Shaft Alignment In A Dry Dock

  Dr. Yuriy Batrak, May 2019 SHAFT ALIGNMENT IN A DRY DOCK Recently our company IMT was asked to deal with the problem of rapid wear of the intermediate shaft line bearings. Many assumptions were considered regarding the possible causes of failures. According to the presented shaft alignment calculation, there should be no problems. Moreover, …

Optimal offsets calculation

Optimal offsets calculation

Reliability of the marine propulsion shafting depends on shaft alignment design (initial bearings’ offsets). The optimal solution should not only meet all requirements of manufacturers and classifications societies but also tolerate inevitable errors and inaccuracies of shaft alignment design and implementation as much as possible. Offset Explorer is a unique tool of ShaftDesigner software finding …

Shaft alignment application: Basics

Shaft alignment application: Basics

Safety first. Shaft alignment design is not an ordinary calculation and implies the presence of certain acceptance criteria that the initial offsets should satisfy. Complying the acceptance criteria is a prerequisite for safe operation. The more thorough the design states are assigned and the acceptance criteria are selected, the greater the guarantee that the shafting …
