Abstract

NUMERICAL ANALYSIS FOR THE DESIGN OF THE FUEL SYSTEM OF A SEA GOING TUG BOAT IN THE NIGER DELTA

Nitonye Samson*

ABSTRACT

The fuel oil system is primarily used to ensure that fuel oil is delivered to the engine free from impurities and water. This system comprises of different components, sub-systems, piping and fittings, valves, pumps, filters, tanks and condition monitoring device amongst others. The components of this system were also designed and arranged according to Classification Society rules and regulations. The total fuel consumption of capacity of the booster pump for the main engines and the auxiliary engines were determined, with the view of the total voyage time, this gave clue for the design of the daily service tanks. The capacities of diesel fuel oil transfer pumps were critically calculated with various factors of safety and the storage tank capacities obtained. Fluid velocities and internal diameter of pipe were calculated from the continuity equation. Hence the capacities of flow through pipe in m3 were determined and the diameters of various booster pumps on board the vessel were obtained through mathematical equations. All designs were carried out obeying classification rules relating to this capacity of the Sea-going Tug Boat bearing in mind the capacity of the load to be transported.
