Assessment

Many parameters of the deckhouse that needs to be suspended are taken into account when developing the optimal Towair™ solution. During the assessment phase of Loggers’ SDM information is gathered as a starting point for further analysis. This information includes technical specifications of the towboat and the results of vibration measurements.

Some important parameters are:

  • Engine specifications
  • Propulsion specifications (shaft, propeller blades)
  • Weight
  • Dimensions
  • Center of gravity
  • Mass moments of inertia
  • External forces on the deck house

When isolating vibrations, attention needs to be paid to the risk of resonance. Resonance can result in malfunctioning and even serious damage. The specialists of the Center of Excellence manage this risk by keeping all natural frequencies far away from the disturbance frequencies.
