port landscape plan and user attraction development for visual quality management.
