The participants shall through the course receive basic knowledge of the main disciplines, comprising design philosophy, loads and response, as well as operational and human aspects.
The participants will get an overview of the history of the development of free fall lifeboats and related regulatory requirements. Furthermore, the course covers the overall safety philosophy and design principles for free fall lifeboats.The main steps through the design phase of the Offshore Standard are also covered. These steps/items include:
- Basic dynamics of free fall lifeboats
- Metocean conditions
- Hydrodynamic loads and structural response
- Materials for free fall lifeboats
- Basic statistics and probability distributions
- Safety philosophy and design principles
- Characteristic loads
- Structural analysis and design
- Model and full scale testing
- Operational requirements
- Requirements to occupant safety.
Upon completion of this course the participants will have obtained an overview of the development of the free fall lifeboat technology, as well as the fundamentals of lifeboat state-of-the art design.
Professionals that are involved in free fall lifeboat design and engineers that want to get a good foundation for understanding the technical philosophy behind the new Offshore Standard for free fall lifeboats.
