Picture of model of urban architecture

Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

This paper scopes to provide a suggestion on the maintenance outline as perceived from the evaluation of an extended literature review on marine engineering systems and applications sourced from research and industrial studies. The present research contributes in the creation and initial implementation of a probabilistic multi-component prognostic Condition Monitoring model for ship machinery and equipment maintenance scheduling. Systems involved include engine internal and external components, starting, cooling, and lubrication and control monitoring systems. The overall reliability performance of these sub-systems and the entire Main Engine’s is suggested. Moreover, this paper will present the components and failure types’ layout arrangement of engine internal and external sub-systems as well as the overall reliability performance of the sub-systems
