Bulk Carrier (Including Draught Survey and Grain Stability) training 14000UAH

Bulk Carriers including Draught Survey and Stability Course

bulk carrier cargo calculation

The bulk carrier cargo calculation training is aimed to achieve overall safety in the entire different vessel’s cargo operation and various transportations of loads. Draft survey calculation training includes awareness and familiarization on the principles of draught survey of the vessels and its operation; the accuracy of calculation different kinds of bulk cargoes for dry cargo and other vessels; provides training to achieve overall safety in stability calculations with regard to internationally adopted standards and grain requirements as per international regulations.

CONTENT: The programme of ship stability calculations training  covers lectures and practical training on the basic principles of draught survey, lecture and practical calculation of intact, probabilistic damage, grain stability criteria and also theoretical knowledge about rules of safe and quality transportation of bulk cargo.

OBJECTIVES: The course has the aim to:

  • Familiarize participants with the concept of the whole operation of a draught survey;
  • Comprehend the concepts of hydrostatics, buoyancy, and Archimedes’ principle, Areas and Volumes;
  • Comprehend static equilibrium of a floating vessel and the relationship of the centers of gravity and buoyancy to righting arms and stability, especially bulk carrier grain stability;
  • Comprehend and identify positive, negative and neutral conditions of stability, understand vessel draft calculation;
  • Know how the ship’s stability curves are derived and comprehend their use in determining stability condition;
  • Enhance skills and knowledge in practice draught survey calculation by hand and program;
  • Ballast calculations commence and complete of load operation;
  • Effect of “CONST” for corrected of cargo calculation;
  • Specific questions could arise during freight operations. Laws and Regulations;
  • Know how to prepare the ship for carrying different cargoes and rules of carrying;
  • Familiarize with ship’s documentations;
  • Know how to prevent damages and to avoid any claims.
  • Familiarize with the concepts of the whole cargo operations of any type of cargo ship when planning to load, underway and discharging the cargo at the port of destination.
  • Comprehend various cargo specification and points of interest before loading;
  • Familiarize with SOLAS requirements of intact stability, carriage of grain and angle of repose ;
  • Induction to basic stability. Basic principles of stability calculation and importance of it;
  • Induction to Grain stability course, familiarization with main values in stability calculations
  • Specific questions that could be arisen during cargo operations. Laws and Regulations with regards to stability matters;
  • Know how to prepare the ship for carrying different grain cargoes and rules for carrying cargoes;
  • Familiarize with ship’s documentation such as stability booklets and stability related IMO Publications;
  • Know how to prevent accidents and damages at sea and in port.
  • Familiarize participants with the concept of stability criteria’s
  • Comprehend various cargo specification and points of interest before loading
  • Comprehend use of hydrostatic tables and data
