3. The process of grinding, shredding, or reducing the size of sewage particles is known as ________.
A. detension
B. maceration
C. bulking
D. chlorinating
Briefly Justify your Answer
4. In ship construction, which of the listed strengthening members act to support the decks?
A. Pillars
B. Girders
C. Bulkheads
D. All of the above
Briefly Justify your Answer
5. Vertical support members used to strengthen bulkheads are called _____________.
A. stiffeners
B. panels
C. stanchions
D. brackets
Briefly Justify your Answer
6. The double bottom in a vessel is a space comprised of ______________.
A. plating forming the engine room tank top
B. doubler plating installed over the flat keel plate

C. a watertight boundary formed by the inner bottom


D. compartments between the inner and outer bottoms
Briefly Justify your Answer
7. The overall dimensions of a double-bottom tank manhole cover are 640mm by 460mm, the ends
being semicircular and of 230mm radius. It is secured by studs, each 200mm2 area at the bottom of
the threads, pitched 101mm apart, the pitch line being 29 mm inside the edge of the cover. Calculate
the stress in the studs holding the cover in place when the tank is filled with sea water and the water
rises in the sounding pipe to a height of 8m above the tank top. Assume the water pressure to act
inside the stud pitch line. Density of seawater 1025 kg/m3.
8. A vessel of 8000 tonne displacement has to lift a load from the quay by a heavy derrick. The point of
suspension of the derrick is 18m above the keel and it plumbs a point 10.7m from the centre line.
KM is 8.8m and KG is 7.9m. Calculate the maximum weight which can be lifted if the angle of heel
must not exceed 7 0.
9. A hopper barge, which may be considered of rectangular from, is 42.7m in length and 16m in breadth.
It has a displacement of 600 tonne, when floating at a draught of 1.8m. A compartment 16m long and
5.3m wide, situated at the centre of the barge contains mud loaded to the same depth as the water line.
The mud has a density twice that of seawater. Calculate the draught of the barge when the bottom is
opened and the mud discharged. Density of seawater 1025 kg/m3.
10. A model 6m long has wetted surface of 2.8m2. When it is towed through salt water at a speed of 4
knot the total resistance is 28N and the frictional resistance is 14 N. Given that the frictional
resistance varies as wetted surface (speed)1.5 calculate the total resistance of a similar ship 122m
long at the corresponding speed.
