Global performance analysis of floating harbor and container ship for loading and offloading operation

Lim, Sung Ho 15 May 2009 (has links)
The feasibility and general performance of a floating harbor system is studied with regard to the relative motion of a floating quay and a container ship. A 350[m]× 160[m] box-type barge is selected as the floating harbor and it is positioned by a dolphin mooring system. The container ship is tied to the land wall by hawsers. The hydrodynamic interactions between floating bodies and a fixed quay wall in close proximity with a side-by-side arrangement are investigated. A three dimensional wave-body diffraction/radiation panel program WAMIT is used for the calculation of hydrodynamic information and response amplitude operators (RAO) of the three bodies in frequency domain. Subsequently, the vessel-mooring coupled dynamic analysis program WINPOST is employed to produce motion time histories in time domain. The frequency-domain RAO is successfully compared with time-domain RAO in case viscous forces are neglected. Compared to Brajesh Kumar’s (2005) study, 12×12 full hydrodynamic interactions between the two floating bodies are included and dynamic wind loading is considered in addition to wave and current loadings. All the relative motion statistics are calculated from the respective motion time histories for a typical operational condition and a typical survival condition. The relative motion between the interacting bodies is small in the operational condition to ensure the efficacy of container loading and offloading operation from both sides of the ship while the loading and offloading operation is not available in the survival condition.

Motion and Attention

Unknown Date (has links)
The present study examined whether differential motion could influence the spread of attention across an object. In particular, we examined whether the type of motion exhibited by an object would impact the reaction time in which a participant made a judgement on the location of a target or the accuracy of their judgment. We did not find significant effects of motion type upon reaction time. We did find that accuracy was significantly greater for validly cued targets than for invalidly cued targets. Further investigation may be needed to demonstrate the impact of motion upon the spread of attention across an object. / Includes bibliography. / Thesis (M.A.)--Florida Atlantic University, 2018. / FAU Electronic Theses and Dissertations Collection

On the Topic of Motion Integrals

Bertinato, Christopher 03 October 2013 (has links)
An integral of motion is a function of the states of a dynamical system that is constant along the system’s trajectories. Integrals are known for their utility as a means of reducing the dimension of a system, effectively leaving only one differential – or in some cases algebraic – equation to be solved. Invariants of dynamical systems have also proven useful in other contexts, such as in estimation, numerical integration and optimal control. Regardless of the manner in which an integral is employed, finding an analytic form for the integrals of a system generally requires solution of a system of non-linear partial differential equations, with the exception of cases in which certain symmetries of the system are apparent. The objective of this work is to investigate a generalized method for determining motion integrals for non-linear dynamical systems. This method will not work for all nonlinear systems. Indeed, it is expected that the results will test the limitations of this method. In this we consider a method for determining integrals of motion for a small class of dynamical systems akin to the traditional series expansion method for solving partial differential equations. This method involves posing a candidate integral of motion as a series expansion in terms of some set of polynomials. The coefficients of the candidate polynomial are treated as the unknowns in a system of equations. The system of equations is constructed by sampling simulated trajectories of the dynamical system in question. Then the coefficients are solved for using singular value decomposition. There are a number of parameters that can potentially affect this method’s ability to generate an integral of motion that effectively approximates the phase space of the full nonlinear dynamical system. Part of this thesis proposes what some of these parameters might be and investigates how they affect the outcome. A couple of well-known systems are used to conduct these tests: the simple pendulum and the rotating rigid body. The simple pendulum is one of the simplest examples of a non-linear system, and examples of the rotating rigid body in aerospace engineering are ubiquitous.
