Ammendments to Fuel standars ISO 8217-2017compared to previous edition

Changes with respect to ISO 8217:2012
This sixth edition reflects important and significant changes. These include substantial amendments to the scope (Clause 1) and to the general requirements (Clause 5).

Changes to the distillate fuels include the following:
— additional grades, DFA, DFZ and DFB have been added with a maximum fatty acid methyl ester(s) (FAME) content of 7,0 volume %;
— the sulfur content of DMA and DMZ has been reduced to a maximum of 1,00 mass %;
— the sulfur content of DMB has been reduced to a maximum of 1,50 mass %;
— requirements for the following characteristics have been added to winter grades of DMA and DMZ: cloud point and cold filter plugging point.

The following annexes, previously included, have been deleted, but the key information is included in the body of this document or is available in referenced industry publications:
— Sulfur content;
— Flash point;
— Catalyst fines;
— Precision and interpretation of test results.

Why is a man hole door elliptical in shape?

Any opening in a pressure vessel is kept to a minimum and for a man entry an elliptical hole  is lesser in size than the corresponding circular hole. More over it is prime concern to have a  smoothed generous radius at the corners to eliminate stress concentration. Hence other  geometrical shapes like rectangle and square are ruled out.  To compensate for the loss of material in the shell due to opening, a doubler ring has to be  provided around the opening. The thickness of the ring depends on the axis length along the  dirrection in which the stresses are maximum and the thickness of the shell. It is important to  align the minor axis along the length of the vessel, as the stress in this direction is  maximum. Longitudinal stress: Pd/2t where P= pressure inside the vessel, d= diameter of the arc, t=  thickness of the shell plating  Circumferential stress: Pd/4t  More over a considerable material and weight saving is achieved as minor is along the  direction of maximum stress.

Shell Expansion Plan

It is a two dimensional drawing of a three dimensional surface of the ship’s hull form. This plan is very useful for the following information:It is used for marking the location of a hull Damage on this plan by identifying the strake number , letter and frame number so that the exact location of the damage and also suggested repairs are marked in a localised copy. The shell expansion can be used for finding areas of painting surfaces such as topside, boot topping and bottom areas by applying Simpsons rules directly.  In the shell expansion the vertical scale used is different from the horizontal scale and a suitable adjustment has to be made when calculating areas. This becomes useful in solving disputes concerning areas of preparation and painting. It gives information on the thickness of the original strake which is indicated by the number in the circle shown in the strake.  The quality of steel used is also shown by letters A,B,D E and AH, BH,DH, EH.
