Run the Storm Book Excerpt:

In the bestselling tradition of The Perfect Storm and The Finest Hours, “an exquisitely written and dramatic book…a literary page-turner” (Doug Stanton, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Horse Soldiers)—the 2015 mysterious disappearance of the SS El Faro, a gigantic American cargo ship that sank in the Bermuda Triangle, taking with it thirty-three lives. On October 1, 2015, the SS El Faro, a massive American cargo ship disappeared in Hurricane Joaquin, a category 4 storm. The ship, its hundreds of shipping containers, and its entire crew plummeted to the bottom of the ocean, three miles down. It was the greatest seagoing US merchant marine shipping disaster since World War II. The massive ship had a seasoned crew, state-of-the-art navigation equipment, and advance warning of the storm. It seemed incomprehensible that such a ship could sink so suddenly. How, in this day and age, could something like this happen? Relying on Coast Guard inquest hearings, as well as on numerous interviews, George Michelsen Foy brings us “the most insightful exploration of this unthinkable disaster” (Outside), a story that lasts only a few days, but which grows almost intolerably suspenseful as deep-rooted flaws leading to the disaster inexorably link together and worsen. We see captain, engineers, and crew fight for their lives, and hear their actual words (as recorded on the ship’s black box) while the hurricane relentlessly tightens its noose around the ship. We watch, minute by minute, all that is happening on board—the ship’s mysterious tilt to one side, worried calls to the engine room, ship-to-shore reports, the courage of the men and women as they fight to survive, and the berserk ocean’s savage consumption of the massive hull. And through it all, the pain and ultimate resilience of the families of El Faro’s crew. Now with a new afterword, this “tour de force of nautical expertise” (Ocean Navigator) is a masterwork of stunning power.

Random Seas and Design of Maritime Structures Book Excerpt:

Random waves are the most important constituent of the sea environment. They make the design of maritime structures quite different from that of structures on land. In this book, the concept of randomness in waves for the design of breakwaters, seawalls, and harbor structures is fully explored for easy comprehension by practicing engineers. Theoretical aspects are also discussed in detail for further studies by graduate students and researchers. Several additions have been made to this second edition, including a new chapter on extreme wave statistics.

Managing Maritime Safety Book Excerpt:

Shipping is a pillar of global trade, with 90 per cent of the world’s trade in goods and raw materials carried by ship. Despite the economic benefits this delivers, maritime operations can be dangerous, and when accidents occur the consequences are serious. Consequential outcomes from hazards at sea include serious injury, death, loss of cargo and destruction of the marine environment. Managing Maritime Safety will give you a thorough understanding of contemporary maritime safety and its management. It provides varying viewpoints on traditional safety topics in conjunction with critical discussions of the international safety management code and its application. The book also offers new perspectives on maritime safety such as ship and equipment design for safety and the relevance of safety management systems, in particular the application of the International Safety Management code to remote controlled or autonomous ships. The authors all work in the maritime industry, as practitioners, in education, research, government and classification. The combination of wide-ranging and extensive experience provides an unprecedented span of views with a strong connection to the real issues in the maritime domain. This book sets out to provide much needed consolidated knowledge for university level students on maritime safety management, incorporating theoretical, historical, research, operational and design perspectives.

Progress Towards a Maritime Aeronautical Design Standard 33 Addendum Book Excerpt:

The Aeronautical Design Standard 33 (ADS-33) is a performance specification for the handling qualities requirements of military rotorcraft. The handling qualities criteria and metrics of ADS-33 depend primarily on the mission the helicopter has to execute rather than its role or size. ADS-33 requires that the specifications of the Mission Task Element (MTE), the Usable Cue Environment (UCE) and the response type are defined. The current criteria and specifications defined in ADS-33 relate to scout, attack, utility and cargo helicopters for land operations; however there are no requirements related to maritime operations. This technical note provides an overview of work by the Aircraft Maintenance And Flight Trials Unit (AMAFTU) and DSTO, that are collaboratively progressing towards the definition of a maritime hover Mission Task Element (MTE). This involves an over water manoeuvre flown to a floating buoy. Flight tests were performed by AMAFTU, though the current data set is not sufficient to draw any conclusions. Further work is planned to demonstrate the viability of the maritime hover MTE through AMAFTU flight tests and DSTO simulations.

Marine Cargo Operations Book Excerpt:

Marine Cargo Operations clearly spells out the basic principles of cargo operations and acquaints merchant officers with the techniques of stowage and their application. Based on the authors' half century of experience, the book singles out the most practical methods, procedures, and philosophies and presents them in thorough detail. Each discussion is enhanced by photographs or drawings. The book provides a complete understanding of the shipping cycle so all associated personnel can work as a team in observing the three Cs of shipping: communication, cooperation, and coordination. The emphasis of the third edition is on containerization and the responsibilities of the ship's officers for the proper and safe carriage of their cargo. The chapter on cargo responsibility has been updated by an admiralty lawyer, and a new chapter, Stowage of Containers, has been written by a ship's master with thirty years of containership experience. The National Cargo Bureau furnished a chapter on stowage of grain bulk cargo. There are also discussions on breakbulk cargo since the same principles of stowage apply in a cargo hold or in a container. A whole chapter is devoted to how the ship's officer can prevent condensation or moisture damage, the most common cause of cargo damage claims. This edition provides vital information as well as questions and answers for candidates taking a U.S. Merchant Marine license examination, and it is an important refresher for those who received their license some years ago.
