Vessel design, maintenance, & management 1990 - 2017
Electromagnetic Interferences are unwanted signals that
disrupt, obstruct, or degrade electronic equipment
performances. The potential sources of such emissions are
alternative current units, alternators, battery chargers,
blower fans, engines, generators, current inverters,
propeller shafts, radars, electrical wiring, etc.
This US Navy document, published in 1996 and reviewed
in 2010, provides guidelines for designing and installing
electrical cables, cableways, and shielding associated with
electrical and electronic systems installed aboard
submarines, in below decks areas of surface ships, and
many shore-based installations.
Even though this document is primarily written for military
systems, most of its guidelines can be transposed to diving
and ROV support vessels.
Reference USN: S9407-AB-HBK-010 REV-2 CHG-2
These rules provide requirements to vessels performing
particular operations, including sub-sea lifting, cable and
pipe laying services, heavy lift and transport, diving
support, seismographic research services, well stimulation,
fire-fighting, icebreaking, dredging, and towing and escort

For the design of ship equipment and crew training, it
would be useful to develop software for the three-
dimensional simulation of a totally enclosed lifeboat. To
improve the simulation accuracy and immersion of the
software, the authors present a multibody dynamics
model for a lifeboat lowered from a ship, accounting for
the coupled motion among the ship, lifeboat slings, a
cable-pulley system, and the lifeboat.
