watz the special arrangement in the fuel oil system if the main 
engine is always working on fuel oil 03/12/2007 k@Vi SaYs 
u r seeing anyone of the cylinder exhaust temp. in local
fluctuating when the main engine on full rpm..........
watz ur immediate first step? 
Collision bulkhead stiff distance is 60cm and others r 75cm .. 
main engine fuel oil system
if the main engine is always on fuel oil(h.o.), a recirculation line is provided back from the fuel pump in to the mixing column, or to the service tank, and specific capacity heaters are always heating the oil which is being circulated in the line....that’s how you can manage to keep main engines on fuel oil always....

TYPES OF HAMMERS ?
is it PEEN OR PEIN? well its ball peen hammer............
these were asked to my frenz in KOLKATTA 
U HAVE SEEN JCFW EXPN TK overflowing?
what r the reasons? 
WHY PCFW EXPN TK IS AT THE BOTTOM 
unlike jcfw expn tk at the top.?

THE MAIN ENGINE JACKET WATER EXPANSION TANK SERVES 3 MAIN PURPOSES....
1. IT PROVIDES A POSITIVE HEAD ON THE JACKET WATER PUMP
2. IT PROVIDES MAKE UP WATER FOR THE LOST WATER IN THE SYSTEM
3. IT PROVIDES FOR THE EXPANSION AND COOLING OF WATER WHICH IS COMING OUT OF THE SYSTEM AT ABOUT 85-90 DEG CEL.

THE PISTON COOLING WATER OUTLET IS KEPT AT A MAXIMUM OF 65 DEG CEL(SULZER MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDATIONS....
IF WE PROVIDE AN EXPANSION TANK FOR PISTON COOLING,THE WEIGHT OF THE MOVING PISTON INCREASES,BEACAUSE OF THE AVAILABLE HEAD ON THE PUMP,OR THE WATER FILLED PISTON....
WE NEED TO LOWER THE WEIGHT OF THE WORKING PISTON, RATHER THAN INCREASE IT...BESIDES,THERE IS REALLY NO NEED OF MAKE UP WATER FOR THE SYSTEM AND,BEING A DOUBLE BOTTOM TANK,IT MAY PROVIDE FOR EXPANSION OF THE LIQUID AS WELL... 
Famous questions
How will u prepare for a iopp survey
why loadline markings on both sides of the ship
wht r the certificates the ship should carry, validity periods ./. 16 Jan Arpit..... 
its " Ball Pein" hammer.
 maximum pressure or peak pressure as it is commonly called is the max pressure inside the cylinder normally in generators we used to take peak pressures
in an engine cylinder the pressure will not be constant it will be varying as indicated in an indicator diagram. to make calculation easier if we consider a constant pressure acts on piston througout the cycle which produces same amount of power as a varying pressure produces then this constant pressure is called mean effective pressure it is of two types 
indicated m.e.p and brake m.e.p
it can be found from an indicator diagram using a planimeter . 
ton is a unit for measuring refrigeration effect 
tonnage is measure of displacement like dwt
tonne is a unit for measuring weight 
questions
if a main engine single unit exh temp is fluctuating take indicator card immediately for that unit to know what is causing it ,from the card we will come to know whether it is due to exhaust v/v burnout or due to late injection or any trouble with fuel injector jcfw expansion tank overflows due to 
1.crack in cylinder liner
2.filling valve kept open

function 3:-
1) What are the routine tests and maintenance on high expansion foam system?
2) What are the preparations before the ship going for dry-docking?
3) Your have just joined a ship then how will you identify that the ship is following the regulations of marpol annexe 1?
4) What are the entries made in Oil record book?

function 5:-
1) Safeties on main switchboard
2) Safeties and precautions on portable electrical equipments
3) what is the routine maintenance on the starter of main air compressor which is of automatic start stop type?

I have failed in these two functions. I couldn't answer him 1st question from function 3 and 3rd question from function 5.
All other questions i have answered satisfactorily.
