Swanson Building, AMC, Launceston - G53 and G71Summary:
Come a long and listen to the fourth-year AMC engineering students present their final year design project
All are invited to come a long and listen to the fourth-year AMC engineering students present their final year design project on the 18th October. The fourth-years have been working hard all year to come up with an innovative and technologically advanced catamaran and barge design. This is a completely new design which has the potential to revolutionise the shipping industry.
Intrigued…? Come along to the presentation to find out more!
Morning Session (G53)
- 9:00-9:20: Hullform
The hullform of the catamaran and the barge, as well as tank layout/volumes, load line and stability.
- 9:25-9:45: General Arrangement
The design and assessment of the general arrangement of both vessels.
- 9:50-10:10: Structures
The design and assessment of the structure of the vessels.
- 10:15-10:35: Propulsion
The design and assessment of the propulsion systems in use.
- 10:50-11:10: Powering
The selection, design and assessment of the low emission systems on board both vessels.
- 11:15-11:35: Cargo Handling
The design and optimisation of the cargo handling. Both on board and ship-to-barge transfer.
- 11:40-12:00: Motions
The assessment of the seakeeping and manoeuvring characteristics of the vessels.
Afternoon Session (G71)
Following on from the morning session, the fourth-year engineering cohort invites EVERYONE to come along to our ‘Design Expo’.
At this session, each team that presented during the morning session will be represented and are open to questions from both staff and students.
We strongly encourage other engineering students to come along to understand where the maritime industry is headed in the future and to gain a better understanding of the standard of work reached in fourth-year.
This is an informal session, so feel free to come in for as long as you like and ask as may questions as you desire. So, come along and test the fourth-year engineering students’ knowledge!
